Room 16 listened to the story "I need my monster!" on the website storylineonline.net and loved the idea of having your own pet monster that lived under your bed. We traced around their bodies and made their shadows into scary but friendly personal monsters. The children picked what features they wanted based on the monsters in the book and then they learnt how to mix the colours they wanted and painted them themselves. We had an exhibition and invited all the other classes to visit the monsters and everyone was so excited to see such fantastic artwork from our new entrant class. They took their monsters home to put under their beds so they would sleep well like the character in the book.
