‘ENTER if you dare!’ was the warning given out at a Southwick school when monsters were roaming the corridors.

Strange looking creatures appeared in the year-three classrooms at Glebe Primary School, in Church Lane, for Monster Day.

Those who were brave enough to go inside last Monday discovered a scene looking like aliens had taken over.

At the morning assembly, the children looked so amazing, head teacher Jo Kelly said: “I shall just have to imagine you are rows of pretty flowers looking at me, otherwise I will be too frightened to carry on!”

The dress-up day was part of the Moving Monsters topic, which has used the theme for writing play scripts in literacy lessons, making pop-up books in DT and baking cupcakes in cookery.

Pupils also had the opportunity to do a morning art session with textile artist Arthur Ridley, which saw them using fabrics and yarns to produce colourful pictures inspired by monsters.

Year-three teacher Matt Miller said: “The children have made a fantastic effort for our Monster Day and they all look absolutely brilliant.”

Fellow year-three teacher Clem Lewis added: “Fun days such as these are really designed to help to engage children in their learning, which is exactly what we have done today.

“However, I am happy that tomorrow they will come in as children again – and not little monsters! Well, that’s the plan…”
