This excellent wall display was made for an assembly hall. Using the book ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ as a starting point this Year 2 class made up their own monsters using different materials.
Assembly hall displays give a great opportunity for classes to share their work with the rest of the school. Hall displays tend not to get changed quite as often as classroom displays but it is important to keep them fairly fresh. I think they should be changed at least once every term. The subject needs to be even clearer than for a classroom wall as the audience will not have been involved with the work and so will not have much context for it.
In my old school hall displays were often put up in conjunction with a Sharing Assembly where the class concerned shared what they’d been doing with the rest of the school. It usually worked well and provided an extra opportunity for the class to reflect on not only what, but also how they had learnt about a topic.
This is such a lovely display and it is based on one of my all time favourite children’s books. I think every child should have a right to meet Max in his wolf suit and travel with him to the wild rumpus and be home in time for supper to be “still warm”.
