School Of Roars: Growling Up
Going to school for the first time is one of the biggest things you'll do in your life. You're away from home, fitting in with routines and learning so many new things ... whilst also getting along with a class full of new friends. It's exciting, but a massive change!
SCHOOL OF ROARS helps children prepare for school life by exploring a child's first year through the relationships and experiences of our mini monsters.
Because they're monsters, our little heroes go to school at night, led by teacher Miss Grizzlesniff. The class learn lessons on how to be monsters, like counting the legs on spiders in maths, how to howl at the moon in music, or making delicious Blushberry Blob Cakes in cookery. Our monsters experience life-lessons through their adventures such as caring, sharing, friendship and fun, mirroring the social and emotional behaviour and group dynamics of our audience who are starting school.
We are delighted to feature the following episodes:
I WANT THE HUMAN
Wufflebump really wants to take Brian ‘the class toy human’ home. He thinks the only way to achieve his goal is by being the best at everything. But with each lesson, a fellow classmate gets into trouble and Wufflebump steps in to rescue them, sacrificing his chance for victory… or has he?
The monsters delve into Miss Grizzlesniff’s dressing up chest. Wufflebump dresses up as a super monster, Icklewoo as a pirate, Wingston as an alien and Yummble as a cupcake but poor Meepa can’t find a costume to fit her four monster arms. Can her friends use their imagination and a little bit of spider magic to help?
It’s the day of the class assembly and shy Icklewoo is suffering from stage fright.
While the monsters act out ‘The Tale of Yeti”, their performance suffers a set back. Will Icklewoo be brave enough to step in and save the show?
At film club the monsters decide to make a pretend movie about the dragon brigade. But, when Miss Grizzlesniff gets in a pickle with her popcorn machine, the real dragon brigade rush to her rescue and the monsters capture the action on camera.
Yummble isn’t looking forward to having a new baby brother or sister. He wants his mummy all to himself, so Mrs Grizzlesniff comes up with an idea to make him change his mind. Can the monsters convince him it’s much better to be a monster-mazing big brother rather than a little scrumble Yummble?
