Monsters Invade Beaumaris Campus

Over the last few weeks, Year 7 students have been working hard in English on their monster projects. Students researched famous monsters such as the Loch Ness monster and the Yeti and involved using both the internet and books. During the process they learnt how to take research notes and how to write a bibliography. Once this was complete it was time to get creative, the boys engineered their own monster. Year 7 students have enjoyed this project and created some amazing monsters. The monsters were then introduced to an audience of staff through an oral presentation. Following the presentation, the boys were rewarded with a morning tea of monster eye-balls and monster biscuits prepared by Mrs Bell The monsters will be on display in the library.
So meet…
