Who you Calling MONSTER? – Heroes and Villains

England, Scotland, Wales

Vampires, werewolves, zombies and ghosts! Yikes! What do they want? How can we stop them? Do we even WANT to stop them?

When villainous monsters appear, you need heroes. But why are we afraid of villainous monsters? Maybe we really just need to understand them? A lighthearted look at the concepts of ‘good’ and ‘bad’, for KS1-2.

In this thought-provoking session, your class will have the opportunity to workshop creative ideas with our professional facilitator. Get ready to let your imagination run wild! Who knows what your spooky lot might find when Trick or Treating!

But it’s not all dares and scares. After all, why are we afraid of monsters? Could it be that they’re afraid of us? Maybe all it takes is a little bit of understanding, and then they might not seem like monsters at all. And if there are no monsters, then we won’t need to worry about being the superheroes.

‘Who Are You Calling a Monster?’ looks at heroes and villains from both sides of the story, making monsters less scary and seeing the hero in all of us!
