Nonsters – Monsters with nonsense names

Class 5 have been reading a poem by Lewis Carroll titled “Jaberwocky” which is a poem that describes a monster named the Jaberwocky using nonsense words (read the poem here). Nonsense words were created by merging two or more words together to make a brand new word.

Class 5 had fun creating some of their own monsters in class and giving them names using nonsense words. Individually, they created the monsters names by mixing two describing words for the first part of their name and mixing two sounds that the monster would make for the second part of their name. As a group they also made up a poem of their own about another monster which they had created called “The Moily Greefly”. Have a look at the results below.
