The Property

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 are monsters, our little heroes go to school at night, led by their lovely teacher Miss Grizzlesniff.

The class learns 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 behavior and group dynamics of our audience.

The Characters

Let’s meet the 5 little monsters together! From right to left:

  • WUFFLEBUMP: He is the largest monster in class and is always bumping into things and tripping over his tail. He is a daydreamer who can be easily distracted. He absolutely loves looking after his pet “monster-dog” Gowlbert.
  • ICKLEWOO: She is the smallest monster in class and she finds it difficult to be heard with her tiny voice and even tinier growl. She is shy and can get stage fright. She always wants the very best for her friends. Sweet and loyal, everyone loves Icklewoo!
  • YUMMBLE: He has a constant monster appetite, so he is always looking for food. Sometimes he accidentally forgets good manners, but his giant heart is much loved by his classroom chums.
  • WINGSTON: He is a winged-wonder and impresses his chums with his amazing aero-BAT-ics! He has a brilliant brain and is the cleverest monster in class. Like all genises though, his thinking is so fast that sometimes it’s hard to concentrate on one thing at a time! He likes to help his friends out if they get stuck in lessons and they love hearing his fascinating facts.
  • MEEPA: She loves talking and often finds it hard to sit still. She loves dressing-up and being the centre of attention to entertain her friends. Meepa takes every opportunity to make noise in class and loves answering questions.
