Where The Wild Things Are

Where the Wild Things, by Maurice Sendak, has entertained children and adults alike for nearly 50 years, and the 2009 animated adaptation has ensured that it will always remain very popular. It tells the story of a mischievous little boy called Max and his journey to see the “Wild Things”, an adventure which eventually culminates in him being crowned their king. The resources below act as a valuable accompaniment to the book, and should help inspire animated discussions about the story in your classroom or at home.

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!

I really enjoy putting together eye-catching displays in my classroom and ELHQ always has lots of colourful and engaging material to choose from.

I am new to EYFS and all the planning documents on this site have been really helpful, especially all the templates.

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!
