Please help a teacher stuck in a rut.

I'd like to rename my reading groups, there will be four, preferably after the best fictional creatures. Have trawled a few lists website but am not yet decided or inspired. I'm working with ten year olds so the gruffalo etc are too young to appeal.

Any help much appreciated!

Mr tumnus?

I used to have Pegasus, Grendel, Dragon, Phoenix, Hydra, and Unicorn as my group names.

The Jabberwock? The Jubjub bird? The frumious Bandersnatch? grin

The Vermicious Knid?

A child, according to the unicorn (or something) in Alice in wonderland?

Centaurs
Puffskeins
Nargles
Unicorns (maybe a bit girly?)

Minotaurs
Gryphons (sp? Looks weird however I spell it...)

Daemons. Or Pantelaimon if you're looking for specific names.

Or Balrog.

What about a hippogriff from Harry Potter. There must be loads from those books, but I can't think.

Also, mythology would be a good source - eg pegasus

psammead

Damn, people got there before me. Pozzled I loved those books so much.

Mr Tumnus
Cheshire Cat

just don't put any poor spellers on psammead as that would be cruel.

Good point peri it's a lower ability set... Hippogriff should help with consolidating double consonants!!
