Summer 2018 Term Book

Book Club children have chosen ‘Murder Most Unladylike’ by Robin Stevens as their book for the summer term.  Robin sent the children a message:

Dear Y5 & Y6, thank you for choosing Murder Most Unladylike as your book club book! I wrote it because murder mysteries are my favourite type of story. They are so scary and so interesting, but also very safe and fun. But I started reading murder mysteries when I was twelve, and could never find characters like myself in the books that I picked up! I wanted a murder mystery where children were the detectives, and so I created Daisy and Hazel. They go to a school that might seem quite different to yours, but is really very similar. Every school has lots of secrets and surprises … and every school is full of very suspicious teachers! I really hope you enjoy reading Murder Most Unladylike, and solving Miss Bell’s murder!

On Tuesday 24th April, Year Five and Six Book Club children visited Huyton Library for an author event. Kate Pankhurst (author and illustrator of the ‘Mariella Mystery’ stories) talked about her new book ‘Fantastically Great Women Who Made History’ – and signed children’s copies.  Kate is quite well known to many of our children because she has visited Malvern on two occasions in the past.  The article (above) appeared in the June 2018 edition of ‘The Challenge’ free newspaper.
