Helen Moss Visits Year 4
Year 4 are currently reading an exciting book called “The Mystery of the Hidden Gold” by Helen Moss which links to our Treasure Hunters topic. On Wednesday 28th November, we were lucky enough to have a visit from Helen Moss who has written a whole series of mystery books called “The Adventure Island” series.
Helen came in to do an assembly to Years 2,3,4,5 and 6, where she talked about herself, how she became an author and what ingredients are needed to write a mystery story.
At lunchtime, Helen sold some of her books and signed some autographs.
In the afternoon, Year 4 attended a workshop where we planned and solved our own mystery stories using characters from the Adventure Island series. We used maps, clues, and scrunched up bits of newspaper to help us. It was a fabulous day and we are currently writing our own mystery stories – so watch this space as we will be publishing some of them soon !
