Popular author Robin Stevens visited OMS on Monday 8 October, speaking to all our Year 5, 6 and 7 pupils. She talked about her childhood, her favourite mystery books and her creative inspirations. Robin also talked about her own murder mystery novels – the ‘Murder Most Unladylike’ series – and even guided pupils to create their own plan for a crime story!
After the presentation, Robin signed copies of her novels. Lots of OMS pupils bought copies, plus we got some extras for the school library. Our Year 8 Reading Ambassadors did a fantastic job of running the event and the book sales and signing. We are also grateful for the support of Seven Stories – the amazing children’s books centre in Newcastle – for making the event happen, and for selling books on the day.
