Northumberland 0-19 Parents_Carers welcome letter FINAL
This week we were treated to a visit from children’s author, Peter J Murray. It has been a long time, due to Covid, that we have welcomed an author so we were thrilled he was our first visitor, having visited times on a few occasions before. He enraptured our Y5’s and Y6’s (plus the Y4’s from Ovingham First) telling all about his adventure-packed book, Bonebreaker – with participation from some of our pupils too! Then, after break, he gave pupils a spooky insight into Dawn Demon and thrilled them with some re-enactments of the novel. Peter then visited us the next day bringing both copies of his books for pupils to purchase and what a popular event it was; so much so, he actually sold out of books and posters! He did inform us this has never happened before so it just goes to show what keen and enthusiastic readers we have! We have got copies of all of Peter’s books (including his popular Mokee Joe series) in our library for all pupils to borrow. A fantastic event!
