Peter J Murray Visits School

We were very lucky to have had Peter J Murray at our school last week.  He came to talk to us about his new book The Kruschmeister. He told us spooky tales, which left us wanting to read on and find out what happened next. The two little Victorian girl ghosts who played underneath his window, and the little boy ghost who seemed to get closer every time he looked away, have been in my mind ever since!

Peter J Murray visits Coates

We had Peter J Murray in school this week to tell us scary stories about Mokee Joe!  He told us all about how he gets the ideas for his books, and read parts of the books to us, which really made us want to read on!  Lots of people bought copies of his books, which he signed!

Piers Torday – Author in School

We were very lucky to have author, Piers Torday, in school yesterday, talking to Year 5 about his books and how he became a writer.  He inspired us to want to read and to want to write our own stories. Lots of us bought his books –

Piers spent time talking to us, answering our questions and then he signed the books we bought.
