Maria | 8 comments Hi Everyone, I'm currently planning a block of literacy for Adventure and Mystery. We are starting the topic after half term so I want a range of stories to show the children, so we can explore characters/settings/plots etc .. If anyone has read any books or short stories that might work well here it would be great to add some more to my list!
thank you, any help would be much appreciated :)

What year group, Maria? Lauren St John's Dead Man's Cove is probably fine for confident Y4+. Malorie Blackman's Hacker and ANTIDOTE Y5+. I'll add more as I think!

Ro (roswe) | 11 comments Oh R. A Montgomery has a series called choose your own adventure. Where you read and choose where you want to go next in the story quite exciting because your choice leads you to a different path.. exciting for reluctant readers and good because you can read to the children then have a vote for the chooses to what page to go to next. 8+

Utterly Me Clarice Bean might be a good idea. Also The Great Escape and Scribbleboy. There's a new Roman Mysteries book for younger readers The Sewer Demon which could be good. Let me know how you get on!
