    • Mystery-Mr KT
    • Come put on your long, black trench coat, dark hat, and bring a magnifying glass with you.  It is time to solve the case with our exploration of mystery stories.  We will investigate a range of different mystery stories and authors.  You might like to suggest some stories and authors you have in your collection.  The crew will also take a trip back in time to the classic mystery authors such as Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes.  We will look at the techniques and strategies good authors use to drop clues and build the tension as we read.  As a group, we will attempt to discover the answers to why we love getting wrapped up in a creepy mystery that must be solved!     
    • Other Reading Workshops:

    • Comics-Mr KT
    • Have you ever been told that comics are not literature and that they are a waste of your valuable reading time?   Well think again comic book lovers!  If you want to learn why Tintin was such a great detective and was able to travel to so many cool destinations, why Azterix always looked tough, why Batman looks really angry and scary in his comics....then this is the group for you!  We will learn and discuss how the great comic book authors of our time created such detailed and exciting pieces of work.  We will explore the techniques and skills they use to make a comic book appear almost like a cinema experience.  You may even get the chance to design and write your own best-selling comic.
