Pottermore - more Potter for the Harry fans

Stand back and wait for this video to go straight to the top of the most viewed YouTube videos of the month.  You can't embed the video so you will have to go to YouTube to watch it.  Click here!
You should go to the site after you have watched the video and have a look, it is all lovely and purpely pink and you will feel all frustrated that it looks somewhat like this (See below as well).  Lots of boys here at King's today very excited when we had a chat about this new site.  Can't wait!

BookGang Movie and Chips night

Last night the BookGang met in the library for a movie viewing.  We gathered around the big TV on the wall, turned out all the lights and watched The Green Hornet from the comfort of the library pit and comfortable chairs.  There were 30 of us all together which included Cursey and Leonie from the school office and Cursey's husband who helpfully picked up our chips from the fish and chip shop which is run by the family one of the BookGang members.

It was awesome fun, the boys enjoyed the movie and were considerably less critical of it than the adults in the room!  We plan to do this about once a term though not always with the chips.

Thanks to Mr Campbell for the sauce and serviettes and Mr Reddiex for funding the chips!

Too many chips for some people to manage!

Junk food and drink and a movie = excellent!

Scorpia Rising by Anthony Horowitz

Review by Chris Harbrow (as part of the 50 Book Challenge)

The final Alex Rider book sees Alex face off again with an old enemy, the Scorpia Organisation, which he has defeated twice before.  There are all the usual thrills and spills in this book that you expect from an Alex Rider book as they try to eliminate Alex.  Alan Blunt is retiring so Alex hopes this means he will get his life back.

The thing I liked most about it was that it was another action packed Alex Rider book with an ending that tied everything together.

What I didn't like about it is that is supposedly the last one in the series. 

We will miss you Alex Rider!  Below is the book trailer.
