World Book Day competition

On Monday 29th February 2016 a body was found in the school library.  A murder had taken place!  Pupils solved the mystery by answering clues and unscrambling the letters contained in the clues to work out who was the victim, the method of murder and most importantly of all, the name of the murderer!
