A magical start to our 2016 Book Week

We've had a truly magical start to our 2016 Book Week! Neal Layton author and illustrator kept pupils spellbound with his sketches and stories.

He explained how he comes up with ideas and that it took an astounding four years to illustrate, write, and research The Story of Stars, his latest children's book. He showed in detail how his characters Arabella and Oscar and Mammoth Academy came into being.

Pupils were full of questions and Neal took the time to answer them all.

Frances Hardinge captivates pupils at Mayville High School

Frances Hardinge, winner of the Costa Book Awards, captivated pupils at Mayville today as she let them into the secrets of how she comes up with ideas for her novels.

The quirky, down-to-earth, funny novelist, who admits she was stunned by the literary prize bestowed on her for The Lie Tree, described herself as: "A deranged magpie looking for shiny interesting stuff" when it comes to finding ideas. She compared the research process to looking through "A giant fat car boot sale". She also admitted that the arduous process of rewriting her work before publication often made her hate her books, but then, she said she "Falls back in love with them" once they are finished, bound and on the shelves. 11 year old Sarima, who's in Remove, was lucky enough to interview the author for BBC Radio Solent who came to record a feature on her visit. Sarima said: "She was amazing I love her books! She really spoke to us so we could understand. I will definitely be a writer now."

Mayville High School  would like to thank Frances Hardinge.

Mayville to race green kit car at Goodwood

Mayville High School has secured funds so it can buy, build and race a Formula 24 Kit Car at Goodwood. The Greenpower Kit Car is designed to give children the opportunity to design build and race an electric single seater car on some of the UK's top motor circuits. The PTA has pledged £2000 towards the venture and the extra money needed for the project will come from fundraising ventures at school and also from private sponsorship. Girls and boys interested in becoming the next formula one car designers of the future will have the chance to learn skills first hand at an after school club where the car will be built and tested by staff and pupils
