Staying Alive in Year Five
In class, we started reading a book called “Staying Alive in Year Five”.
This story is about a boy called Scott, who starts a year with a new teacher called Mr Murlin. But strange things start to happen.
For example, the class comes back from recess and they find their tubs full of live fish. Another time, Mr Murlin comes to school with a miniature house. As Scott and his classmates watch the house, the people inside it start to move.
I think this book is very interesting. If you read it, I bet you would like it as much as I did.
This from Maddie:
These last two weeks we have been reading a novel called “Staying Alive in Year 5”. Written from one boy's perspective, he is telling the reader about his first term in Year 5. The reason the book is so funny and interesting is because there is a new teacher called Mr Murlin who does certain things that make him unusual such as: make a real aquarium inside the children's desks, keep a chainsaw in the cupboard in case they're extremely naughty and makes it compulsory to eat bubblegum in class.
With his friend Johnny they discover a lot more about Mr Murlin, there are more stories that involve a heart attack, an angry Principal, and an office tied completely up with string.
What a first term in Year 5 that would be, and the end …wait I can't spoil it for you!!!
I totally loved this book and recommened it and I think you would to.
