Hello everyone! My name is Mr Edney and I have recently moved to teaching Year 4 after teaching Year 6 for the last four years. Looking back, my favourite book as a child was definitely 'James and the Giant Peach' by Roald Dahl. I loved the idea of an epic adventure inside a peach, and the centipede is without a doubt my favourite character. I think the best part of the story still is that James manages to escape evil Aunt Sponge and Spiker in the end!
My name is Mr Scott and I teach in year 4. My favourite books are the Hunger Games Trilogy. I don't usually go for blockbuster dystopian stories - but this trilogy is imaginatively conceived and well written and a genuine page-turner. Sixteen year old Katniss takes part in a terrifying annual televised game where teenagers fight for their lives. It's often disturbing, but it certainly will hold the attention of even the most reluctant reader.
Hello everyone. My name is Mr Banks and I teach in 4B. I have always had a love for reading. As a child, I would spend many hours reading; my favourite book is The Hobbit. I loved imagining other worlds and going on adventures – especially walks through the woods and pretending that I was in the middle of Mirkwood. This absolute classic, sees the great adventure of Bilbo Baggins and the Dwarfs as they make their way through Middle Earth trying to return the dwarves to their home currently besieged by a dragon. As the adventure unfolds, we find a very timid hobbit learn that he can step out of his comfort zone and become more than he ever though he could. Currently, I am reading the Alex Rider series and really enjoying these exciting and thrilling books. I also love reading to my girls – our favourites are books by David Walliams and Roald Dahl.
