Miss Auld - Teacher
As a child my favourite book was ‘Danny the Champion of the World’ by Roald Dahl. I read it several times and had the story on cassette tape and would listen to it over and over again. I loved the idea of the father and son living in a cosy caravan. It is a thrilling read and has a brilliant ending with the triumph of the father and son.
Mr Banks - Teacher
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 thought 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.
Mrs Lentern - Teacher
I love to read, as it provides an opportunity to escape reality! My favourite books are normally fictional detective style books as I like to read the clues and try to solve the crimes.
However, with my daughter we have recently enjoyed reading 'Matilda' by Roald Dahl and 'Evie and the animals' by Matt Haig, probably because they involve strong female characters who are brave, courageous and resilient.
Miss Williams – Teacher
I have always loved reading, even as a child, and particularly enjoy fictional stories that are written with a verbose language and a lot of humour. My daughter and I are huge fans of Andy Stanton, who has written the series of Mr. Gum books. Our absolute favourite is Mr.Gum And The Biscuit Billionaire, where Mr. Gum seeks the aid of his equal odious pal, Billy William ((a local butcher), to create drama and mischief for the locals of Lamonic Bibber. A wonderful read and means of escapism from all things serious!
