Miss Urry - Teacher
My favourite book is called Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K Rowling. I grew up as these books were released and just remember being so enthralled following Harry's journey in the tournament and all of the twists and turns it brought. The book follows from when Harry is chosen as a fourth participant of the inter-school Triwizard Tournament and how he is unwittingly pulled into a dark conspiracy that endangers his life.
Ms Meade - Teacher
My favourite book is ‘The Little House in the Big Wood’. It is set in the mid- west in the 1870s. Laura and her two sisters travelled across the prairies with their ma and pa in a covered wagon. They faced wolves, bears and epidemics but they tackled these adversities with the love and support of their family and neighbours. Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote about her childhood when she was an old lady and her books were made into a TV series in the 1970s. I very much enjoyed watching this series when I was a little girl.
Mr Grose - Teacher (temporary picture)
I’m Mr Grose and I teach in Year 5 with Mrs Barnes, Mrs Polatajko and Mrs Gower. ‘Pusskin’ is my cat and she mostly runs the online learning pages! My favourite book is actually a non-fiction book which contains useful facts; it is called the Haynes Manual for a Saab 900 (turbo). This is my favourite book and I find it extremely useful; I like reading for a purpose. I’m a maths specialist at heart but have recently enjoyed teaching reading. We try to have fun while we learn in 5G and I look forward to seeing you.
