Meet The Year 6 Team
Mr Grose - Teacher (temporary photo)
Firstly, I must say that I enjoy reading but mostly information texts. Being unlucky enough to own a rather old car (Saab 900 - the one with the Turbo) I'm always reading the Haynes Manual (ask your mum and dad), mainly how to fix my car. I have been teaching for a large number of years and think that I have taught in every age range! Luckily in my advancing years I am helped by Pusskin with technical aspects of Google Classroom and those whom I've taught will know many stories about that cat. I am looking forward to returning to Year 6 this year and cannot wait to see you all once again.
Ms Meade - Teacher
Hello! I am Ms Meade and I am very much looking forward to teaching Year six this year. M favourite books as a child were the Laura Ingalls Wilder books about a young girl’s trip across the prairies of America in a covered wagon in the 19th century. They had to face famines, wolves, epidemics and terrible weather but, with their family bonds and local community, they got through these hardships. Unsurprisingly, I also thoroughly enjoyed watching ‘The Little House on the Prairie’ series on television, which was based on this.
Mr Wendon - Teacher
Hello everyone, I’m Mr Wendon and I’ve been teaching at St Petroc’s for four years with this being my third year in Year 6. I love teaching Year 6 and all the fun that comes with the final year of primary school – it’s definitely the best year! One of my highlights is the fact that we get to read my favourite book: Holes by Louis Sachar. I love all the twists and turns, flashbacks and surprises that it contains and even though I’ve read it multiple times, it still makes me excited every time I pick it up. On top of that, I love rugby (and most other sports too), spending time with my family, going to the beach and of course, a delicious pasty!
