Hello, I’m Miss Chapman and I teach in Year 5. I really enjoy teaching at WBJS as all the children are so hard working and love a challenge! I think the school trips are a great part of life here at WBJS; in Year 5 we go to Newstead Abbey for Christmas Celebrations and this is one of my highlights of the year. I have a particular interest in all matters Eco and lead ‘Eco Warriors’ who work to improve the sustainability of our school. I also lead ‘Geography’, a subject I have always enjoyed as I am a keen traveller.
Favourite Book: ‘Vlad the Drac’ by Ann Jungman
I love reading and my ‘favourite book’ often changes. However, a story which I have always viewed with high regard is ‘Vlad the Drac’ by Ann Jungman. The story is based around the life of a baby vampire who happens to be a vegetarian (much to the distaste of his origin). He is involved in all sorts of mischief and ‘misunderstandings’ when he finds himself in the hands of two siblings who take him home to England. He soon becomes a member of their family and continues his adventures in five sequels.
