Year 4 Teachers and TAs

Miss Dawes, Glennie Teacher and Year 4 Leader




Mrs Rigden, Glennie TA



Mrs Sears, Beckham TA


"Hello and welcome to Year 4. I am Mrs Sears and I have several years experience as a teaching assistant. I am very excited to be working with the children in Beckham Class in September. We will cover many exciting topics and read some marvellous books. In school, I especially enjoy helping children in maths and ICT. I look forward to encouraging you to be the best you can be.


In my spare time I enjoy going to the theatre and walking.  My favourite thing to do is spend time playing with our dog Poppy.   I look forward to hearing about your adventures."

Miss Grain, Mirren Teacher


My name is Miss Grain and I really love taking my pet dog, Pepper, for walks by the sea.  I enjoy baking, particularly when the recipes include chocolate! Yum!


In my spare time, I am an apiarist (bee keeper), helping to look after two hives and trying really hard not to get stung.



Mrs Gower, Mirren TA


I am Mrs Gower, Mirren's Teaching Assistant and I am very much looking forward to working with you all as you move along your journey at Minterne.  This year you will be in the Drama corrido. Lots of things will be the same and you will be allocated a locker that is close to our classroom.  I’m very interested to hear all about you and what you like to do. I like walking in the countryside with my family and our dog. I also enjoy cooking and baking and I’m often reading. I very much enjoy reading with children and look forward to reading with you. My favourite animals are sheep, chickens, tortoises and red squirrels.
