Philip Pullman - Year 6

In Phillip Pullman we enjoy exploring our learning.

Miss George

Our team is made up of Miss George (Teacher), Mrs Williams  and Mrs Bentham.

Miss George's favourite childhood book is The Story of Tracey Beaker. 

"This was the first book that I read and after I finished I thought, reading is so fun! I love the way Jacqueline Wilson deals with real and relatable issues in a way that is easy for children to understand".

Our Class Author - Phillip Pullman 

Why Christians should embrace Philip Pullman - Catholic Herald

Sir Philip Nicholas Outram Pullman CBE FRSL is an English writer. His books include the fantasy trilogy His Dark Materials and The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, a fictionalised biography of Jesus. In 2008, The Times named Pullman one of the "50 greatest British writers since 1945".

As a passionate believer in the democracy of reading, he doesn't think it's the task of the author of a book to tell the reader what it means.

The meaning of a story emerges in the meeting between the words on the page and the thoughts in the reader's mind. So when people ask me what he meant by this story, or what was the message he was trying to convey in that one, he has to explain that he's not going to explain.

Pullman: "I'm not in the message business; I'm in the "Once upon a time" business."
