Welcome to the Grint class page. Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday.

Grint Class (Year 5)


This year the classes have taken their names from inspirational people from Hertfordshire. To tie in with many of the children’s interests, I chose the actor Rupert Grint, famous for playing the fabulous Ron Weasley in Harry Potter. At the start of the year, we will be exploring the highly entertaining character of Ron and then progressing to look more deeply at the actor who plays him.


Rupert Grint lived in Watton-at-Stone as a child and later attended, not Hogwarts, but Richard Hale School. His childhood dream was to become an ice-cream seller and although he bought himself a van in later life, it was acting that became his career. I think it will be interesting for the class to see how someone from the same background as themselves, turned into this incredible and much beloved actor. At the moment, the children are familiar with the character Ron, but our mission is to find out more about the actor himself and what drove him to achieve all that he has. And maybe, just maybe...we might find out his favourite ice-cream flavour along the way…pistachio and choc-chip anyone?


Rupert wrote back to us! He answered all our questions and sent us magical Hogwart's quills to write with. To say we were over the moon is an understatement. Here's a little video to say thank you to Rupert and let you see us jumping for joy. Special shout out to Finley for his special celebration...

The class teacher is Mrs Higgins and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Sargeant, Ms Shadbolt, Ms Bunce and Miss Knott.


Miss Stevens will take the class on Wednesday afternoons.

Ms Ramirez will also teach us for an hour on Thursdays.
