Year 6

  • Miss Katharine Smith

    I have been at West Jesmond for four years and as part of my role in school, I am the Upper Key Stage two lead. I enjoy all subjects and have a particular passion for PE. I lead Geography throughout school and look forward to Humanities lessons all week!

  • Miss Laura Ward

    I have now taught at West Jesmond for a total of seven years and for three of these I have been in Year 6. Some subjects I enjoy are Maths and PSHE. I also lead on PSHE across the school and have an interest in how the new aspects of this area of the curriculum can support children's social and emotional development.
