Year 3

  • Mr Ben Collier

    Class Teacher

    This is my second year at West Jesmond and in Year 3. I completed my NQT year in unusual circumstances last year so it is good to be back in school proper. I really enjoy teaching, especially the Humanities topics, and I always aim to foster a love of reading in the classroom. I enjoy all sports, and I am a keen historian.

  • Mrs Cath Laidler

    Class Teacher

    I have taught in West Jesmond for a number of years both in KS1 and KS2. I am particularly passionate about children understanding and appreciating the importance of a healthy lifestyle and am collaborating with Mr Rimmer to promote this aspect of DT. I am looking forward to a happy and productive year working with the children.

  • Mrs Carrie Young

    Class Teacher

    I have been teaching at West Jesmond for 19 years. Throughout that time, I had several different roles. I love teaching, especially English, PSHE and PE. I enjoy spending time reading and getting lost in a gripping story, I am hoping to pass on my passion and love of reading to my pupils.

Welcome to Year 3
We understand how important this transition year is to you and your children and we will do our best to ensure that the learning is exciting and interesting for all.
Key Info
