The Westborough School

Welcome to class 3DS

Your class teachers are

Mrs Davies and Mr Siziba

We also have extra help in year 3 from our Teaching Assistant

Jo Canty 

and from our Learning Support Assistant

Kylie Sparks.

We have PE on Thursday and Friday

Your child must wear their PE kit to school on this day, as they are unable to change in class or the changing rooms. 

They are able to wear joggers, leggings or tights under their shorts on PE days, just in case the weather is not good. If they wear their jumper as usual they will be warm enough. 

Welcome back to the new half term? We are looking forward to another exciting half term with the children!

We will be looking back to the future - a history backed topic.  More information soon.
