Year 3 2019 - 2020

Mr Jones

My name is Mr Jones and I have recently joined the Westminster family. I have been teaching since 2016 and I am really enjoying my role here at the school. Since 2016 I have worked in lots of other schools, across different year groups. I have a passion for teaching all subjects but I love teaching Maths. Aside from my teaching qualification, I have a degree in drama and love involving this in the classroom when I can.

If you wish to talk to me about anything, I will be happy to help.

Welcome to Year 3
