Teacher's Comments

Welcome to Ennis Class!

We are named after one of Britain's best female athletes – Dame Jessica Ennis.

Jessica Ennis has had a fantastic career in athletics, competing mainly in the heptathlon where she had to take part in seven different track and field events. She has won an Olympic gold medal as well as winning the world championships three times! She is the current British National record holder for the heptathlon. As a result of her fantastic achievements in sport, the Queen decided to make her a dame – a very special honour!

Jessica Ennis first started to compete in athletics when she was only 10 years old and has been trying her very best ever since. In Ennis Class, we also try to be the best we can be and help our friends to achieve the same. Just like Jessica Ennis, if we face a set-back, we don't give up and we learn from our mistakes.

We're learning lots of exciting and new topics this year including learning about London, space, animals and the rainforest. We enjoy finding out about these interesting topics and learning some great facts! We love working as a team and trying our best to solve problems, just like Jessica Ennis.

We can't wait to see what this year brings!

I always believed. And when you do that, life can get unbelievable.
