Welcome to Zebra Class - Year 6!
Zebra Class are taught by Mrs Lomax and supported by Mrs Jones and Mrs Cripps.
Mrs Ewence teaches the class on a Wednesday.
It is hard to believe it is so far through the year already and is now our final half-term! After getting married over Easter I am now Mrs Lomax though I will still answer to Miss McCrea as I think my name change may take a little while to catch on for both the children and for me!
We are looking forward to what is both the most exciting and the busiest term in Year 6 as we rapidly head towards the end of the year. We are hard at work rehearsing our play 'Ali Baba and the Bongo Bandits' and also have secondary school visits, the Isle of Wight trip, the prom and the leavers assembly to come.
As always, please let us know if you have any worries, concerns or questions. We are always happy to help. Mrs Lomax or Mrs Ewence will be out on the playground at the end of each day or pop into the office to make an appointment to see us.
