Welcome to Zebra Class - Year 6!
Year 6, or Zebra Class as we are also known, are taught by Mrs Adams on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning and Mrs Lomax on Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday. The class are supported by Mrs Cripps.
We have had a busy but hardworking start to what we hope will be a year full of exciting opportunities, hard work and fun. We can't believe it is already Term 2!
It was lovely to see you at parental consultations and as always, please do ask if you have any further questions!
Please check the website regularly for updates.
Please let us know if you have any worries, concerns or questions. We are always happy to help. Mrs Lomax or Mrs Adams will be out on the playground at the end of each day or pop into the office to make an appointment to see us.
In English this term our core text is 'The London Eye Mystery' by Siobhan Dowd. We are really enjoying the story so far and can't wait to find out what happened to Salim!
