Welcome to Quartz!


What we have been learning about in Quartz!



We are very excited about our new topic this term all about Journeys! We will be reading two books as a class - 'Journey to Jo'burg' by Beverley Naidoo and 'The Lion Boy' by Zizou Corder. Both of them are about children going on exciting and sometimes rather scary journeys. 


To start the topic off we went on a trip to the Outwoods for a long walk and a picnic. It gave the children chance to learn about the different landscapes in their community and local area. They learnt about  residential, industrial and rural areas and how to read maps and use a compass. It was a fantastic day and thankfully the dry weather held out for us. 


Useful general Information

We are a class of Year 3 and Year 4 children and have two teachers: Miss Beeken and Mrs Haynes.

Miss Beeken teaches the class on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mrs Haynes is the teacher on Thursdays and Fridays. We have lots of fun learning new things together and we would like to keep you up to date with what we are doing.


Every Wednesday and Friday we have P.E. However for half of our Year 3 children they will begin on Wednesday 12th September with the other half of our Year 3 children beginning later in the year. For our Year 4 children Indoor P.E is on a Wednesday and outdoor P.E is on a Friday. Please could we ask that all children have some warm clothing for outdoor P.E as the weather becomes cooler. Thank you. 


Spellings are sent home every other Thursday and the children have a folder that they can keep their spellings safe in. Every alternative Tuesday they will then be tested on their spellings. Please ensure that your child brings their complete spelling homework on these Tuesdays. 


We aim to create a supportive environment in Quartz Class where we learn to work together to the best of our ability. You are welcome to pop in to speak to us if you have any concerns or just have a question you’d like to ask.
