Welcome to Quartz!


What we have been learning about in Quartz!

It's hard to believe that the Spring term is nearly finished and it will soon be the Easter holidays! 

We've had a great term and have been working hard in Quartz with the children now about to complete this topic by making an explanation booklet about the Vikings. We will put pictures on once they are complete to show you the final compilation! 


Last week we had a Science week and learnt all about magnets. We are hoping that the children may have gone home and told you some of the interesting facts they have learnt, such as - did you know that homing pigeons have a mineral called magnetite in their beaks and this is believed to play a part in helping them find their way home! We all found that fascinating! 


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.
