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. In Key Stage Two, the children are given 3-in-a-Row homework every half term. This is a great chance for them to use their imagination and share their knowledge.
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.
This term we are learning about Anglo Saxons, why they settled here and where. We started this unit of work by having a huge bonfire on the field and learnt all about each tribe. Our class is the Jute tribe! We have been learning to weave like the Anglo Saxon's used to. The children created some fantastic pieces of work using sticks and branches and then weaving with wool and cloth.
