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 going to find out 'Were the Romans really rotten?' We will be learning about what impact the Romans had on Britain at the time and looking at how they lived and what strange things they ate! We had a fantastic Inspiration Day where Mr Peacock dressed up as a Roman soldier and appeared in all of the Year 3/4 classrooms - he was very strict! As part of our Roman theme we are just beginning our new English Unit and are studying the book called 'The Escape from Pompeii,' which fits in very neatly with our Roman theme!
