Welcome to Quartz!


What we have been learning about in Quartz!


The children have worked very hard on our topic of the Stone Age and we are now coming to the end of the unit. We started off by discovering a very strange, life size foot print on the field....!?  After some research, we discovered that it was the life size footprint of a Dinosaur....a was very exciting and a great way to start our new unit.


We have studied the book The Stone Age boy in English and written our own adventure stories. Plus, we have been archaeologists in History where we have used evidence and findings to learn about how Stone Age people lived. It's been a great start to the new academic year and we are pleased with how the children are progressing.


Reminder: As our days are getting cooler please can all children have suitable, warm outdoor clothing for P.E on a Monday and Wednesday. Thank you. 


Useful general Information


We are a class of Year 3 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. 


Every Monday and Wednesday we have P.E. We will start swimming on a Wednesday afternoon from February 2020.. Please could we ask that all children have some warm clothing for outdoor P.E as the weather becomes cooler. 


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.
