Welcome to Quartz!


What we have been learning about in Quartz!


Where has the year gone? It seems to have flown by and we are starting to reflect on all that we've done together throughout the year and what we've enjoyed. However, we are also beginning to prepare the children for the change of class next year by talking about where they might move to and what they're looking forward to. 


With all that said, we still have three weeks left of this term and there is a lot to fit in. We are about to start our Science Week on Electricity and the children are very excited about using the equipment and making their own circuits. We are aiming to learn about simple and parallel circuits as well what are good insulators and conductors..... we will be busy bees!


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.
