                                What we have been learning in Quartz!



We are now fully into our new topic of the Rain Forest. It's very interesting and through this topic we are covering a lot of different parts of our curriculum. For example, our English text is the Great Kapok Tree with lots of fantastic vocabulary, images and sentence structures that we need to learn. In Geography we are learning about the location of the Rain Forests through maps and atlases and many different aspects of them. In Computing we are learning to use Publisher software to capture our research into the Rain Forests. 


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.
