We wrote postcards to her to express our feelings and gratitude towards her for sharing her story. Today we received a postcard back from her thanking us for taking the time to write to her, memorable post for the children.

Spellings

 

We are running spellings with a slight difference this term using a new programme called Blaze. All pupils will be tested on the same spellings so pupils will not be in three groups as previously. Please find the spellings for the next two weeks below.

Bouncebackability Afternoon

 

Welcome back to Spring term here in Quarry Class. Today we have launched our new Darwin Value for this half term Bouncebackability!

Pupils completed a number of activities all focused on resilience. I was amazed by the lovely ideas that have filled up our Bouncebackability Box, ask you child about what piece of advice they put in our box.

Please find below the songs children are practising for the Key stage 2 Christmas service. We have popped them on here as some of the children wanted to continue their practising at home.

Here are this weeks spellings. This half term we will be focusing on the Year 3 and 4 curriculum spellings, therefore you will notice that all of the spellings are very similar across the groups. It is very important that pupils start to use these words correctly within their writing.

Darwin Values afternoon

 

This afternoon (9th November) we launched our new Darwin Value of Stickability!

After Mrs Benge shared a story with the children on Monday about how a Frog had to swim and swim and swim to get out of a bucket of cream, they were desperate to try making butter for themselves. I took a lot of shaking and there were some tired arms in the room but we stuck at it and finally got there!

Well done Quarry class!
