Dear Year 3 Parents and Carers,
In the event of a school closure we would like to remind you of all the exciting Home Learning your child could be doing.
Reading and sharing a book with your child .
The children will be learning about healthy living over the next few weeks.
A little booklet will be coming home today, Friday 10.01.2020, and I have asked the children to record the following information daily:
It would be great if they children could bring this booklet – filled in each day – back to school every day.
2 cups of cold water
2 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp cream of tartar
(Food colour and/or essential oils)
Mix together in a big pot and heat on the stove top.
Keep moving it with a strong wooden spoon until it all lumps together.
Turn out and kneed while hot using kitchen gloves.
Home Learning Words have come home in your child's Reading Record Book.
Please have a look at the last page.
You will find the words and the colour code underneath it
e.g 24.9.19 Green or 24.9.19 Blue etc....
Please practise with your child the words from your child's individual colour category only.
Children will be tested every 2 weeks on these words and will either move one colour word group up or stay on the same for a bit longer.
Every 2 weeks we will update the Reading Record Books, so you can follow your child's progress.
