Science Week in Year 3

This week in year 3 we investigated how skittles react with water.  We were amazed to see how the colours ran!  We learnt that skittles are coated in food colouring and sugar so when they are mixed with water the coating dissolves and spreads through the water!

Homework will be sent out on Thursday and should be returned to school on Tuesday. The homework menu allows children to choose which homework they would like to do each week based on what subject interests them the most.  Please date the menu to show which homework has been completed each week.

Reading Records are to be in school every day whether your child has read or not, this is so we can record any comments that we may have during Guided Reading sessions. Reading books may be changed daily if the Reading Records have been signed by an adult to show a book has been read. All Reading Records are checked on regularly to ensure that children are reading at home.
