a Pathway to Success

Monday, 15th June

Hello Year 3,

I hope that you all had a nice weekend and are ready to go for another week of home learning.  Thank you to those children who have shared some of their excellent poetry work on Class Dojo.


  *   Today for comprehension, I would like you to carefully read the information on William Shakespeare.  Shakespeare was a famous English poet and actor, originally from Stratford-upon-Avon.  Use your VIPERS skills to help you answer the questions.


  *   We are continuing to look at right angles within shapes and right angle turns.  A right angle is made up of two lines (often a vertical and horizontal, but not always) which join together to make an "L" shape.  For example, both squares and rectangles have four right angles, one at each of the vertices (corners). A right angle turn is basically a quarter turn.  Have a go at looking at the statements on the attached sheet and see whether or not you identify the shapes from these or whether what the children are saying is correct or not.  I have attached a PowerPoint to help you.


  *   Bury Council are excited to launch a new project that children and young people across Bury can get involved in! Posting Positivity has been set up by Bury Youth Cabinet in partnership with Bury Grammar School. The idea is that we ask children and young people across the borough to write letters or draw pictures for people who are isolated during the covid-19 pandemic. We will vet the letters and facilitate their delivery via our community hubs and to residential care homes in the hope that we can help people to feel more connected to one another.

Attached is some guidance about what to write as we need to safeguard everyone taking part and must ensure that children and young people don’t include any personal information about themselves. We have made arrangements with Tesco is Prestwich, Bury and Ramsbottom so that letters can be posted into boxes at these locations and we’ll collect them. If people are unable to drop off their letters they can simply photograph them and email them to this address (all this information is in the attached document).

           If anybody in Year 3 would like to have a go at this, I am happy that this is completed as your weekly writing activity, instead of the writing task that I have given you.

Don't forget to keep your 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times tables ticking over and also make sure that you are able to show the inverse operation to each fact, for example 4 x 8=32, so 32 divided by 8 is 4.  Also, some of you are now very confident with all of the times tables we have looked at, so if you feel that you are, I would like you to begin to learn your 6, 7 and 9 times tables.

I hope to see you all soon.

Take care and keep safe!

Mr G
