a Pathway to Success

Thursday, 18th June

Hi Year 3,

I hope everybody is keeping safe and well.  It has been nice to see those of you who have been in school this week.


  *   Today you have a choice for your writing.  If you wish you can have a go at some more word play poetry on the attached PowerPoint, "The Racetrack of Champions" and write three or four verses of your own.  This is similar to the work which you carried out last week and I was impressed with what you showed me.  Don't forget to share your poems on Dojo!  The other choice is to write the Bury Council letter, if you have not already done so.  I have attached the guidance again and explained below what you have to do.


  *   We are now moving on to look at money.  Today is a "gentle" introduction to this topic and is seeing how well you are able to identify different coins and notes and whether or not you can work out the total amount of money.  Most of you should be able to start with the second sheet.


  *   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


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.

Take care and I will see you soon.

Mr G
