a Pathway to Success

Thursday, 25th June

Hello Year 3,

I hope everybody is well and getting plenty of opportunity to enjoy the nice weather that we are having again!


  *   Today you have a choice for your writing.  If you have not done so yet, please have a go at the poetry work from the last two weeks (Ocean of Dreams from 11th June or Racetrack of Champions from 18th June).  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 continuing to look at adding money, this time interpreting money problems and looking at different ways of making the same amount.  This should again be fairly straightforward. Most of you should be able to start from sheet 2. The PowerPoint is included should you need this.


  *   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).

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.

You may also want to look at a BBC Bitesize maths game called, "Guardians:  Defenders of Mathematica".  This game is set in a make believe world which you navigate by using either mental or written maths in different topic areas.

Bye for now.

Mr G
