a Pathway to Success

Tuesday, 16th June

Hi Year 3,

I hope that you are all well and keeping safe.  Hopefully you are managing to have a go at the angles and turns  work which we have been looking at.  As you have worked through this work, it should be getting easier!  From Thursday, we will be moving on to look at a new topic on money.


  *   Today for our SPaG work, I would like you to look at the present perfect form.  The present perfect form describes an action that has already taken place, but continues to happen, for example, "Mr Geeson has been the 100m running world champion for two years."  This shows that I was and still am the champion!

          This tense makes use of the words "has" and "have", as we looked at in class and although it can be                       confusing at first, it is something which we use when we talk and write without thinking about it.  Have a             go at the attached sheet and if you feel confident, start with sheet 2.   I have provided the PowerPoint to
           help you.


  *   We are going to finish our work on angles, by comparing angles.  We should now be pretty confident on what a right angle is (the L shape).  If we measured a right angle it would be 90 degrees.  An angle that is smaller than a right angle is called an acute angle.  The way I remember this is by thinking that something small can be called cute.  An angle that is bigger than a right angle is called an obtuse angle.  Take a look at the attached and start with the first sheet, looking carefully at the angles and shapes to see whether they are right angles, acute angles or obtuse angles.  The PowerPoint will let you have a go at this before starting your work.


  *   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.

Bye for now.

Mr G
