Dear parents and pupils,

We hope that you enjoyed last week’s work and it has kept you busy and entertained. The year 3 team are missing you all loads and we have been busy preparing some activities for you for this week.


We know that many of you have already taken up this opportunity but if not, there is still plenty of time to log into Scholastic Reading Library online. This allows you to access lots of different books on their website.  We would like you to try hard to login to this at least three times in the week.  We have sent an email of instructions to your grown ups and they can also read about it here.

Scholastic reading letter for parents

This week, in addition to your reading scheme book and Scholastic on line book, we would like you to try and read a set of instructions for something. This might be a recipe, or how to make or repair something. What do you notice about these types of texts? what kinds of sentences do they use? How do we know it is not a story?


Last week, you learned about nouns. This week, we would like to build upon what you have done by learning about adjectives. Watch the video to help you (please move the video timer to start at 2.50):


How many different adjectives can be used to describe Floppy the dog? Can you use more than one? What punctuation must you remember if you do use more than one?


In phonics, we have been looking at Phase 5a  This week, we would like the children to revise the  au, aw and ew sounds. These sites will help for phonics games:

Forest Phonics

Phonics frog

Phonics Galaxy


These words all feature the ‘ch’ spelling making a /k/ sound. These words often have roots from Greek.



This week, we would like to revisit persuasion. The children wrote adverts to persuade people to buy a snack called Tasteroids. This week, the global brand that is Bridge, Clarke and Dorman (BCD) have released a new fruit smoothie drink called Ecton Nectar. Can you create a new advertising poster using some of the features we learned about? Look at the poster to remind you:


We hope you liked the investigations that we posted last week. Why not try some of these?

Maths Skills:

We hope you enjoyed learning about estimating and rounding last week. This week, is a tricky challenge. Can you learn how to read and write Roman Numerals. Click on the links to find out how:

Parts of a flower

Can you find a flower to investigate? Remember to check with a grown up and wash your hands afterwards.  Draw and label what you notice.


Follow the link below to learn more about VE Day. This year is the 75th Anniversary of VE Day.

Can you write a 1st person account of what happened on the original VE Day?



Please think about VE day and create a scene of the celebrations after the war ended.  There were lots of street parties throughout the world. Here are some images of street parties from 1945.

Computers and on-line safety:

On-line safety  is something that we strongly promote at Ecton Brook. Why not try this challenge activity sheet:

Think you know – Online safety activities

Keeping active:

Try and do 30 minutes of something active a day. Remember, you can use these sites to help:

Joe Wicks Bodycoach Daily workouts

For something different, why not try some yoga?

Cosmic Yoga



If you would like some additional learning, BBC bitesize has also released daily lessons. This may be of use if you would like further activities;

We have been missing you all very much and we hope that you are keeping busy and active during this time. We have received a few messages asking if the homework needs to be handed in or marked by us. Whilst we would very much love to see what you have been doing, we are unable to collect the work in. However, if you would like to take photos to bring in when we return, we would love to see them!

Love from

Mr Bridge, Ms Clarke and Miss Dorman
