Welcome to Class 2 Online Learning Area.
Each week I will upload a document that will give you some ideas for what you could do with your child at home. Please could you share the news with other parents so everyone knows there is information here to help. If you need to contact me directly with a question or query about your child's learning you can email me on our new class email address: CornwoodClass2@moorsway.devon.sch.uk This can also be used by the children to send me information about what they have been doing and learning about. I look forward to hearing from you all!
This week our learning topic is....Knights, Castles and Fairy Tales!
I cannot believe it is the last week of term already in the oddest year I have ever experienced in my teaching career! I'm sad that I have not seen some of you back at school this term but look forward to September where we will have the Year 2's joining us.
Have a great summer - keep those pictures coming via the class email address as they always make me smile.
Take care of yourselves and each other,
Week beginning 6th July 2020
This week the theme is robots!
I hope you are all well and looking forward to the summer holidays! Only 2 weeks to go...!
Hello again! I hope you are all well and have enjoyed the nice weather. I can't believe we are at the end of June already. The challenge this week is to become a palaeontologist and learn all you can about the dinosaurs and how we know about them even though they are extinct. Which is your favourite dinosaur? Which is the fastest...the biggest...the scariest? Don't forget to keep sending pictures of anything you have done at home...I love seeing them.
Take care, stay safe
Hello again! I hope you are all well and have enjoyed learning more about farming. This week we would like you to learn some more about yourselves. What makes your body work? What does your heart do? How many bones have you got and what are they called? What is the weirdest or grossest fact about the human body you can find?!
This is our last week on time and I hope by now those of you who have your own watch can read it for yourselves and you will be able to tell me when it is breaktime in September!
Enjoy the body activities and send me some photos of anything you create.
Hello again! Hope you are all well. What a funny week it's been weather wise. Hopefully all the rain has helped the farmers with their crops. I know it has helped my garden...I've harvested lots of raspberries, rhubarb and redcurrants this week. This is our topic this week...Farming. What do you already know about farming? Do you live on a farm or know anybody that does? What do you grow in your garden that you can harvest and eat?
Let me know! Can't wait to hear from you all and see pictures of what you've been up to.
Week beginning 8th June 2020
I hope you are all well and enjoyed learning about Space last week. This week we are going to continue the adventurer theme and dive deep into the oceans to find out more about the animals that live there. Which is the deadliest animal in the sea? Which is the cleverest? Who discovered and named the oceans? Can you find out?
Although I am based at the Erme for the next few weeks, I will continue to upload activities for you to choose on our class page and I am still on the end of the Class email address: (CornwoodClass2@moorsway.devon.sch.uk) if you need to ask me anything. Please keep the emails and photos coming as I love to hear what you are all up to.
Stay safe, look after each other.
Week beginning 1st June 2020
Hello and welcome back. I hope you are all well and have enjoyed a rest during the half term. This week we are boldly going into space! So put on you space suit and join me as we learning some fascinating facts about the planets and other parts of our solar system.
Which ever projects you choose to do I would love to see some pictures of the finished results! Please send them to the class email address.
Thank you to all who joined me on the class zoom call. It was fabulous to see all your smiling faces.
Take care, stay safe
Week beginning 18th May 2020
I hope you are all well and enjoyed completing some of the super-hero activities set last week. This week we would like you to dive deeply into the jungle to become explorers! What can you learn about the animals that live there? The plants that grow there? Where on the planet the jungle is found?
Can't wait to see what you come up with!
If you need any help you can contact me using the class email address above.
For this weeks learning topic you will need to get out your stretchy tights and put on your shiny cape and become a super hero for the week. We love to watch super hero films and now its your turn to be one. You will need to design your own costume and think about what super power you would like to have. Would you like to be able to run as fast as Flash? Fly like Superman? Or be super strong like Hulk? But you might also want to do some activities about our real super heroes...the ones that actually exist like our amazing doctors, nurses, carers, firemen, paramedics and policemen. They might not be able to fly but they have their own super powers and are just as amazing (or more so!) as the characters we see in the movies! Good luck and enjoy!
Remember if you need to contact me about anything the class email address is: CornwoodClass2@moorsway.devon.sch.uk
Please keep sending photos and updates. They are great to read.

Thank you to all those families who have continued to send me emails to show me what the children have been up to. It's just good to see you are all fit and well as I miss you all so much.

Times Table Rockstars!
Well done to Bertie, Elijah, Elias, Conrad and James who have all been on TTRS in the last week and earned themselves some more gold coins towards personalising their avatar. Remember you can dress and redesign your avatars background once you have earned enough coins. I've just bought my avatar pink hair! So cool! :-D
