Welcome to Class 3's Home Learning Area!
Please check this page regularly as I will update the page with new suggestions for your home learning each week, as well as general updates. Remember to check out our Moorsway Federation Facebook page which will include fun ideas to fill your day. It is also a space where all of our pupils can share and celebrate their home learning achievements.
I will upload learning suggestions for each subject, although these subjects may change from week to week. Please do not worry about fitting everything in each day. Spread the activities throughout the week and just do what you can! We all have access to different things dependent on where we are completing our learning, so feel free to present or complete your learning in whatever way possible. The children were given a home learning book to help with this.
I will be updating links and resources as well as the weekly learning ideas. Where possible, I will link home learning to what we would have been doing in school.
Keep smiling, stay safe and make the most of this time!
Thank you for all your emails this week, it has been wonderful to hear from you. I am impressed by the determination you all still have to do the home learning and in working towards your own goals and personal achievements. You should be very proud of yourselves! We now only have two weeks to go until we reach the summer holidays.
This week the theme is robots! I will look forward to seeing what you come up with. I have also attached the Year 5 and Year 6 PowerPoints. Remember that the most important thing is that the learning fits around your family routine and make sure to pick the activities you will enjoy most!
If you need anything, have a question, or just want to say hello, please email me on CornwoodClass3@moorsway.devon.sch.uk and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
I hope you have all had a lovely week and made the most of the sunshine. In school we learnt lots about different aspects of the human body; it was very interesting. Did you manage to find out some interesting things about the human body too?
This week the home learning theme is dinosaurs! You will also find the Year 5 and Year 6 PowerPoints attached below. If you need anything please email me via CornwoodClass3@moorsway.devon.sch.uk
Keep up the fantastic work. You are all doing great!
I hope you have all had a lovely week even though the weather as been dreadful. Bubble 2 went out for forest school on Thursday afternoon and we got soaked through! I am very much looking forward the heatwave that is forecast for this week, hopefully that means you will all be able to get out and do some exciting outdoor activities.
This week the home learning theme is the human body. I can't wait to see what you all get up to and find out! I have also attached the Year 5 and Year 6 PowerPoints below. As always just do what fits around you and your family. If you need me or would like to share what you have been doing with me please email CornwoodClass3@moorsway.devon.sch.uk
You have all been doing such an incredible job of the home learning. It is not always easy learning from home and you should be very proud of all the things you are achieving during this time!
Keep smiling and stay safe,
Hello everyone, I hope you have all had a lovely week. I have been very busy in school with the Year 6s. Although, it is nice to be back it still seems very strange without all of you there and we are most certainly missing you!
I have attached the home learning below and our theme for the week is farming. We chose this as a federation because many of you have experienced helping on a farm or have farm animals at home. There is also a Year 5 PowerPoint and a Year 6 PowerPoint to have a go at. Remember to just do what you can, learning at home is very different to learning in school, so don't put too much pressure on yourself. The most important thing is that you are doing what suits you and your family.
Have a lovely week, stay safe and keep smiling!
I hope you have all had a lovely week and have managed to get back into the swing of things with the home learning. Sadly the weather hasn't permitted much outdoor activity this week but I still managed to go for some walks and I have been busy preparing to return to school. I am looking forward to seeing those of you who are coming back!
For those of you who are learning from home, please remember that you can still contact me by emailing the class email address. Although I will be in school, I will still be checking them regularly and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I would still like to hear about all the wonderful things you have been doing!
This week the theme is oceans and I can't wait to see what you decide to work on. I have also attached the Year 5 and Year 6 PowerPoints. Remember that for the home learning you just need to pick what you can complete and will enjoy doing. There is no pressure to complete it all, as it needs to fit around you and your family.
Stay safe and keep smiling
Welcome back to home learning everyone! I hope that you've all had a wonderful half term in the glorious sunshine. I have certainly enjoyed my week: enjoying lots of walks, painting the fence, watching the sky for the ISS and SpaceX rocket.
We are now entering the final term of the year and I don't know about you but I cannot believe how fast this school year has gone. This is now a time when some of you may receive transition tasks to complete from your secondary school. If there is anything I can do to help with this, please do send me an email.
The theme for the home learning this week is Space, which is very appropriate after the rocket launch this week! I am sure many of you will enjoy this theme (I think it is my favourite so far). I have also attached the PowerPoints for Year 5 and Year 6 below. As always, just do what you can! I will be busy in school this week getting ready for some of you to return on the 8th, but I will still be checking my emails, so please email me if you have any questions or want to send me an update! Your updates make my day.
Stay safe and keep smiling!
This week was an especially memorable week of lock down for me. Mainly because I got to see and speak to so many of you again! I hope you all enjoyed the zoom meet up as much as I did. I was glad that so many of you could attend it.
Now give yourselves a pat on the back because you have made it to half term! You have all done such amazing work this term whether it be the time you spent on home learning or all of the other wonderful activities you have been up to. As it is half term, there will be no home learning set this week. Take the time to relax, refresh and enjoy yourselves. I have no doubt that you will come up with some interesting things to do. I'm not quite sure what I will be doing yet but I have plenty of inspiration from all the updates you have sent me (I am quite fond of the trampoline sword fight idea). I will let you know what I get up to with another update next week.
I hope you all have a fantastic half term. Remember to stay safe and make the most of this strange time!
I hope you have all had a great week. This week I have been busy with lots of video calls with friends and family. It has been lovely to connect with people that I haven't spoken to in a while. What inventive ways have you all come up with to keep in touch with your friends and family? I have continued with the hill sprints this week but the time hasn't come down too much, so I've been challenging myself to do more!
This week I have had some lovely emails sharing some of your achievements. Well done Seb for your great research on Aryton Senna and Lowyn for your research on superhero animals. They were both very interesting and I enjoy getting to learn something new because of your hard work! You are all doing great on TT Rockstars, so far we have had Mnene, Edmund and Eliza on top of the leader board. I'll look forward to seeing who it will be next week!
I am so pleased that so many of you will be joining our online class meetup! If you haven't seen already, everyone has been sent an email with the information. Please make sure that you reply to say that you want to join in! As the session is only 30 minutes, it would be nice if everyone had an idea of something they wanted to share during the meet up. This way we can make sure that each person has a short amount of time to let everyone else know what they've been up to! I am looking forward to seeing you all again.
The home learning for this week is all about the jungle! I know that many of you share a love of animals, so you should be in your element with this topic. I have also uploaded the Year 5 and Year 6 Maths, SPaG and reading PowerPoints for you to complete. As always, if you have any questions about the home learning or would like to share what you have been up to, please email me via CornwoodClass3@moorsway.devon.sch.uk
Keep smiling and stay safe,
I hope you have all had a lovely week and have been enjoying the sunshine. I have done lots of walking this week and even started working towards a new fitness goal! I have been doing hill sprints up the hill behind my home. My aim is to beat my original time of 16.35 seconds, so far I have it down to 15.66, which means lots more practise to go! I hope you are all still finding things you want to achieve and grabbing the opportunity to try them. From the emails I have recieved from you, it appears that you are all still aiming high and making incredible achievements!
I have had some wonderful emails this week and thought it would be nice to share some of our class achievements each week. Well done to Freddie for your lovely VE day poem and medal, Rohan has built his own desk, George has been researching his great grandfather, Eliza has climbed Penn Beacon and Seb has raised over £1600 for St Luke's! You are all doing a smashing job on TT Rockstars too. I am very proud of all of you.
This would have been a very full on week in school, particularly for the Year 6's, as it would have been SATs week. I came across this poem today and would like to share it with you -
To all our Year 6's,
As SATs week arrives it is not quite the same,
The tests that were printed this year never came,
The displays all still up; walls full of Maths rules,
But Year 6 is very different, at present, in schools.
For some, happiness, lots of relief,
For others a sigh of pure disbelief,
That you worked really hard in advance of this week,
Expected and Greater Depth marks you did seek.
Algebra, fractions, the times table drills,
Inference, retrieval, in-depth reading skills,
Past present, progressive and all the SPaG terms,
You've practised and mastered them all over the years.
Fear not though, the SATs, yes, won't happen this term
But remember tests don't measure everything you learn,
Primary subjects are varied; you've always tried your best,
And many of those skills that you've gained can't be defined by a test.
So, here at Cornwood you've made us so proud,
We sit here with pride and we shout this out loud,
"Year 6 you amaze us, you've come incredibly far . . .
And we don't need a test to see how amazing you are!"
This week, the home learning suggestions are based around the theme of superheroes! I have also uploaded the Year 5 and Year 6 PowerPoints. Remember if you get stuck on something, want to learn about something in particular but don't know where to start or want to share something you are proud of with me, please email CornwoodClass3@moorsway.devon.sch.uk
Stay safe and keep smiling,
And just like that we're in May! I cannot believe where the time has gone. It makes me think back to September when we started the year and how far you have all come since then. I have been enjoying receiving your emails, photos and videos. I wanted to remind you all of how proud you should be of your home learning and how you have adapted to this 'new normal'. You all never fail to amaze me! Please keep sending your updates and questions my way via CornwoodClass3@moorsway.devon.sch.uk
I have been very determined not to let the bad weather keep me from getting out this week. On Thursday, I went for a long walk in what soon turned into a torrential downpour. I quite enjoyed the rain, as it was refreshing, but what came after was quite something . . . a double rainbow! Unfortunately, I found neither pots of gold, nevertheless it did bring a smile to my face. I hope you have all managed to get outside at some points during the week too.
This week, the theme for the home learning is sports. You may also notice that some PE learning ideas have been added to help you keep fit at home. I have also uploaded the Year 5 and Year 6 PowerPoints which have 5 maths, grammar and reading lessons on. As always please just do what you can and pick the activities you will enjoy doing.
I have also posted two extra links for you to check out:
Reading Online Library - Renaissance Learning have made access to their e-book library free for children at home. You can access these books on a tablet or laptop and they have over 6000 books to choose from, so that should keep you keen readers entertained! Here is the link: https://readon.myon.co.uk/
Our VE Day competition - If you want to enter, all you need to do is look at the ideas on the slides, pick one to complete and send it to me by Thursday 7th May. All the entries will be compiled into a video to celebrate VE day. The video will be shared with you and winners announced on Friday 8th May. You will be able to see this via the Moorsway Federation Facebook page and the Moorsway newsletter (see PowerPoint below).
That's all from me this week. Keep up the great work and stay safe!
I hope you have all had a great week. My week started with exploring the golf course, I discovered: a pond, historical arch and some rabbits. Isolation has meant that I needed to learn some new skills, including cutting my fiance's hair! I also spent a few nights staying up in search of the Starlink satellites which was rather exciting. However, the thing that made my week even better was receiving emails and photos from you lot! I have loved hearing about what you have all been up to and it makes me realise how much I miss being in school with you all. If you have any questions or want to share what you have been up to with me, please email: CornwoodClass3@moorsway.devon.sch.uk
You are all doing very well on TT Rockstars and this week Mnene is still the one to beat for Cornwood Year 4/5/6. Your pirate work has been fantastic this week and 'shiver me timbers' it looks like you really got stuck into the pirate theme.
This week, our theme is mythical creatures! Start thinking about centaurs, unicorns, dragons, mermaids, fairies and many more. I have also uploaded the Year 5 and Year 6 PowerPoints for you to have a go at. As always, just do what you can and pick activities that you will enjoy doing.
Stay safe and keep finding more wonderful activities to do.
There is now an email address specifically for our class. If you have any questions about the home learning or want to share anything you have been doing (school or non-school related) with me then please email: CornwoodClass3@moorsway.devon.sch.uk
I hope you have been enjoying this beautiful weather. I have been continuing to use long walks as my daily exercise and have been exploring places close to home that I am unfamiliar with. I am lucky to live close to a golf course, which has just been opened up to the public for walking, so I cannot wait to explore that more during my walks this week! I have been baking (as per usual), this week consisted of gooey double chocolate cookies and an iced sponge. Yum!
It has been lovely to see your photos and what you have been up to this week. Rohan that cake looks delicious and Edmund I can see that you have worked hard on painting those spitfires. Well done to all of you for working so hard on TT Rockstars - 6 of you are over 20,000 coins, which is fantastic! Mnene is currently in the lead with over 50,000. Every week the federation newsletter will name the Year 4/5/6 leader for our school, so I wonder who it will be next week. Keep up the great work!
This week, I have uploaded the learning suggestions, which are all about pirates, arrrrr mateys! I have also uploaded the maths, reading and spelling PowerPoints for Year 5 and Year 6. As always, please just do what you can.
Stay safe and keep smiling!
I hope you have all had an amazing couple weeks holiday spending the time making memories and having fun! I have been busy decorating and spring cleaning. As per usual I have spent a lot of time baking and cooking too and of course eating my way through some Easter eggs! I have been going for walks and doing a lot of Just Dance to keep active. I hope you have all found ways to keep moving and stay healthy too!
Tomorrow is when we were supposed to be returning to school and I find it quite strange that I won't get to see you all or hear about the amazing things you have been up to! I would love to know what you have been doing, so if you have an opportunity to share your activities on the Moorsway Facebook page or send it in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for me to see, it would make my day!
Going forward the home learning will appear in the same format each week. I will upload a PowerPoint that will have a short maths, SPaG and reading activity for each day. I understand that learning at home is very different to learning at school, so these will be short tasks that revise things we have covered so far this school year.
I will also upload a Word document that will have activity ideas for English, Science, Topic, (History, Geography and RE) and Art/DT. Each subject will have 5 activity suggestions and you may attempt these however you like. You may decide to do 5 each day, you might decide to do 2 from one subject and 3 from another in that week - it is completely up to you! You can choose which activities, when you do them or whether you do some of them at all.
Even though we are back to term-time and our home learning, it is still vital that you have time to do things for yourself. Activities you find fun an time to relax are equally important for staying happy and healthy!
Stay safe and look after yourselves!
Well done everyone - we have made it to the end of the term! I want to congratulate all of you for your hard work this term. This goes for both the work you have done in school and your home learning over the past week.
I have really enjoyed seeing your posts on the Moorsway Federation Facebook page. It certainly looks like you have been busy making the most out of this situation. I was thrilled to see how many of you have engaged with TT Rockstars this week. You are all doing incredibly well and are clearly motivated to challenge your times tables knowledge -keep it going!
As it is the Easter holidays, it is time for a break. That means no homework or learning tasks are set for you to complete. Nevertheless, for a bit of fun, I would like to challenge you to an Easter-themed task.
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to create the best Easter bonnet!
1. You don't have to use a hat- it just has to be some kind of head dress.
2. Use whatever you can find, I want to see the most bizarre bonnets you can create.
3. Post a picture of yourself wearing the bonnet on the Moorsway Federation Facebook Page. Lets spread some cheer and share something we can laugh about!
Keep sharing all the amazing things you are doing on the Facebook page because they make my day!
Have a wonderful Easter.
I hope you are enjoying the weekend and making the most of this lovely sunshine! I have spent my time using up some old bananas to make banana choc-chip muffins and going for walks with my family (mainly to counteract the cake eating).
This week, I have uploaded all general links to get your home learning started. The weekly learning ideas include reading, spellings, grammar, writing, maths, science, history and PE. You will need to open the document below to view the ideas.
Continue to challenge yourselves and take as much pride in your home learning as do in your school learning. Have a great week and I will be back with more home learning suggestions after the Easter holidays!
Although the situation surrounding SATs has now changed, I am aware that some of you still wanted to challenge yourself and attempt some SATs papers. If you would still like to do this, follow the link below and complete the 2018 papers.
The site has the full papers and mark schemes available for maths, reading and SPaG.
Welcome to Class 3!
