Hi 2 Willow! I hope you are all well and staying safe. I am missing you all a lot! I have put some Maths questions below for you, make sure you write down your working out so I can see how you have worked the answers out! I have also put another English task on for you. Keep up the great work 2 Willow!

English task

Can you write down a paragraph to describe Betsy today? Please use adjectives, noun phrases and conjunctions in your sentences. Use your imagination to include adventures she might have been on!


Here is an example sentence for you:

Today Betsy is looking a bit tired because she has been for a long, energetic run with Miss Wolanski.

Message from Daniel!

Today my mum gave me some tasks with money. All family played Ludo game and we make new rules when we are playing board games. The winner can choose the next game he (she) wants to play the next time. Yesterday I was the winner in Jenga game, so my choice was Ludo. Today dad was the winner and his choice is the Labyrinth. We have fun every day.

Keep the smiles coming 2 Willow!!

Well done again Alexis- great work!

Alexis is doing her Maths again and going to do some more phonics work.

Wednesday 1st April

Happy April 2 Willow!

I hope you are all keeping safe and drinking lots of water. It’s so lovely to see so many children sending their pictures in.

Last week I introduced you to my dog Alfie. Alfie loved all the work that you did and was so happy that you helped him do those maths calculations. Alfie has a little sister and her name is Bella. Bella is also a Jack Russell and is 8 years old. Bella loves to go on long walks and sleep in her comfy bed! Here is a picture of Bella and Alfie when Bella was a puppy.

Yesterday, Bella decided to write a diary entry about what she did yesterday.

Can you write a diary entry about what you did yesterday? Remember you need to talk about your feelings and what happened during the day. Don’t forget to start with Dear Diary and sign off at the end. Use Bella’s entry from yesterday to help you.

Take care and stay safe.

Miss Jackson

Good Morning 2 Willow!! I hope that you are all okay and are doing your work packs. I can see that some children are doing lots of activities whilst at home! I have been spending lots of time with my dog, Alfie. He is a Jack Russell and is 10 years old, which means he is older than all of you!

Over the past couple of days we have been using our time outside to go on walks around the local area, Alfie has been spotting lots of different animals and creatures on our walks and he wants to add up all of the animals that we saw on each day. Can you help Alfie?

On Sunday, Alfie saw 9 spiders and 12 cats. How many creatures did he see in total?

On Monday, Alfie saw 10 owls and 15 squirrels. How many creatures did he see in total?

On Tuesday, Alfie saw 16 woodlice and 11 fox cubs. How many creatures did he see in total?

On Wednesday, Alfie saw  5 hedgehogs, 3 mice and 4 dragonflies. How many creatures did he see in total?

In total, how many creatures did Alfie see on Sunday and Monday.

In total, how many creatures did Alfie seen on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Can you show this information in a tally chart?

Challenge!- How many creatures did Alfie see across all 4 days?


Miss you all lots, I can’t wait to hear all about what you have been up to!

Take care,

Miss Jackson

Friday 20th March- A prayer for all during this time.

Keep us, good Lord,

under the shadow of your Mercy

in this time of uncertainty.

Sustain and support the anxious and fearful

and lift up all who are brought low,

that we may rejoice in your comfort

knowing that nothing can separate us from your love.

In Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Betsy the Bunny needs your help 2 Willow!!

Thursday 19th March– Today I went outside with Betsy and she has become SO confused! She was looking at these ‘things’ on the ground and she wasn’t sure what they were. She was then asking me LOADS of questions so I thought the best people to ask to help would be my good friends in 2 Willow! These are the questions she has for you. Please write the answers you have into your exercise books at home or remember you can send in your responses to the admin email address- admin@stcolumbas.bradford.sch.uk

Betsy’s first set of questions!

  1. What type of flower is here? Can you name the different parts of it and what each part is used for?
  2. There are 25 flowers and Betsy wanted to put them into 5 groups but she wants to know, how many would be in each group? She then asked me- what would the division number sentence be for this? What would the multiplicaton number sentence be for this?
  3. Could you write an adventure story, all about what you think Betsy has been up to outside?






Dear parents/carers,

I will be updating this page with any additional tasks I would like the children to complete throughout the coming weeks, to further support their learning. I will also be updating the page with pictures of any events myself and the Class Bunny ‘Betsy’ take part in and I will also be taking it as an opportunity to stay in contact with the children. Children from 2 Willow are welcome to send pictures to our school admin email address with similar pictures of any activities they have taken part in during this time period and I will put them onto this page so that all of the children in our class can keep up to date with each other. The email address is below:


Watch out for Betsy the Bunny because she might set you special tasks and secret investigations!! 

I am looking forward to hearing from the 2 Willow children.

Keep safe and keep smiling! 🙂

From Miss Wolanski.
