Hello everyone! My inbox has been flooded again with lots of exciting pictures and information! Let’s have a look at what everyone has been getting up to.

Hi Mr Hannam,
It’s Sarah-Jane again! I have started listening to ‘foreverywhere’. So far I think it’s good,it has so much music in it. I liked the door bell sound. I have played my hit the button game again and have beat my score. I have also done some work from my pack which i’m enjoying.I like the picture of your dog, I have a dog too hes 10 years old. 
Bye for now from Sarah-Jane
Hi Sarah-Jane!
It’s great to hear that you’ve started listening to and enjoying an Audible story. I might have to give it a listen to myself 🙂 It’s also super to hear that you’re beating your previous scores on hit-the-button, keep it up! It’s lovely to see that your brother is helping you with your numeracy work on length. Did he help you write your prayer? I love seeing all your photos and I especially like the one of your dog with a party hat on 🙂
Hopefully see you soon!
Mr. Hannam
Victoria! It’s brilliant to see that you’re keeping yourself busy with the reading tasks from your homework pack. Also, I had no idea that you could play the ukulele, it sounds fantastic and it put a huge smile on my face. Keep up the super work! 😀

Karol! Awesome to hear from you during this time. I hear you’ve been really busy during your recent visit to Poland as well as during your time at home. It’s super to see that you decided to make your own Viking longship, it looks like it will be amazing when it’s finished! You also look to be having a good time out and about with family. Keep safe and I’ll hopefully see you soon.

Oskar! It’s brilliant to see that you’re keeping busy with your tricky word spellings. I’m also really proud to see that you’re still hard at work practicing your handwriting as your writing has really come on in the short time I’ve been your teacher. Keep it up! 🙂

Maciej! Hope you’re having a good time at home and keeping active. It’s great to see that you’ve started to create your advert for a Viking longship. Remember all those awesome adjectives for the power of 3 and rhetorical questions to get the reader thinking and really ‘sell’ your product! 🙂

Patryk! It’s super to see more of what you’ve been up to. You look to be really working hard on that handwriting and it’s great to see that you’ve still got a big smile on your face.

Maths challenge

Have a go at this challenge based on our learning around length and perimeter:


27.3.20 Updates!

I’ve had lots of emails from you all and it’s put a huge smile on my face. It’s brilliant to see everyone is keeping busy and staying safe.

Sarah-Jane! Great to hear from you again. It’s super to see you’re keeping fit with your brother (hope it wasn’t too competitive) and that you’ve still got a big smile on your face. Have you managed to listen to any of the Audible books yet or beat your record on hit-the-button maths?

Arina! It’s great to see you’re busy working on money in numeracy and your reading. Keep working on your handwriting so that when we’re back you’re ready for a handwriting pen 🙂


Victoria! Awesome to see you’re getting stuck into some numeracy work today. Keep up the great work. When you feel really confident have a go at adding two 3-digit numbers together such as 426 + 564 🙂

Maciej! Fantastic to see you’re working on your favourite subject. Can you measure any objects around your home? How about finding 3 items that when added together make 1m?

Patryk! Hard at work with his numeracy and reading. Keep working on the column method for both adding and subtracting. When you get really confident at adding have a go at adding three 2-digit numbers together such as 25 + 15 + 12.


Could you create your own prayer? Take some quiet time and write your own prayer, using the template below. Remember to email me with your prayers, it would be lovely to see your thoughts and words!

26.3.20 Milo’s birthday! 🙂

Today is my dog Milo’s birthday. He is 5 (not quite sure how many years that is in dog years!) and he really enjoyed me being at home to celebrate with him and take him on a birthday walk!

26.3.20 Healthy body, healthy mind

If you fancy keeping active at home, Joe Wicks is hosting a daily 9am workout to get the nation moving. All you have to do is tune into his Youtube channel. If is daily workout wasn’t enough for you, he has more workouts than you can shake a stick at. Give one a go today!

24.3.20 My first email back! 🙂

Dear Mr Hannam,
Thank you for the work you sent me. Today I have done some of my maths from my homework pack. I also did some RE work on Easter and my TT Rockstars and spelling shed. My mum has made us a timetable game which me and my brother have enjoyed playing.
Bye for now from Sarah-Jane.

Sarah-Jane! It’s great to see that you’re keeping yourself busy. I’m glad that you’re enjoying your homework pack and that you’ve managed to do some numeracy work with your brother. Keep it up! 🙂 To all of 3 Maple, if you are doing anything fun that you want to share with the class, email it to: admin.stcolumbas.bradford.sch.uk

Thinking of you all!



Hello 3 Maple!

I hope you’re all finding your homework packs useful and you’re all keeping yourselves busy! I know that I haven’t been your teacher for very long but I just wanted to say how incredibly proud I am to be working with each and every one of you!

I will be posting updates on this page weekly (at least) to help us all stay in touch and I will be posting pictures, videos and activities so please keep checking.

Have a go at this Maths problem based on our work on perimeter:

Whitney is measuring the perimeter of a square.
She says she only needs to measure one side of the square.
Do you agree? Explain your answer (“I agree/disagree because…”).
Are there any other shapes this might work for?

I would also really like you to stay in touch with me to let me know how you all are! You can forward things to admin.stcolumbas.bradford.sch.uk and let them know to pass your updates on to me. It would be great to see how you are all getting along with your homework packs too!

I hope to see you all very soon!

Mr. Hannam
