Cross Country Update

Our fabulous cross country squad have been very busy with training runs and races these last few weeks.  In spite of some very chilly and muddy conditions, they have shown great resilience and given plenty of rosey-cheeked smiles as they have given their all. Well done!

Burbage lead Children in Need 80s Rock Fest

Mullets haircuts, leg warmers, shoulder pads and neon colours were all present and correct today as we went back in time to the 80s and dressed up to mark Children in Need Day. This year also had a classic rock twist, to tie in with this evening’s legendary PTA Rock Night. After a week of selling “Totley Primary Rocks” wrist bands and through doing 80s rock-themed (and Pudsey-based) lessons, we really got into the spirit of the day.

The highlight of the day (apart from Mr Flevill’s Freddie Mercury-inspired outfit!) was undoubtedly the afternoon’s rock concert as the brilliant PTA band, Totley Crue gave the children a flavour of their set list for the evening concert. The children clapped, cheered and danced along to the tunes in true 80s style – there was even a little gentle headbanging!

All in all, the day was a great success and over £300 has been raised for the Children In Need charity. Well done to all who supported and good luck to the band for tonight. May the gods of rock be looking down favourably upon you all!


Y1s Magic Topic!

This week in Y1 we have started our new magical topic…

Y1 Murphys will be thinking about “What if you had a letter from Hogwarts?” and Y1 Potters have asked “Is magic real?”

We started off our topic with a visit from the fantastic Professor Shell! He dazzled us with his delightful display of magic – along with his furry friend Peter Rabbit! The children had a great time and were totally absorbed in his show. We will be learning some tricks throughout the topic and are hoping to share these with you at the end of the term.


Phase 2 Expansion – Architect’s Flyaround

Our very clever architect Derek Statham has created this 3D visualisation of the next stage of our proposed expansion.

The planning consultation closed on Friday 13th October and we will make you aware of any decisions from the planning committee as soon as we are informed.

Cross Country Autumn Update

The first Sheffield Federation of School Sport Schools (SFSS) Primary cross country race of the season was held at Norfolk Park on a mild and sunny Saturday in September. This was the team’s first outing in our new cross country t-shirts, which were very kindly paid for by the PTA. As you can see they are perfect for sport and look fantastic, so a huge thanks to the PTA!

It has been absolutely brilliant to have lots of first-timers join in the fun this year. Erin, Flo, Betsy, Felix and Arthur were amongst our new runners. The Y5/6 boys even managed to make up two teams, with 8 runners turning up to represent the school.

The second cross country race took place on 14 October at Parkwood Springs. A huge well done to all of our runners as this was a long, tough course with a couple of good climbs. The results are below:

Y4 Girls
Betsy 29
Flo 58

Y4 Boys
Arthur 143

Y5/6 Girls
Hattie 23
Erin 80
Lily 133

Y5/6 Boys
Daniel B 16 (PB!)

From Miss Goodbody and Mr Flevill

Those shoes were made for walking…

Following our BikeIt day on Tuesday, we celebrated our very first Funky Shoes Friday today as children and parents put on their fanciest footwear and walked as much of the school journey as they could. Spangly wellies, flashing soles, luminous laces and glittery stickers galore were all on show. Thank you to everyone for getting into the spirit and supporting our active travel campaign to reduce congestion around the local roads. There were noticeably fewer cars at the bottom of the drive today and lots of smiles on faces so please keep walking!!

Bike It Bonanza!

We celebrated our most successful ever BikeIt breakfast today as an incredible 67 children cycled to school, while 39 came on their scooters! The promise of a free breakfast tempted many to get on two wheels this morning and the hall was packed with people enjoying toast, juice and crumpets before school began. Well done to our new Bike It crew, who wore their Sustrans t-shirts with pride and helped the event to run smoothly.

Sustrans officers, Amy and Paula then began the huge task of carrying out basic safety checks on everyone’s’ bikes and making tweaks to tyres and brakes where needed. A massive thank you to them – it took them all day!!

Keep your eye out for more Active Travel events and awards coming up soon – the Golden Lock competition is about to start and just wait ’til you hear about October’s BikeIt frenzy…

The Totley Show

It was an absolute pleasure to hold the 32nd annual Totley Show at our school again this year. It was a fantastic event and great to see that many of our school children had entered varied pieces. The Totley Show ambassadors, Evie and Archie, made us proud. What a great afternoon!

Sponsored fitness circuit!

As our Sports week hook, everyone from FS2 to year 5 took part in a sponsored fitness circuit. James Kirton- former UK Olympic swimmer- led the sessions.

He shared his experiences of how he got into swimming during assembly. His message of giving 100% in everything you do, even the things you don’t like, was very well received!
