Thank you to the Outgoing Year 3s

The Year 3 team would just like to say an enormous thank you to all the children, siblings, parents, carers, grandparents and guardians of the outgoing Year 3 classes.  You have all been superstars.  We are in tricky times at the moment and you have shown great resilience throughout.  It has been great to have seen your work improve over the time in lockdown which is further evidence of your continued learning.  Totley Primary School is proud to have you as ambassadors for the school.

Thank you to you all and have a wonderful summer!

Transition Week home learning

Dear Parents and Carers,

Many of you will have received your child’s home learning pack for transition week in the post, and if you haven’t already, I know you’ll be eagerly waiting by the letter box!

If your child attends school in a bubble, they might have brought it home with them already. Also, children who are in school on a Monday or Tuesday will be given their packs in person.

For children who are attending school in the last week of term, there will be lots of time and support to complete the activities here at school. However, we still wanted you to have a copy of the activities so you could share in the experience and talk about it together at home.

We would really encourage you to share your home learning during transition week with your new child’s teacher/s. Some activities can be posted back to school in the envelope provided. Alternatively, sent a picture to them via email (new class teacher emails are included in the packs). Check out your new year group class blog for updates too!

Below are the packs for your information. We have tried (really hard!) to make sure the correct pack was posted to the correct child, but just in case one slipped through the net, here are the resources for you to access.

If you have any questions, or we can help in any way, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Friday Maths

Good morning Year 3 (soon to be Year 4s!)

Please see attached the Friday maths video about Parallel and Perpendicular lines.

The Last Day of Y5! (and Y5 Home Learning…)

Hi Y5!

It’s here! Your final day of Y5. Do you remember me telling you on your first day with me how fast Y5 will go?

Here are the final videos from me. I filmed the Big Fat Quiz of Y5 last night. I hope you have fun with it! If you can, why not play along with the family and have a bit of a quiz night? 🙂

I’ve also attached the newsletter from Mrs Croft. I had nothing to do with who she has put as a lockdown superstar this week, but the photo she has found is very dashing 😉

I want to give a big shout out to every single one of you. We have all had very different situations to cope with, and we have still engaged with a lot of our Home Learning. Some of us have been in the Hub from the very start of lockdown, and a lot of us haven’t stepped foot near school since March. You have all been fantastic, and I’m gutted we didn’t have the Summer term together as I’m sure we would have had a brilliant time.

I want to give a big shout out to parents as well! Many of you have juggled working from home or even still working during the crisis, and I cannot thank you enough for ensuring your children were happy and safe whilst trying to do as much as the Home Learning as you could. Thank you.

Every single one of you are fabulous and can’t wait to see you all in September.

Mr Cooper

Morning everyone!

What a windy few days! I’m trying to remember the last time we had a June and July that was this mild and breezy…

Well, it’s actually here. Your final week of Y5. Do you remember what I said on your very first day? It is going to fly by. It certainly has!

Here are your videos for today. Your Wider Curriculum video where we reflect on your time time in Y5 will be uploaded later as it is going to be a video with myself AND Mrs Croft! I’m going to attempt to record the zoom and then upload it to my YouTube channel. Fingers crossed!

*UPDATE* It worked! I managed to record a zoom with Mrs Croft and chat about our memories of Y5. It’s a bit long, whoops!
