Virtual Sports Week

Hi everybody,


The week commencing 22nd June would have been our school sports week. We would have completed many challenges throughout the week, had some extra PE lessons doing some unusual sports and competed for our house teams on sports day. Unfortunately, our plans have had to change, but we can still celebrate a week of sport at home or in our bubbles at school.

Attitudes to Sport

One of the projects you can have a go at, is to think about famous sports people from around the world and how they have demonstrated our attitudes to learning to help them succeed. Have a look at the PowerPoint presentation link below to help you create either a factfile, PowerPoint or a poster about a sports person.

PE and keeping active at home

Hi Everybody!

Hopefully many of you have already seen, every Monday to Friday from 9am Joe Wicks is delivering free PE lessons on his YouTube channel. This morning’s session was great, let me know if you joined in! I put my Totley PE kit on this morning and took part (I didn’t look like this at the end!). Let’s see how many children, parents and adults we can get taking part representing the fantastic Totley Primary School!

If you are joining in with any of the sessions over the next few weeks, ask an adult to take a picture and send it by email to your class teacher, me or Mr Paxman and we will share as many as we can!

Also if you would like any more free PE activities to do at home, we have managed to get free online PE lessons through ‘realPE’.

Stanage Charity Dance-a-thon!

For Stanage’s charity (Bluebell Wood Hospice), the House Captains decided to do a sponsored Dance-a-thon as a whole school! Following Mr Cooper’s moves, the whole school took part in an hour-long dance for charity. It looked incredible dancing to artist including the Spice Girls, Elvis Presley and S Club 7!

Thank you to everyone who has already brought in sponsor money for the dance-a-thon. If you haven’t yet brought it in, feel free to bring it to the front office by next Monday, so we can announce a grand total next week!

PS don’t forget to guess the teachers in the ‘Totley Toddlers’ competition…

Virtual Velodrome and Mile a Day!

We’ve had a very busy afternoon back after the Easter break.

Due to our hard work with the BikeIt crew, we had a ‘Virtual Velodrome’ experience to see who could do the fastest lap! It made us realise how incredible the athletes are who compete in these competitions. The top times were all 23 seconds around the 200m track. Mr Paxman and Mr Cooper also had a go!

After this, we also completed our first mile run of the term. As a lot of you might already know, Totley Primary are taking part in ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ to raise money for playground and sports equipment. If each child (and staff member) runs a mile for the whole summer term, we would have ran around the world as a school!

Swing low, sweet chariot

This half term Y6 have been learning the rules and techniques of tag rugby. We have perfected the art of carrying the ball, how to twist and weave away from dangerous defenders, how to move effectively as a team and how to outwit our opponents. We are expecting to receive a call from England head coach, Eddie Jones at anytime 🙂


Cross Country Season Finale

Here is Rosie’s final race report of the Cross Country season. A massive thank you to her for all of the entertaining articles for the website and to her mum, Rachel, for helping us to establish a cross country team at Totley Primary this season. They have been absolute stars and we are very grateful for all their efforts!

Graves Park was the venue for the Sheffield Primary schools cross country championships on Saturday 27 February. It followed a series of seven fantastic races that took place all across the city from Bradfield to Brunswick. This was the last race in the season and once again Totley’s runners were out in force to take on the challenging and technical course. Conditions were good with no wind or rain (for a change!). The course was slightly longer than in previous races, with just one lap, which started and finished in front of Graves Park pavilion.

Very well done to Daniel Bates in Y4 who was a first time runner for Team Totley at the weekend. Here are the rest of the results:

Boys Y4 race:

Luke Craine  – 38

Daniel Bates – 46

Girls Y5/6 race:

Sophie Taylor – 63

Boys Y5/6 race:

Douggie Nuttall – 4

Olly Wynne – 127

Thank you to all the children who have taken part in these races and to the parents for standing in the cold, cheering them on! Good luck to Sophie, Douggie, Freddie and Greg as they leave Totley Primary and hopefully continue running, this time in the secondary schools cross country series.

We hope to welcome back the rest of the team in September as well as encourage some new recruits too!

Cross Country Team’s First Race!

Totley Primary’s team of runners (Luke Craine Y4, Ollie Wynn Y5, Sophie Taylor Y6, Freddie Cressey Y6 and Douggie Nuttall Y6) did the school proud on Saturday 7th of November in their first run in the Sheffield Primary Schools Cross Country Race Series. The venue of the run was Limpsfield School and it was typical cross-country weather, pouring it down with rain but everyone had a great time.

The course they were running was very difficult starting with a flat strait then a turn down on to a steep hill. The path they were following sometimes got a bit uneven and slippery which resulted in a lot of muddy children!!! At the end was a hugely testing hill that challenged even the strongest runners, but everyone did their very best! Most of the team, if they weren’t covered in mud were soaking wet!! Our team spirit really showed today, especially in our Y5/6 boys’ race where Freddie (Y6) stayed behind to help Ollie (Y5) at the start of the race.

Despite a few nerves the team did amazing and our high spirits shone through even if the sun didn’t. We are all looking forward to the next race at Bradfield on Saturday 27th November. WELL DONE TEAM TOTLEY!!!!
