Summer activity pack

Here are activity packs for over the Summer Holidays. 

(You might already have a paper copy of this, which your child will have brought home with their work books.)

Dear Parents/Carers,

Here is a pack of activities you might find helpful over the summer break. We know that for some families, home learning has been helpful to give the day some structure and routine while parents work from home. Also, we want children to know that, even though it is the summer holidays, we are still thinking about them and want them to know they are still part of the Totley Primary School community.

The first part of the pack is maths and English worksheets with answers. This could help keep children’s knowledge and skills fresh for September. However, there is no expectation that children must complete them and your child will not be ‘behind’ if they don’t. Feedback from some families has shown us how home learning like this has helped give structure and focus, as well as a sense of achievement for their children. If you feel this is the right thing for your child, then the resources are there to help.

The second part of the pack is to help continue the sense of community over the summer holiday. Firstly, as a school, we are aiming to read 1,000 books! Please Tweet or email photos either of your child holding each book they read over the summer, or a photo of the cover of the book. We will keep track of how many books have been read and celebrate our achievement in September. To reach our target (or even smash it!), we need everyone to do their part by reading and sharing what they read. Also, we’ve given 6 ideas for things you could do together over the holiday. If you want to share the outcomes of your den building, cooking, art, history or geography, please do so using the Twitter # on each activity, or by emailing photos to

We are really looking forward to welcoming everyone back to school in September. It has been an       extraordinary time, but the strength of the Totley Primary School community is as strong as ever.

Best wishes, The Totley Team x

Welcome to Year Two Blyton

Hello and welcome to Year Two Blyton!

Thank you so much for all your lovely letters – we have really enjoyed reading them and are so impressed with your handwriting and spelling. You have asked lots of great questions. Here are a few answers to questions that many of you were interested in. We will also spend lots of time in the first few days getting to know each other, the classroom. Year Two routines and making our class rules.

What is year  Two like?
It is very similar to Year One-although we teach the whole class all at the same time and there is no choose time. You do Math, English, Guided Reading, PE, Science and Topics (Geography, History, Art, D&T etc). Our first Topic is going to be all about exploring our world.
Where will I sit?
We’re not sure yet and you will be moved around often to get experience sitting with a range of your classmates.
Will I make things and paint?
Yes, just like Y1 our topics are very creative.
Will I get to play?
Yes- morning and afternoon is playtime outside – unless it is raining very heavily.
Will we go on trips?
Hopefully if guidelines around Covid/ Corona virus say it is safe to do so, then yes we will.
What days will I have the teachers?
Mrs Huckerby will teach you Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday morning and Mrs Buck will teach you, Wednesday afternoons, Thursdays and Fridays.
What books do we read? 
We visit the library everyday and you read in class daily – often when you come in from playtime and lunch as well as Guided Reading. At the end of the day we share a class story. Here are some examples:
The Magic Faraway Tree, George’s Marvelous Medicine, Aesop Fables, Utterly Brilliant Poetry, Sheep Pig, The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me, The Worst Witch,  plus many more.

We can not wait to meet you all and hope you are looking forward to starting in September – we certainly are!

Have a fabulous transition week and summer holiday. We look forward to seeing you all in September!

Until then, here is a little video from us.

Welcome to  Y2 Blyton

Year 2 – Final Video

Hi all,

This is our final video of Year 2.  We want to say a huge thank you to all the grown ups for your support over the past few unusual weeks – your children are so lucky.  Once again, we have been amazed by the children’s work this week.  Thank you to everyone who has contributed photographs and videos – we have loved having the opportunity to continue seeing the children learn and develop.

We hope you enjoy this final video – get your tissues ready!

Take care and have a great summer.

The Year 2 team 😊





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.

Enjoy your last week of being a Year 2 pupil – we can’t wait to see pictures of your work and what you have all been getting up to.

Y2 Home Learning Week beginning 29.6.20

Hi Year 2!!

What a fabulous week it has been! Hopefully it has mean that you have been able to enjoy being outside as much as possible.

We hope you have enjoyed the Sports Week and managed to beat the teacher on some of the challenges! Mr Beard’s was particularly challenging, so well done to those that beat him!

It’s been great to talk to some of you and your parents/ caregivers this week. We miss you! Hearing how you have been getting on has been fab. You are all working so hard.

Some of you are starting to really miss school and your friends so it’s been nice to hear that you have been able to see a few people out and about (socially distanced) around Totley.

Here is this week’s learning. As always – do what you can. Try your best. That’s all we ask of you.

Please send photos of your work-and if anyone wants to send in their completed posters to school that would be amazing – the best ones will be displayed on the Year 2 corridor board!

Thanks again.

P. S A couple of parents have asked for extra work – so it is attached here as separate documents (Additional Reading Challenge/ Maths Extension Challenges) to our weekly home learning packs. Please note there is no expectation to do this – it is there to be used only if you want it.
