Welcome to the new Year 3s

Hello and welcome to all the children leaving Year 2 and entering Year 3.  All the Year 3 staff have loved speaking to your Year 2 teachers and finding information out about you all over the last couple of weeks.  At the end of this post, the Year 3 staff have made a little video to say hello to you all.

You may have already received the Year2 – 3 transition pack in the post.  This is the same regardless of which class you will be going to next year and is also here for you information too.

As you will be learning German next year, Frau Griggs has put a German worksheet together for you.  She has also made a little video for you to watch.

We are all incredibly excited to have you join our team and have put together a little video saying hello to you.

Our email addresses are within the transition document and are also written below here.

Miss Cooper –

Miss Ellis –

Mr Beard –

We’re really looking forward to welcoming you back to school in September, and we hope you enjoy the activities in the transition pack. You can complete this pack in any order but we would like you to complete all the activities. Please send us examples of your brilliant work, we are so excited to see what you get up to!

Best wishes,

Miss Cooper, Miss Ellis, Mr Beard  and Mrs Holmes


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.

Draw with Rob

Hi everyone

You may have seen the post earlier with a picture I drew.  I thought I’d show a quick video of me making it, if you would like to see/ have a go.


Week 13 Home learning

Hello you lovely lot!

We hope you have had a lovely week despite the slightly wintery weather!  We cannot quite believe how close we are to the summer holidays, we are really sad that we cannot do our normal activities we usually do at this time, but we are excited about seeing you all in September (even though you will be in Year 4!)

This pack is the last official Year 3 pack we will be sending out because for Transition Week the children will complete work set by their new Year 4 teachers!

However, over the summer holidays the children will be given a pack by Year 3  to complete if you want to continue the home schooling model. There will be a couple of activities a week to complete and this is completely up to you if you complete them or not, with no pressure from school. We will keep you informed about this pack on the Year 3 Blog/emails.

Here is your home learning for next week:

As we always say, we would love to see your work as it really makes us smile. It has been so special seeing how independent, resilient and hardworking you have been whilst we haven’t been at school. We are very proud of you all.

We have another little challenge for you! At the hub, we have been testing our artistic skills and doing ‘Draw with Rob’, sketching all sorts of cute cartoon figures! Mr Beard has had a go at a dinosaur and we want to see what you can do! Here is the link to the drawing tutorials-

Good luck!

Have a lovely weekend!
