Well done for all of your fantastic work and effort this week!

Your homework this week is as follows:

  2. Make sure you are going on Spelling Shed to practice the spellings we have set you.
  3. Don’t forget to read regularly at home. This can be to an adult, a sibling, or to yourself!
  4. Here is a maths task for you to complete: Maths Homework . This week we looked at x1,10 and 100 and dividing by 1, 10 and 100 and factor pairs.
  5. Here is your Topic menu for this half term: Autumn1 Topic homework

If you have misplaced your passwords or have any questions, please do let us know.

Have a lovely weekend,

Y4 Homework 18.9.20

Hello Y4!

Welcome to your class blog. Each Friday, your homework will be uploaded to the blog, and you will complete this in your homework book (where applicable). Your homework book does not need to come in to school, your adults at home will let us know when you have completed it.

This week, we would like you to do the following:

TT Rockstars

Please play 10 x minutes daily. Aim to work through the automated levels by playing the Garage games.

TTRS Parent help :Parent letter

Spelling Shed

Log in to Spelling Shed.

(Y4R have got their passwords in their homework books. Y4D have been given their passwords today).

We will set an assignment to play based on spellings we have learnt in school.

Spelling Shed parent help: SS Parent Guide


Everyone has been given the opportunity to borrow a book from school, but please do let your class teacher know if you do not have one on Monday.  Please make sure you are reading daily; this could be to an adult or to yourself.


Autumn1 Topic homework

This is your topic homework for this half term; choose the tasks that interest you most. You are not expected to complete a task every week (unless you want to), some will take a little longer. Aim to complete a piece of topic homework every 2 weeks.


Have a fantastic weekend, we look forward to seeing you again on Monday!

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

Thank you for sharing your transition work so far, it has been fantastic to see the effort you are putting in to your Year 4 learning.

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.
