Y5 wk 2 – Homework answers

Hi everyone!

Here are the answers to this week’s homework. Very shortly, we will be launching our new online learning platform, so that we can give feedback to each child, but thank you to everyone who is having a look at their child’s work, and discussing it at home ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

Homework wk 2

Hi everyone!

Thanks for completing your homework last week, and filling in the Google form to let me know ๐Ÿ™‚

This week, we have another set of spellings from this week’s lessons. We also have some maths tasks you may recognise from a week or two ago. Can you remember the skills you needed to complete the equivalent fractions tasks? There’s a challenge which you can have a go at if you want as well.

Summer activity pack

Here are activity packs for over the Summer Holidays.ย 

(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 โ€˜behindโ€™ if they donโ€™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, weโ€™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 anย ย ย ย ย ย  extraordinary time, but the strength of the Totley Primary School community is as strong as ever.

Best wishes, The Totley Team x

Transition week – Hello new Y5s!

Good morning Y5!

Welcome to your first week in Y5, and it is always one of my favourite weeks. I love getting to know a new class of people, but I always feel a little nervous too.

It’s a little strange this year, but hopefully you’ve all got your transition packs. Throughout lock down, I created videos for my class to help explain tasks, so I thought it would be nice to do the same for you guys ๐Ÿ™‚

Below is a video for each task along with a French task from Madame Griggs! You don’t have to watch them, but it might help you with some ideas and also help you feel like we are getting to know each other. Feel free to email me any of your work that you do as it would be great to see what you get up to and help get to know my new class even more ๐Ÿ™‚

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 yourย new year groupย 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.

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? ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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
