Although we are unable to meet as a whole school for our traditional Friday assembly, we can still share the great things which have been going on in our classrooms. Well done to all the children and staff for a fantastic return to school this week!
We can’t wait to welcome all of our Y1-Y6 children back to Totley Primary School next week! Here is a short video to give you a sneak peek of what school will look like.
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.)
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 email@example.com
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
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.
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.

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 😊
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.

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!

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.
