I am delighted to welcome you to the Totley All Saints website which should give you a flavour of all the amazing things that our children experience at our school! TASS is extremely special & is well loved by its children, staff & parents! We seek to provide a top quality education, an extremely caring atmosphere & one where children can fully thrive & reach their full & amazing potential as a child of God!
As we always say – it’s all happening at TASS!

Happy Half Term
We wish our families a wonderful half term as they break up this Friday (27.5.16) & look forward to seeing everyone back in school for more fun times at TASS on Monday 6th June. Thanks for all your support!
Global Week: Monday 20th to 24th June including Green Day on 23rd June!
This term has shot by & next half term is always the busiest one of all! In week 3 we will be holding another fantastic Global Week (plus our Green Day – more news to follow later). Each class will be taking a continent & learning about various aspects, such as: population data, climate, religion, language, food & traditions. The continents to be covered will include: Australia (FS2), Antarctica (Y1), Asia (Y2), South America (Y3), Africa (Y4), North America (Y5) & Europe (Y6). All staff are in the planning process at the moment & are really excited about what the children will be learning. If parents & carers have any artifacts from the continents above (& don’t mind sending them in for the children to look at during the last week of term) then we would be most grateful for anything that you can offer! Thank you!
Shakespeare Week: Monday 27th June to 1st July plus Shakespeare Rocks!
To celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, we’ll be having our very own Shakespeare Week (27th June to 1st July) & putting on ‘Shakespeare Rocks!’ as our performance in the final week before breaking up for summer! We’ll send out more details regarding performances very soon!
Y5 Building Communities through Dialogue
The Y5s had a great time last Thursday when they went to Millhouses Park to meet up with the Y5s from Netheredge Primary School. The event was part of a project in which the same class visited TASS earlier in the term called Building Communities through Dialogue. The aim of the project is to develop confidence & skills in speaking and listening, as well as build trust with people from different cultural backgrounds that feed into the same secondary school. These activities will continue into Y6 & then on into King Ecgbert’s. The children had a great time with a morning of sporting activities & play before eating their packed lunches together.
To celebrate the Queens 90th Birthday on Friday 10th June, the PTA would like to commemorate the event and give each child the opportunity to buy a commemorative silver coin. Each coin will be engraved with the Totley All Saints name on the back and be presented in a velvet pouch for safe keeping. The cost of each coin is £3.00.If you would like to place an order please return the reply slip along with payment to the school office by Thurs 26th May so we can order the coins in time for the celebration. Dates have been set for the next two PTA meetings: Tues 7th June, 3:30pm & Tues 14th June, 3:30pm in Y3 classroom. We’ll provide colouring activities and light refreshments to keep the children occupied. If you’d like to get involved but are unable to attend the meetings, please let the office know and we’ll be in touch.
Megan Hill (Y3) attended the Sheffield Children’s University Award ceremony on 17th May & was given her Bronze award for a massive 430 hours of gymnastics participation! Congratulations to Megan – what a star!
