Welcome to Poplar!



Hello and Welcome!


Welcome to our class page! Our Teacher is Mr Sykes and we are very lucky to have four fantastic Teaching Assistants. They are Mrs Birkett, Mrs Holdway, Mrs Leat and Mr Merriman. We are equally as lucky to have Miss Usher who will be training to be a teacher with us this year. We are looking forward to having another fantastic year in Poplar Class!


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to see Mr Sykes.



Our topic for Terms 1 and 2 is:


Greece Is The Word!




A new year finds us with a new theme, and this term our theme is ‘Greece is the Word'. This will remain for Terms 1 and 2. It is a History based theme on the Ancient Greeks.


Through our new topic, we will be gaining an understanding of many aspects of the Ancient Greeks. We will start by locating Greece and discussing its position in the world. After this, we will look at famous ancient battles, examine the Greek alphabet, enjoy Greek poetry and make our own Greek vases.


In addition to our history, we will be looking at The Creation and The Fall in RE, Electricity and Light in Science and gymnastics and football in PE.

Additional Home Learning:


If you would like to do some additional learning at home, there are some great websites for research and revision. Hit the Button is a great way to practise your tables and BBC KS2 Bitesize has lots of opportunities to practise a wide variety of English, Maths and Science topics. Or perhaps you could make a PowerPoint or poster about something you have learnt. I would love to see it smiley
