Welcome to Poplar!



Hello and Welcome!


Welcome to our class page! Our Teacher is Mr Sykes and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Birkett, Mrs Leat and Mr Merriman. We are enjoying another fantastic year in Poplar Class!


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



Our topic for Terms 5 and 6 is:


Best of British!

A new term finds us with a new theme, and this term our theme is ‘Best of British'. This will remain for the whole of the Summer Term. It is a History based theme on World War Two.


Through our new topic, we will be gaining an understanding of many aspects of World War Two. We will assessing how World War Two started before analysing the Battle of Britain. We will finish by looking at life on the home front. As a reward for their hard work in SATs, the Year 6s will finish our History topic with a 1945 street party. The Year 5s will not be forgotten as they will have the chance to make some World War Two ration-style food. In Term 6, our focus will switch to Geography. We will be comparing Wiltshire's geographical features to features of other counties in the United Kingdom. Our Science focus will also link to our topic as we will be studying the life-cycles of different British plants.

A few reminders:


Home Learning will be given out on Fridays. Children will be asked to read and practise their spellings. They may sometimes be given work based on current English, Maths and Topic work too. Spellings and mental maths will be tested weekly. These tests will take place on the following Friday.


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
