Welcome to Poplar's class page. We are taught by Miss Parry and are very lucky to have two amazing teaching assistants; Mrs Prior and Mrs Cannings helping us. Here you can find information about upcoming events, weekly homework and important notices.


This term's topic:

Is there anything out there?



Friday 7th July

We hope that you all received our email today, but just in case you didn't, we are going to be having a healthy picnic at the field on Monday 17th July, so please send your child in with their chosen healthy packed lunch. This is to tie in with our healthy bodies science topic.


We will also be making healthy savoury biscuits on Monday 17th and Tuesday 18th, for which we are asking for voluntary donations of £1 per pupil to cover the cost. Payments can be made on sco-pay or brought in to class in an envelope. Thank you so much for your support with this!



I have informed children today that due to so many of them forgetting their PE kit frequently (which should be in school at all times!) from next week if they do not have the correct kit they will get an orange code each time.


If you have any questions or queries, as always you can find me on the playground at the end of the day, or drop the office an email and they will forward it to me.

Our Owl!

We are so excited as this week we have seen an owl in the garden outside the classroom, sleeping in the tree! We think he has arrived due to the mice who may be eating the fallen bird seed that we have been putting out. We are keeping an eye out for him as so far we have seen him twice in the same tree. We have added him to our bird spotter's tally.


Garden fun!

Trip to the Science Museum. Lots of fun and exciting activies to enjoy. The children asked some brilliant questions!


Phase 1 homework consists of reading, spellings and maths each week.


This half term most maths homework will be completed on Mathletics.  You can access the website through the link above.  The children each have individual logins that they can use to access the tasks set.  Homework will be set on a Friday to be completed by the following Friday.  If you do not have access to a computer at home, please let me know and we can arrange a time in school for your child to complete the work.


Reading homework should be recorded in the children's reading record books.  The children are expected to read at home at least 5 times a week.  This can be a book from home or their school reading book. I collect in the reading records every Monday and award house points for children who have put great effort into their reading.


Spelling homework will be handed out on a Friday, to be completed by the following Friday. 


Each week, you will choose 5 words from the statutory lists to learn how to spell correctly. The aim is to learn to spell all of the statutory words by the end of the year. You should keep your list/blue book to add to in your poly pocket with the statutory spelling lists.
