Welcome to Poplar Class
The children are taught by Mrs Tawse (Mrs Coe on Fridays), ably assisted by Mrs Page.
14th January 2022
The children have settled back very quickly and are working hard. We are enjoying our study of Native American tales and the children will be writing their own version of why things are the way they are. We have launched into: POP art, the human body (Science), appreciating different styles of music, hockey, clothing (French), further study of Islam (RE) and tolerance (PSHE). As usual the children have embraced the subjects with enthusiasm. Their questioning ability and debating skills sometimes make it difficult to fit the teaching in!
We would be grateful if the children could ensure they have their Super Six, water bottle and coat in school.
