Welcome to Poplar Class

The children are taught by Mr Phillips.

Assisted by our marvellous support team

Mrs King, Mrs Duffy, Mrs Larkins, Mrs White and Mrs Jackson.

This term our topic will be Ancient Greece, where we will be busy discovering how this historical period has shaped our lives, reading and writing Greek myths in English and using our creative skills to make Greek pots and food! 

Friday 22nd September

Fun in class acting out the story of Pandora's box and a little trip to Mumbury to play some field hockey.

Friday 15th September


Photos from our netball practice and some body percussion from music.

Another fabulous week full of blood, guts and gore as we wrote descriptive settings and action scenes with Theseus facing off against the terrible Minotaur.

Friday 8th September


What a busy first week back! In English we've learnt about the Greek myth Theseus and the Minotaur whilst in PE we practised our Bollywood dance moves. We voted for our new house captains and school council reps - well done to those who were brave and gave a speech. We ended the week testing our tastebuds by sampling some Greek foods.
