Poplar CLASS

Welcome to Poplar Class

In Poplar class, Mr Matthews is the class teacher. 

We are learning

In English this term, we will start by reading an adventure story, Kindlekrax, before using it as a template to write our own stories. We will then move onto thinking about our local environment through The Promise.

In science in the first half term, we will be investigating the life cycle of plants.

In the second half we will explore taste and staying safe around food in our STEM project.

In Maths we will be following our Maths No Problem curriculum. We will begin the term by looking at a range of graphs and charts that display data before moving onto building on our knowledge about fractions

In topic tin the first half term, our history topic will explore the question, “What changed from the Stone Age to the Iron Age?”

In the second half-term we will be learning about the Mediterranean in our Geography work.


This year, homework and each week’s spellings will be set on Seesaw.                                                      There is also a reading homework activity for each week which can be found in your child's Reading Record. Children are expected to read regularly and record this in their Reading Record. Please encourage your child to select a book to read from the book corner in their classroom and to choose a new book when they have finished each one. They must have their Reading Records in school every day.


PE lessons are on Mondays and Thursdays. Every child needs to bring in a full PE kit including a top of their house team’s colour, clean socks and suitable trainers.  Please make sure they also have a tracksuit for when the weather gets colder. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me on our class email address if you have any concerns or questions at

However, if you need to speak to us directly about anything, then after school when you pick up your child is the best time.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mr Matthews
