Welcome to Southtown Primary School Nurturing shoots - growing minds


Year 5 - Poplar

Welcome to Poplar Class!

Mr Watson is the class teacher and is supported by Mr Kyriacou and Mr Price. 
Poplar Class have had a busy Autumn term and have been learning about Earth & Space as part of our topic work.


Things to remember
We have PE every Wednesday and Friday, so please remember to bring your kit in on these days. 


Our library time is on Wednesday, so please bring your book back to school if you would like to change it. Make sure that you always have your Accelerated Reader book at school every day, so that we can read in school daily and then take a quiz when ready. 


Spelling Homework is sent out on Monday so that spellings can be practised at home in readiness for our weekly spelling test on Friday. 


Autumn Term 1
As part of our 'Stargazers' topic, we have been learning about our solar system and the planets that are part of it, including Earth. We also learnt about the rotation of the earth and how this causes night and day, as well as why we have different phases of the moon. We also researched the history of space exploration and found out about the effects of gravity by carrying out scientific investigations. 

As part of our 'Stargazers' topic we had a visit from a mobile planetarium. The planterium show included looking at and learning about our solar system, including finding out about how the earth's rotation results in night and day and why we have different phases of the moon. We also learnt how to recognise different constellations of stars in the night sky.
