Welcome to Southtown Primary School Nurturing shoots - growing minds


Year 5 - Poplar

Welcome to Poplar Class!

Mrs Southernwood is the year 5 class teacher and is supported by Mr Price and Mrs Hanley.


Our topic for the first half term is ‘Stargazers’ and we are excited to be using this space topic to enhance our learning.

Our weekly timetable will also include:

PE – Tuesdays and Fridays

Swimming – Friday (half of Poplar Class will swim this term and half will have the opportunity next term).

It is important that all pupils bring the appropriate kit for these lessons.


Our library day is Friday but pupils will have opportunities to use the library throughout the week so it is important for them to bring their books in every day.


Autumn Term 1

Our first topic this half term is Stargazers! We are exploring and learning about space, planets and stars. We have kicked off our topic with an incredible visit from a mobile planetarium, which gave us the opportunity to look closer at the planets in our Solar System as well as learning more about stars and constellations.
