Spring Term 2019


This term we will be looking at Spies! Our English text will be 'Stormbreaker' by Anthony Horowitz (the original book in the famous young spy, Alex Rider, series). We will be focusing upon electrical circuits in Topic and covering a range of areas in maths - including algebra! Stay tuned to see some of what we have covered...



Our own Alex Rider Novels!

Before we read too far and find out exactly what happens in our book, we've had a go at writing our very own continuations! We invited parents in to share our work with too (don't worry if you missed out though - we will be bringing these home just after Easter).

Silhouette Art

Using an idea borrowed from our book this term, Stormbreaker, we used silhouettes to design our own, alternative front covers. What do you think? I believe we could definitely use one of these for a new addition!

Check out the slideshow below yes

Easter Maths Trail

To finish off our maths for the term, we held an Easter Maths Trail, including questions from all of the Maths areas we had recently covered!

Chocolate eggs were up for grabs for those who managed to find all of the correct answers in the correct order (and everyone who else who gave it a really good go!). Can you answer any of the questions you see?  

Summer Term 2019

A new term sees a brand new topic here in Year 5 at Poplars! Now, not wanting to give anything away, but do you think, using the clues below, can anyone work out where our topic is set?

Be sure to tell me your ideas on the 24th April!
