Mrs Thompson - 5GT

In 5GT we have PE every Thursday and Friday.


Pupils will need to come to school in their full PE Kit instead of uniform for the days above.



Happy New Year to you all.


I hope that you will have all enjoyed Christmas, even though I am sure it was quite different for most of you!


I am really looking forward to the new term in 5GT and to seeing you all again.


This term we are studying the 'Frozen Kingdom' of the Polar regions. We shall be looking at the animals that live there and the amazing geographical features that exist at the extremes of our planet. 


We shall also be learning about Polar explorers and those naturalists that bring to life the amazing world we live in. 


In English we shall be looking at one of my favourite books - The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe! I am really excited to read this with the children. We shall also be watching the film at the end of the unit. 


For full details of our curriculum for this term, please see our Curriculum Map. 


As we are still keeping to the social distancing rules, I unfortunately cannot speak with you at the door when you drop your children off in a morning however this does not mean I am not available should you wish to discuss any aspect of your child's schooling. Please just email the office at or telephone the school and I will be happy to speak with you.


Here's to another successful term in Year 5 at Poplars.
