Year 5 – Poplar

Welcome to Poplar Class!

My name is Mrs Faulkner and this is my fourth year teaching, in Key Stage 2, at Wilsden Primary. As well as teaching in year 5, I am also an Assistant Head with a responsibility for Key Stage 2, English and PSHCE. Over the last twelve months, I have led a lot of new initiatives in school to raise the profile of mental health and well-being with the children and staff. This is an area of the curriculum I am very passionate about and have lots of ideas which I will be looking to implement over coming months. 

I am very excited about the year ahead as we have three very exciting and engaging topics planned which the children chose themselves at the end of last year. We begin the autumn term with ‘NASA’. We will be finding out lots of interesting facts about space through lots of exciting and engaging activities. In the Spring term our topic will be ‘Crime and Punishment’ and our final topic of the year will be ‘Our Wonderful World’.
