About Poplar

Year 5 realise that we are some of the most responsible children at Airthrie. We believe that our behaviour should set a good example to others; we try very hard ensure that we are good role models and are very proud to take on special day-to-day duties to help the smooth running of the school.

Our milk bottle collection rota, shared with Alder, not only provides a service to every other form but is also a major recycling facility ensuring that we take responsibility for our own Carbon Footprint and set a good Green Impact example to younger children.

During the academic year Poplar and Alder enjoy many local area walks during our Local Area Topic. We also visit The Dean Heritage Centre to compare town to country within the locality. Our Egyptian Topic takes us to the Ashmoleon in Oxford and we regularly attend the various Cheltenham Festivals, such as Literature and Science.
