Welcome to Year Five! 

I am Mrs Howarth, the class teacher. I am joined by Miss Milner, Class Inspire's teaching assistant. Year Five is an exciting year for our students as we focus on developing our skills and knowledge whilst immersing ourselves in engaging topics throughout the year.


In Class Inspire, we strive to nurture our children, develop inquisitiveness and provide opportunities for collaborative work. We focus on fun learning which provides the children with plenty of opportunities to shine and showcase their individual qualities. Each child's uniqueness is valued and nourished. 


"Surround yourself with people and things that inspire you.

Learn everything you can." 

Jameela Jamil


"Inspiration comes from within yourself. One has to be positive.

When you're positive, good things happen."  

Deep Roy


Please see this term's newsletter below which details our curriculum during the Autumn term.

Routines in Class


At the start of the day, children will enter the classroom where they will settle into some basic daily arithmetic practise. 

Morning break will be at 11am. If you wish, you may send a healthy snack in with your child for them to consume at this time.



We ask that you read with your child as often as possible. Your child will have a reading record that can be signed by yourself every time your child reads or is read to. In KS2, children will be expected to quiz regularly on Accelerated Reader upon completion of their book. As a minimum, we generally expect that children quiz at least once every fortnight. This helps aid their fluency and stamina to digest larger volumes of text - excellent preparation for  the Year 6 curriculum.



PE in Autumn will be on Tuesday and Thursday. Children should come into school dressed in their PE kits. This consists of: Black leggings/joggers, PE Top and hoody, jumper or cardigan. 



Homework will predominantly be set using Century Tech - an interactive web-based learning platform. Your child will receive their login details at the start of term, which will be stored in their reading journal.
