Inspire Class


'You're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.'

Welcome to Inspire Class. Here in Year Five, you will find 28 friendly, fun and fabulous children who are taught by myself, Mrs. Whittaker, along with Miss Lord and Mrs. Burgess. 

This year, we will be learning about many interesting and exciting topics such as North America, the Vikings and Anglo Saxons, our local history, the Solar System and will get creative through our art and DT projects. We like to share our learning with others, so we look forward to you joining us each term during class assemblies and topic afternoons.


Please do not hesitate to contact me via email or on the door if you have any questions. 





Routines in Class


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

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 are expected read for 20-minutes each evening and 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 the Autumn term will be on Monday. Swimming will be taken during the morning and Table Tennis/Football will be in the afternoon.

Children should come into school dressed in their PE kits (plain black leggings/joggers, PE T-shirt and school hoody, jumper or cardigan) and must remember their swimming kit too. 



Homework will predominantly be set using Century Tech - an interactive web-based learning platform- and it is expected that children complete 3 maths nuggets per week. Your child will receive their login details at the start of term, which will be stored in their reading journal. In addition, further homework may be given to enhance or consolidate the learning that has taken place in class.
