Hello everyone and welcome to the Class 6 page! This is where you will find all the information you need to know about what we will be doing this year.  There is so much to look forward to, your final year at St Giles is going to be brilliant!

PE - PE is on a Wednesday, please come to school in PE kit and bring something suitable for being outside.

Remember: it's really important to be at school every day, on time and ready to learn.

Note to parents: Even though our children will not take the SATS test this year, we try our best to prepare them through our normal curriculum and for life wider than school. It is important that children complete their homework weekly, learn their spellings and read every day.

Our Class Reading Book is...

Recommended Reading!

The more you read the more you know...

As I am sure you are aware, as well as being an enjoyable pastime, reading impacts hugely on
children’s writing ability and general learning. We encourage children to read as much as possible,
both at home and in school. Here are some personal favourites and we have included a link to a website that outlines further books for your little book worms!

We have a bookshelf/reading area in class and school library where children are welcome to take books home to read. They are also invited to bring books from home in to read for pleasure! Our local library in Pontefract is amazing and we work closely with them throughout the year - if you would like any information on how you can use the library further please don't hesitate to ask us or visit the library in town.
