Year 6 2017

Miss Horrocks - Year 6 Class Teacher

 My name is Miss Horrocks and I am the new, year 6 teacher. Recently qualified, I spent my teacher training year at Kingston and fell in love with the school! 

One of the best things about working in Year 6 is the variety of interesting and insightful questions the children ask. Wanting to understand the world around them and explore their own beliefs and values makes working with year 6 children extremely rewarding. 

Although Year 6 can be a challenging year, I can see already that my class have a strong determination to reach their true potential and positive attidude towards supporting each other along the way!
 
In my spare time I enjoy spotting wildlife whilst on walks and watching science fiction films.

I work in Key Stage 2 helping the children to develop the skills they will need for secondary school. I thoroughly enjoy watching the children mature into young adults. 

My spare time is family time. I have two gorgeous children who love to go on adventures together, whether it's splashing in muddy puddles, taking our dog for a walk or going to the seaside.
