Year 6

Welcome to Year 6, Horizon Class at Shalfleet Primary

Welcome to Horizon Class – Year 6. The children are taught by Mrs Blackley, supported by Ms Lucas as the teaching assistant with Mrs Blackburn teaching during Mrs Blackley’s PPA time. Together we aim to provide the children with an interesting, motivating and challenging curriculum which will both engage and help to develop the children through their final primary year, enabling them to be prepared both socially and academically for their next school.

Year 6 is an important year, the children will all undertake roles and responsibilities throughout the school.This involvement enables the children to become more proactive in the school community, helping them to develop into responsible, independent and mature pupils. As secondary school is approaching, we encourage the pupils to be more self-reliant and self -sufficient. They will become more responsible for their own learning and progress.

Our aim is to fully prepare the children for their approaching escalation into the new world of secondary education, and beyond.


The topics in year 6 this year are as follows:-

Autumn 1 People and Places – Y6 MTP Autumn 1 – People & Places

Autumn 2 Local History (Teacher’s Choice)

Spring 1 World War Two

Spring 2 The Human Body

Summer 1 Structures ( Pupil’s Choice)

Summer 2 Changes

The overall theme throughout all these topics is ‘Change’; the children will learn about different types of change and when it is / has been a good thing and when it is / has not been a good thing for mankind. In their chosen topic the class would like to study famous buildings around the world combined with engineering and famous people (architects and artists).

Please see some photos of what we got up to in 2016-2017

Science investigation: Does coloured water produce coloured water droplets? Children made their own water cycle in a bag to determine the answer.

These pictures are from a Southern Water talk. The children needed to show how we used water, how germs spread easily (glitter on hands) and how paper breaks down in the water but wet wipes don’t even after a year!

These pictures are from our ‘boat making ‘ afternoon where parents were invited in to support their children with their designing!
