Year 6

"The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity."

The staff and pupils in Year 6 welcome you to our page. We hope you find it useful and if you have any ideas on how it could be improved, please speak to one of the Year 6 team.


Being in Year 6 means that we need to set an outstanding example to all. Our aim is to be the best we can be by working hard every day, supporting each other, and most of all, enjoying our last year at Fleetdown. It will be a challenging and busy year, but we want to make it the best year yet!


Being in Year 6 also means that we are working hard to build our independence and ability to learn in many different ways. We always demonstrate the three key values of Fleetdown Primary Academy: Respect, Responsibility, Equality.

"Diversity is about all of us, and about us having to figure out how to walk through this world together."

Jacqueline Woodson, American Children's Author

Term 2 - Poles Apart

Our children are on their final lap of primary school and what better way to start it by exploring who we are and how far we have come.

This term, our topic is ‘Poles Apart’. We are going to learn everything about the famous expeditions to the Poles, as well as the wonder that is the geography of the areas. We will be exploring our drawing techniques and considering light and dark within artwork, as well as learning about the animals and the beautiful habitats in which they live. 


Fun Fact: Scientists can extract DNA from a polar bear’s footprint, as well as what it may have just eaten!


Our Maths learning this term will consist of fractions, decimals, percentages and some work with transformation and translation. We will be writing explanation texts and awesome narratives through our writing lessons, delving into the spendour of the frozen planet!

We will be reviewing our understanding of each of the Reading strands and familiarising ourselves with the questions types we will be encountering throughout the year. We have two texts for this term!
