Together Everyone Achieves More
Our Year 6 Classes
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!
As a member of Year 6, it 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.

Term 1 - 'The Wonder of Me'
This term we will be focusing on ourselves and everything that makes us, us. Our core text, Wonder will support our writing this term and will help us to understand that even though we are all different, this is what makes us wonderful.
In maths, we will be consolidating our knowledge and understanding of place value, as well as ensuring our understanding of calculation strategies are solid. We will also be applying both of these areas into a wider contextual understanding and using it for bigger problem solving activities.
In our science, we will be looking at Evolution and Inheritance, in particular the work of Charles Darwin. We look forward to sharing with you our learning on how different species have adapted over thousands and millions of years.
