Maple Class Year 6

Welcome to Maple Class
Our theme this term in year 6 is 'Darwin's Discoveries'. We will be learning all about the infamous Charles Darwin and his journey on the HSM Beagle. We will 'stop off' at a variety of different locations including places in South America and the Galapagos Islands. We will be researching Charles Darwin's different theories and looking in detail about how animals adapt to survive in different environments as well as looking at evolution. 
This term we are reading 'Sky Hawk' by Gill Lewis. It is a fascinating story about how two children from two different countries track an endangered bird as it migrates across the world.
