Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

Miss Skuse, Mr Burns, Miss Turner and Miss Prescott are our Year 6 teachers.

As part of their ‘Adapt to survive’ inquiry project, our Year 6 children will learn much about the work of Charles Darwin. However, Darwin is not the only famous botanist whose work has influenced our understanding of how plants adapt to survive and how to harness this understanding to our own advantage. Our Year 6 children have learned about George Washington Carver: the peanut wizard and Dr Tanisha Williams who founded #BlackBotanistWeek.
