Welcome to Darwin class!
This year, we have named our classes based on inspirational people from around the world and from throughout history. Ours has changed for our new Year 6 cohort. We are a straight Year 6 class this year and children are encouraged to reach for the stars and to strive and achieve the best that they can!
Mr Bashford-Cole and Mrs Walters will be teaching the class equally over the week. Mr Bashford-Cole will be in class on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Mrs Walters will be in class on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
We are very lucky to have Miss Palmer as our TA again this year and she can't wait to work with you all.
Our three topics this year are:
- Autumn - The Victorians
- Spring - The Golden Age of Islam
- Summer- TBC
As most of you know already, we love to have great links and relationships with all the children and their families, so please feel free to contact us whenever you need to and we will always help however we can. Use the email address below:
We can't wait to have a fantastic year together!!

Charles Darwin was an English scientist who studied nature. He is known for his theory of evolution by natural selection. According to this theory, all living things are struggling to survive. The living things that have the most helpful traits for their environment tend to survive. These living things then pass along their helpful traits to their young. In this way, animals change, or evolve, over hundreds of years. He described his ideas in his important book, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection (1859).
