Year 6 have found out Charles Darwin spent 5 years travelling on HMS Beagle. Today they have used maps, atlases and google maps to locate the countries and islands that he stopped at on his voyage. The children were amazed at some of the places he visited and they have all decided they want to travel when they are older. 

Did Darwin spend more time in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere?


How many worms are under the ground?

This week, in science, Year 6 are investigating this question. Before they can do this, the children needed to find the best worm charming technique. The winning group managed to find 23 by using water and then stomping with their feet. Classification charts were then used to identify different species. Did you know there are 28 species of worm in the UK?
