Spring 2 – Darwin’s Discoveries
During the next few weeks we will be developing our science skills. We will be finding out about fossils and how they are formed. We will also learn about palaeontologists and understand how they use evidence to build up a picture of the past.
The man in the photograph below is called Charles Darwin. What can you find out about him?
We will be building on our understanding of how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment and we will be learning about how adaptation may lead to evolution.
In addition, we will be learning about how children look similar, but not identical, to their parents. Have a look at photographs of different families/family groups. Can you see a likeness between siblings, parents or grandparents? You could bring some photos into school.
We will also be reading the book ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ by Michael Morpurgo.
