Y6 Evolution and inheritance workshop- part 2

In the second part of our workshop we got to explore fossils up-close using a digital microscope. We looked at a huge range of fossils including from animals such as mammoths, whales, megalaceros and even fossilised dinosaur poo!!

What a fantastic day!!

Y6 Evolution and inheritance workshop- part 1

What a fun-filled morning. We looked at the theory of evolution with natural selection. We recreated the famous picture of the origin of species-the children suited their roles very well. We had a competition of who could collect the most ping-pong balls with different tools. We looked at the anatomy of the human skeleton and how it is linked with other animals. In our PE session we completed different circuit challenges thinking about how the body would move and what animals we would look similar to. 

I am impressed with your knowledge Year 6- fantastic work so far!

Survival of the fittest in Y6

Year 6 designed fair tests this week to see who would survive through natural selection. They chose different 'beaks' that they had to use to collect as much food as possible. They set up the investigations scientifically exploring how they would control the constants and variables fairly. They had a lot of fun collecting their food- some of the birds were very messy. I think that some of the birds may have also tried to cheat a little bit too; a lot of fun was had by all.
