This term, our topic is called 'Darwin's Delights' and we will be finding out all about Charles Darwin. We will be finding out about his expedition to the mysterious Galápagos Islands where he discovered amazing species that helped him to develop his theory of evolution by natural selection. We have already looked at Darwin’s detailed drawings of things he saw there and we had a go at some observational drawing of shells.
In Science, we will be learning all about Evolution and Inheritance, looking at how living things change and adapt to their environments. We will learn about variation and adaptation. We will be able to explore how both Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace separately developed their theories of evolution and examine the scientific evidence from plants and animals that has been gathered to support the theory of evolution.
