The Evolution and Inheritance programme will introduce Year 6 children to the work of Charles Darwin.  They will discover for themselves the contribution Darwin made to our understanding of the evolutionary process and how our understanding of the process of evolution has developed over time thanks to the evidence gathered by scientists and palaeontologists.

Activities include:

  • ‘The Origin of Species’ – the life of Charles Darwin
  • ‘Inheritance’ – identify characteristics passed on from one generation to the next
  • ‘Survival of the Fittest’ – identify ways in which random mutations result in advantageous adaptations
  • ‘Natural Selection’ – how variations spread through a population
  • ‘The Fossil Record’ – looking at how living things have changed over time

Opportunities:

Children will consider characteristics passed from one generation to the next and recognise that offspring vary from their parents.

They will learn about the process of natural selection and identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change”
(Darwin)

What People Say

We wanted a high interest, active day with lots for the children to get stuck into and we got that from Mark. Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design with aspects of Communication and Language were successfully delivered. The delivery and management of the day was very good. Communication beforehand was quick and thorough. We really enjoyed the day, thank you!

Ashleigh Walker, Chopwell Primary

The children thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor activities.  All the children were eager and excited to find out more.  A fantastic day – managed and delivered very well.  A really interesting way to focus on our topic of the Great Fire of London.

Cara Morton, Dubmire Primary School

Sam’s session was tailored and linked very well to our rainforests topic.  The session delivered exactly what we hoped it would – the children learnt about adaptations and were able to extend their knowledge in a creative way, at a perfect pace and with a range of activities.  The day was excellently delivered!

Rachel Harmer, Butterknowle Primary

The children thoroughly enjoyed the session and developed their knowledge about the Stone Age. The day was fantastic. It was delivered very well, the children were engaged all day and they learnt a lot about the topic, as well as developing skills such as team building and problem solving.

Nicola Cooke, St. Anne’s CE Primary

A very useful CPD that delivered ideas for creative outdoor activities and experiments for science as well as cross curricular links. Thank you for a great day!
