Location: on site

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

Sam is a wonderful trainer.  His outdoor pursuits inspired us with a multitude of reasons to embrace all aspects of nature and outdoor life. The students attending this course were all motivated to follow in Sam’s footsteps and engage children in a variety of fun outdoor activities with children in their own settings.

Wendy Jackson, Bishop Auckland College

A great hands-on training day – loads of new ideas and I now feel more confident to use the outdoors with children.

Kay Murray, Pelton Community Primary

I enjoyed the activities immensely because you were there to add knowledge, enthusiasm and a ‘different slant’ on our habitats topic. Your delivery at our school was fantastic and our aims to increase the children’s knowledge and enjoyment were met. The day was very well delivered, organised and managed. We were extremely impressed with how you were with the children and your knowledge of the topic. We shall be contacting you again to see if you have any other topics that you could deliver.

Andrea Farlow, Cockton Hill Junior School

Sam is absolutely fantastic at what he does and we consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have him as part of our team! The children adore their time with him and his weekly Forest School sessions are so engaging, even the staff look forward to donning their waterproofs and wellies to join in (muddy puddles and all)! Over the past few years, we have used SC.OUT.ED to deliver sessions, both in and out of school, and the response from children, staff and parents has always been phenomenal…and the children can’t stop talking about their learning with a huge smile (what more could we ask for?!). If you are looking for highly-skilled practitioners to enhance your curriculum offer with exciting & challenging outdoor learning opportunities, look no further than SC.OUT.ED; we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them!

Lisa Pegman, Deputy Headteacher, Simonside Primary School

The session was booked to enhance the children’s imagination – it definitely delivered on this! The day was organised brilliantly and was enjojed by both children and adults….the children were asking when you were coming back for the rest of the week!
