Our Learning Journey

Darwin's Delights

Year 6 are working hard to find out about different animals: What they look like; how they adapt to their surrounding and that only the strongest will survive!

 

Memorable experience-Zoo Lab

For their memorable experience, Year 6 were treated to an afternoon discovering new animals.  Ella - an animal handler from Zoo Lab- visited school, along with a variety of different animals including: a huge corn snake, a giant snail and even a TARANTULA!!  The children were given the opportunity to stroke, touch and even hold the animals.  During the session, the children asked Ella a variety of questions about the animals and also discussed how the animals could have adapted to their environment, which is a link to their current topic- ‘Darwin’s Delights.

Here are some images of year 6 identifying and stroking the different animals

 

Natural selection experiment

As part of their Darwin’s Delights topic, Year 6 continued to investigate the process of Natural Selection.  They focused on animals which are able to camouflage themselves in order to avoid predators.  The children conducted an experiment using different coloured paper.  They had 20 seconds to grab as many pieces of paper as possible (the colours represented different moths). The children found that it was much more difficult to pick out the ‘moths’ which were the same colour as the background and instead chose the other colours instead.

 

Here are some other images of an activity that year 6 did participate in this activity was the blubber glove activity
