Term 5

Term 5 Darwin and Evolution


This term we will start off by going on a voyage of discovery as we follow Darwin's Voyage of the Beagle and ask the question 'Where did we come from?'. We will be exploring evolution and inheritance and looking at how traits are passed on from parent to offspring. We will look at how both plants and animals have adapted to survive in certain environments.

Later in the term we will be exploring the art work of Alberto Giacometti and thinking about the human form. We will look at proportion and movement and use skills of sculpting to create our own work based on the works of Giacometti.

This is a busy term as we approach the year 6 SATs which will take place in week 3 (letters  have been sent out with further details of this).
