On Thursday 28th February, year 6 went back in time and met scientist Alfred Russell Wallace at the natural history museum. He told them all about the theory of evolution and how he was one of the scientist that enabled Darwin to publish his theory. The children were able to explore the museums evolution section and understand exactly how different species have developed over time, including bizarre species that have very similar characteristics to humans! They took part in the beak challenge that Darwin used whilst studying birds and the survival of the fittest. All children had a great day and a great insight into their new topic science evolution and inheritance.
