Term 3


Topic/Science: This term our topic is Darwin's Delights.


The children will be finding out about Charles Darwin and his ground-breaking Theory of Evolution. Linked closely to this is our science work on adaptation, looking at how plants and animals evolve to survive in their specific habitat.
