It’s time for us to be biologists this half term in Science and with this we will be studying evolution and inheritance.

The world renowned scientist, Charles Darwin first theorised about evolution back in the 1800s. He noticed that different species had different traits or characteristics which allowed them to adapt to the environment that they were living in. He came up with the idea of natural selection, whereby animals adapt in order to survive.

Biologists also use fossils to find out about prehistoric times before history was actively recorded. We will be following in the footsteps of famous palaeontologist. Mary Annoying by  studying fossils and what they can tell us about the past in our first week.
