To start off our new topic, year 6 spent the afternoon acting as Scientists! They were given information from Darwin’s research centre to explain that the data had been lost in relation to his theory of evolution. The children were given maps and information about finches to identify which finch belonged to which island.
The children worked with props (blue-tac, chopsticks and tweezers) to imitate life for the finches during Darwin’s exploration. The children worked well in groups and enjoyed acting as researchers!
