In Science, we have been learning about Charles Darwin and the Theory of Evolution. We have found out how living things change over time through variation of inherited characteristics and natural selection. We then interviewed Charles Darwin about his discoveries.

Our Geography unit this term links to our Science, because we have just started learning about the Galapagos Islands: we found out how remote they are using Google Earth and atlases. We also learnt about longitude, latitude and the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn.

In RE, we have begun our unit of work on Sources of Wisdom: the Easter Stories, and began to find out about Lent, Shrove Tuesday (next Tuesday is Pancake Day!) and Ash Wednesday. We thought about what we might give up for Lent and how Lent might help Christians.
