Summer

This half term we are looking at relationships, puberty and growing up. The children will be looking at how our bodies change as we get older and how babies are born – there is a short video on child birth that is included in these sessions, if you have any concerns please pop in and see me. There are some wonderful books available that can support your children’s learning at home. Some that are recommended are:

In science the children will be studying living things and their habitats; adaptation and evolution and the life of Charles Darwin. We will focus on classification and the similarities and differences between different groups of living things including microorganisms, plants and animals.

It said professor Handler recommended Darwin as naturalist to the HMS Beagle scheduled to depart for the West Indies. His father, who objected to it at first, allowed him to go there after all because of his enthusiasm.
