Autumn Term

 

 

 

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.

Charles Darwin

One day a letter came to Darwin who twice failed to meet his father's expectations about him. 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.
