Yorkshire Wildlife Park - 15.03.2023

Yorkshire Wildlife Park

Year 6 had a fantastic day out on Wednesday, enjoying a visit to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park to enrich our science topic all about evolution and inheritance. We took part in a session with one of the Park's resident education officers who talked us through adaptation and evolution. During the session, we learnt about Charles Darwin and his study on the Galapagos Islands. We learnt about how adaptations are passed down through genetics and had a go at creating our own animals using adaptations seen in nature. Before and after our session, we spent time exploring the park and seeing all the fabulous animals. The children used their new-found knowledge to chat about what adaptations some of the animals had evolved to have. We also visited Pangea - The Discovery of Dinosaurs and the children were amazed by their size and realistic features. It was a fantastic day which really helped bring our science topic to life! A HUGE well done to all the Y6's who were a credit to our school.
