Yorkshire Wildlife Park 16.03.2022

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 Galapagos Finches. 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. It was a fantastic day which really helped bring our science topic to life!
