On Wednesday, we took a journey to Downe in Kent to explore the home of Charles Darwin.
We found out a lot about his life, his family and his experiments.
We then had the chance to perform our own experiment about the shape of finches beaks and how it supports the theory of evolution by natural selection. We made predictions, discussed how to ensure a fair test, performed the experiment (using safety goggles and gloves), recorded the results and then shared our conclusions.
We then went and had a picnic and some time to play.
We had a wonderful day (despite the long journey back) and everyone was engaged, well behaved and considerate. We even received 5 compliments from members of the public. Well done 6F, we are very proud of you!
