Darwin's Delights


Our topic this term is 'Darwin's Delight'. We will find out about his epic journey on the HMS Beagle. We will have the opportunity to:

  • Investigate his journey across the oceans
  • Explore the Galapagos Islands and discover the many species that inspired Darwin to develop his theory of evolution 
  • See how plants and animals adapt to their environment
  • Explore the effect of humans on plants and animals
  • Investigate how humans have evolved over time and how they might look in the future
  • Research some of the world's greatest explorers and naturalists.


Keep posted to find out more!


Topic Web

Using the LPS Question Matrix approach, Year 6 devised their own questions and areas to research during this topic.  Following a class discussion they worked individually, or in pairs, to decide on what they would like to explore further during the topic.


Here are a selection of the questions:


  • Finley - How did the evidence Charles Darwin collected prove his theory was right?
  • Charlotte - What inspired Charles Darwin to become a scientist?
  • Harry - How far away are the Galapagos Islands?
  • Evie - If scientists can clone animals, why don't they save endangered species?
  • Annabelle - What is natural selection?
  • Gabby - What evidence did Charles Darwin have to support his theory?
  • What is adaptation?
  • What animals did Charles Darwin discover on the Galapagos Islands?


These questions, and more, have formed the basis of our work this term. They have been turned into whole-class tasks or 'Missions' that the children have worked on independently.
