Survival of the Fittest?
In Autumn Term, our topic is "Surival of the Fittest?" - a learner led enquiry into the life of Charles Darwin, the geographical features of South America, and the classification and evolution of plants and animals.
The children will be conducting lots of investigations and hands on activities in order to answer a series of "Big Questions" linked to the topic.
To kick start our topic, we boarded flight 6R28LM to Brazil, which unfortunately suffered from engine failure, leaving us stranded in the Amazon Rainforest. We had to escape the snakes, build dens for shelter, filter water to make it safe to drink, build rafts to get us across the Amazon river and sketch the wildlife that we discovered.
The children had great fun, using their imaginations to see if they could survive life in the Amazon.
