Week beginning 29th June

Science - Evolution and Inheritance

A unit of Year Six work which we began way back in March was 'Evolution and Inheritance'.

Today I would like you to think about the traits and physical characteristics you have inherited from your family - Do you have your Aunt's musical talent or your Granddad's talent for football... Do you look like your uncle or your Great-Nana?

1. Look at the PowerPoint presentation below:

Focus specifically on the scientific vocabulary.  Do you understand the terms used?

2. Can you sort the characteristics given into inherited and acquired characteristics?

3. Think about your own family - Which characteristics have you inherited and which characteristics have you acquired?

How are you different to your siblings, if you have any?

How will you record your findings?
