Evolution and Inheritance

Building on what they learned about fossils in Year 3, children find out more about how living things have changed over time. They are introduced to the idea that characteristics are passed from parent to their offspring, but that they are not exactly the same. They should also appreciate that variation over time can make animals more or less likely to survive in particular environments (adaptation). Children look at evolution and Charles’ Darwin’s theory of natural selection, as well as palaeontologist Mary Anning’s work with fossils.
