Welcome toThrybergh Fullerton C of E Primary Academy

Class 5 - Mrs Lowry

                                                         Blood Heart

Dear Parent / Carer,

 

Welcome back to the Summer term.  Despite having to learn remotely last term the children were absolutely incredible and worked hard to do the best they could and learn all about our topic on the heart and the circulation system.  They worked hard, were resilient and tried their best producing some excellent pieces of work under difficult circumstances.  Your support as always was very much appreciated and the children have greatly benefited from having you support them as you did.    Now it’s time to look forward, so let’s take a look at what we will be doing this term!

 

This term our topic is Darwin’s Delights. 

 

We’re off on an exciting expedition with Charles Darwin and his crew on HMS Beagle. We will trace his route across the vast ocean? Stop at the magical Galápagos Islands to see the amazing species that helped Charles Darwin to develop his theory of evolution by natural selection. Do you know what’s so special about a lava lizard, or why the blue-footed booby has blue feet? See how animals adapt to their environments over time and meet some of the world’s greatest explorers and naturalists. Imagine how humans will evolve in millions of years. It’s a scary thought. Ready to trace the origin of species? Let’s set sail.
