Year 6   Home Learning 15.2.19

Due: Monday 4.3.19

Following on from the learning in class about the life cycles of living things, your task is to investigate and present the life cycles of 2 different organisms.

  1. You should choose one animal (e.g. a mammal, insect, reptile or fish) and one plant (e.g. that grows on the land or in the sea or river).

Present your work neatly, with clear explanations, drawings or printed pictures of your chosen animal and plant, and with diagrams you have drawn to support your explanation.

  1. Find out what these terms mean and give your own explanations of how they do or do not link to the life cycles of your chosen organisms:
  • genes
  • DNA
  • inherit (inheritance)
  • survival

Year 6 Topic Launch – The Bug Man comes to Edmund Waller

We were thrilled to launch our new topic, The Cycle of Life, by welcoming Andy to our school. He explained how various animals have adapted to their environment over time, introducing us to Darwin’s theory of evolution.

We can’t wait to find out more on our educational visit to the Natural History Museum on Friday!
