Alfred Russel Wallace. Charles Darwin. Mary Anning. All are significant scientists from the world of natural sciences that we have been investigating this term. Not only have we discussed their lives and achievements, but also the impact they had on the world of science and how they were recognised at the time – as well as nowadays – in different ways.
We consolidated our learning on multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 and recapped how to calculate area and perimeter in maths. This included problem solving, the sheets from which can be found below.
We finished off our week with a drama session as a year group, led by Dr Biddulph. We took ourselves back in time to the nineteenth century and imagined the voyage of a budding naturalist: planning, packing and embarking on our journey.
