Evolution and Inheritance in Science

This term, Year 6 are learning about Evolution and Inheritance in Science. We have been answering the question "Why do offspring look different from their parents?" by looking at how genetics are passed on through DNA in our cells. We discussed the difference between inherited and environmental features and how this may vary even within the same family.

To test out our theories, we created the offspring of Mr Men and Little Miss characters by identifying what physical features could be inherited. See if you can figure out who the parents of our new characters are!
