Evolution is now a part of the Year 6 primary science curriculum and that’s where we come in. We offer free resources and professional development workshops to help teachers bring these tricky concepts to life through hands-on investigations and activities.
There are also sections which address common concerns teachers have and ideas about ways to respond to children’s questions.
For details about posters, one-day events for children and CPD workshop, please look at our Events and Resources page
The National Curriculum for Science Key Stage 2 states that under the ‘Evolution and Inheritance’ module pupils should be taught to:
- Recognise that living things have changed over time and that fossils provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago.
- Recognise that living things produce offspring of the same kind, but normally offspring vary and are not identical to their parents.
- Identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution.
