Week beginning 2nd October
In our Science lesson this week, the children had a wonderful time learning about the adaptation of Charles Darwin’s finches. They carried out group investigations to determine which type of beak was better suited to pick up different types of bird food. Tongs, tweezers and pegs represented the different beak shapes and these were used to pick up as many sunflower seeds, wooden balls, peanuts and elastic bands (representing worms) as possible in 30 seconds. Subsequently, the children used their results to determine which shaped beak was the most suitable for each food type.
