Evolution and Inheritance

Evolution and Inheritance

During this term we will learn the following:


  • how animals produce similar offspring
  • how offspring vary
  • recognise that living things change over time
  • recognise that fossils provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago
  • identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways
  • identify that adaptation may lead to evolution


More details of the learning can be found in the Knowledge Organiser below.
