Autumn 2 IPC PROJECT: Out Of Africa Evolution and inheritance

The Big Idea

First there was the big bang! Then life began on Earth 3.8 billion years ago. But when did humans arrive and where did we come from? If we can find out the answer to these questions perhaps we can figure out where we are heading in the future…

    • We will know:

    • How life began in the sea
    • How fossils provide information about living things from the past
    • Why the dinosaurs died out
    • How plants and animals reproduce
    • How living things evolve and change over time
    • How plants and animals are adapted to their environment
    • We will be developing our understanding of:

    •  Whether there might be life on other planets
    • The classification of plants and animals

    We will know:

    •  What foods early humans ate, grew and cooked

    We will be developing our understanding of:

    •  How superbugs evolve and spread around the world
  • IN Maths And English :


    We will know

    • How to solve long division using a grid
    • How to draw a pie chart

    How to convert between fractions, percentages 


    We will be developing our descriptive writing skills by creating our own fictional short story. We will be applying our knowledge of grammar, punctuation and spelling to help us.
