Fascinating talk about Evolution raises many questions
Mr Hughes came into school to talk to the juniors all about Evolution. With the help of his children who are pupils in the junior class, he began with what evolution is and what BIG questions it generates; why is there evolution and were we apes? He explained the theory of Charles Darwin and linked the Bible with evolution. A huge poster about the Tree of Life had children asking many questions. Mr Hughes brought in some fossils and dinosaurs and the children were very interested in learning how birds were first a cross between a dinosaur and a bird, before they branched off into their own species. This led on to platypus, which are a cross of a duck and a reptile and children enjoyed making their own platypus out of play dough to take home.
