Welcome to Year 6! 
Class 13


Evolution and Inheritance

This term we have been learning about inheritance and what qualities we have inherited from our parents.  We visited Abingdon Boys' school to carry out some investigations into DNA.

 

We dropped iodine onto a layer of onion skin so we could see the cells under the microscope.
