In this programme, we will use biological science skills to ask questions, find evidence, explore simple models and carry out investigations to develop explanations.
We will discover how living things are suited to their particular habitat and how they respond to environmental changes, both natural and human-induced.
Students will have the opportunity to follow their own interests in producing an adapted animal model.
Understand adaptation is a mutation or genetic change, that helps a plant or animal survive in its environment
Realise that adaptations are a natural occurrence that happen in response to changes in the environment
Know that behavioural changes are the way the organism reacts
Know that structural changes relate to external physical appearance
Know that physiological changes relate to internal body systems
Discover that some adaptations may succeed or fail
