This half term we started our science unit exploring the term ‘inheritance‘.
We then explored our own inherited characteristics VS acquired characteristics. We chose characters from Mr Men and Miss little and drew an example of how their children could look, inheriting characteristics from both parents.
We learnt some super scientific vocabulary to further develop our learning such as nucleus/ DNA and chromosomes (chrom o somes)
Extracting Strawberry 🍓 DNA 🧬
Which characteristics have you inherited from your parents? How are your inherited characteristics are different to your acquired characteristics?
Where is DNA located and what does it carry ?
