New EYFS Starters 2020/21

The Dogs trust

The Dogs trust

Today, Year 5 and 6 were privileged to have spent some time with Sarah Saunders from The Dogs Trust, taking part in a science: Evolution Workshop and a history: Dogs in War Workshop.

How did the Chihuahua and the Great Dane both evolve from the Grey Wolf? In this fascinating topic Year 6 explored evolution, selective breeding and how certain adaptations were advantageous for survival.

Year 5 then learned how dogs helped humans in both world wars, identified dogs’ senses and began to understand why this made them good at certain jobs…or even better than humans at some tasks!


We would like to thank Sarah for coming into school and sharing all of her wisdom and enthusiasm. Till next year!
