Richard Hale Science

On Thursday 26th November, Mrs Bayliss visited Year 6 to talk to them about evolution and inheritance. Inheritance is how we inherit (gain) characteristics from our parents, e.g. being able to roll our tongue or our hair and eye colour. We learnt about DNA, chromosomes and genetics – very technical. It was fascinating to see some of the science behind who we are. Did you know – your earlobe type is also determined by your genes?
