Y6 The Evolution of the Horse

Pupils learn that evolution is a scientific theory used by biologists to explain how living things changed over a long time, and how they have come to be the way they are today. Pupils look at the theory of evolution when it is applied to the horse.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution
  • NaG - pupils should also appreciate that variation in offspring over time can make animals more or less able to survive in particular environments
  • WS - pupils might analyse the advantages and disadvantages of specific adaptations
