Ruby Year 4 Wednesday 25th March


I’d like you to spend a bit of time looking out of your window. What can you see. I want you to make a list of 30 different nouns (names of objects or things) that you can see from your window. Then find a different adjective ( word that describes the noun) to go with each noun.

For example your noun might be daffodil and your adjective might be golden.

Darwin’s Delights

We’re going to start our Innovate week now.

Future humans

Close your eyes and imagine you’ve been catapulted far into the future. You’re face to face with a human race that has gone through thousands of years of evolution. Everything is different. The environment has changed. Society has changed. Nothing looks the same. The world as you know it has changed and moved on, so how are you going to survive? What will you need in this new world?

It’s time to meet your future self.

Work through the Steps one at a time. I’ll just give you the first 3 steps today and add some more tomorrow.

Step 1) What do you think the world will be like in thousands of years? Write down your own prediction but also ask people in you house what they think and write down there ideas as well.

Step 2) What factors do you think will have the greatest influence on human evolution? Will it be climate change, population size, food sources, technology, medicine, selective breeding or something else? What do you think and why?

Step 3) Choose the factor that you think will be most influential and sketch out some ideas for how this might affect the human form. Think about how humans might adapt to suit the changing environment.
