Moth Day 2021

As part of our evolution and inheritance work in Science we have spent today celebrating “Moth Day”. The stimulus for this was the text ‘Moth’ by Isabel Thomas and with lovely illustrations by Daniel Egneus.

our text of the day.

We used the story to help us track the stages of adaptation of the peppered moth (Biston betularia).

This afternoon we then looked at a research paper from the University of Manchester which measured moth populations in Leeds. We used their academic data to plot the moth populations. We then drew conclusions from this data and compared with the findings from the paper abstract.

  1. Hello 6H,
    This was a very productive day 6H! Great work everyone!

    Were there any moth eggs in the trees this year, at the bottom end of the playground like previous years? It’s an amazing sight. I think they are moth eggs, but I could be wrong.

    Enjoy the rest of your day!
    Mrs Robottom
