Mae rhaid cynnwys ARW ym mhob ’30 Diwrnod Gwyllt’, ac ni fydd eleni’n eithriad. Bore hyfryd heddiw yn Ysgol Gynradd Gnoll yng Nghastell Nedd. Stori arwr cenedlaethol a rhyngwladol i blant ar ei stepen drws.
This year’s ’30 Days Wild’ has the obligatory tip of the hat to ARW. What made this year different is that the incredible story of Alfred Russel Wallace was shared this morning with his local community in Gnoll Primary School, Neath.
Whilst doing some research updates for the performance, I found myself contributing to my own research on this BBC article
But years 5 and 6 have been undertaking their own research by studying evolution and Alfred Russel Wallace this year. After the performance, we had a Q & A and their questions were amazing.
“Why did he write to Charles Darwin after discovering the theory?”
“Why did he like butterflies?”
“Why did he collect so many beetles?”
“What was his rarest discovery?”
“How many specimens did he collect? I read in a book that it was 25, 566”
To be able to share the story again, and to be able to receive so many wonderful questions made it a wild and memorable Day 14 for 30 Days Wild.
