It was 150 years ago today…

I have The Beatles’  ‘Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ rattling through my head right now, but, of course, they were only going for ‘It was 20 years ago today…’

What am I wittering on about, I can (quite justifiably) hear you cry?

It’s 24th November as I write this and I spent the morning with the wonderful year 6 class at St James CE Primary in Rusholme (the very same school who worked with us on the amazing “Museum of Me” project).

In preparation for a visit to the Museum next week to explore the Charles Darwin: Evolution of a Scientist exhibition (more on this in a later post!), we were looking through the newspaper produced by the Museum to support the exhibition. It contains some fascinating information about Darwin’s life (and world events happening at the same time).

I was delighted when one of the class spotted that ‘On the Origin of Species’ was published exactly 150 years ago today.

See? We work with observant children here!
