IGCSE BIOLOGY GENETICS

Our biological science is based on the specification of Edexcel for their Biology IGCSE.  My goal is to very gradually work through the specification with the hope of digging a little deeper than is required and letting the children follow areas of interest.  I aim to make this study as hands on as possible and as relevant to the children’s own lives as possible.

This post will eventually contain all my Genetics related posts, which I will add as I post them.
