Dear Mr Darwin………………

This week year 2 wrote letters of application to Mr Charles Darwin because they wanted to join his ship HMS Beagle on its amazing journey around the world! Everyone dressed up and took on the role of a person that may’ve lived 200 years ago. They all wrote enthusiastically, trying to persuade Mr Darwin they were perfect for the job of crew member on-board!  Who would you choose?

Richard, a baker aged 20 from the Isle of Wight?

Jane, a servant, aged 20 from London.

Florence, a maid aged 15 from London?

Or Frank, a policeman aged 15 from Sheffield?
