London, May 24 (ANI): A third of Brit children do not know Charles Darwin was British, a new survey claims.

The study, commissioned by the national schools singing programme Sing Up, found that one in seven kids believed he was American.

Also, more than one in four think the Battle of Trafalgar was part of the English Civil War.

The survey was commissioned to mark Sing Up's new School Trip Singalong, which will see the organisation partner with seven British attractions to help bring history to life through new songs.

"Everyone remembers their favourite school trip and those noisy minibus and coach singalongs," the Telegraph quoted Howard Goodall, National Singing Ambassador and composer, as saying.

He added: "Singing on the bus is a great way to engage children in learning in a fun, exciting way, and there is a wealth of evidence which shows that singing aids memory, improves concentration and educational development." (ANI)
