Year 5 design their own mini ecosystems.
Biodiversity, recycling and dexterity all played a part, as Year 5 immersed themselves in their study of Biodiversity.
The students have been learning about the delicate balance that is present in our ecosystems around the world. With this in mind, Year 5 constructed their own perfectly balanced ecosystems (known as biomes), taking account of the ground, the weather, the habitats they wanted to represent in their chosen climate.
The use of sustainable materials brings an added layer of environmental responsibility, as Year 5 considered how they could formulate their biomes with the materials they had.
