This year the school has been fortunate to see a new structure 'grow' in our own habitat, an all new outdoor classroom.

Year 5 have been investigating the local habitat to help us to think about what grows there and what lives there. In the future we hope to use our investigations to help us suggest new ideas for the outdoor area. We have study the growth cycles of flowering plants, micro organisms, insects, amphibians and mammals. The work has been very hands on, as you can see from the pictures.

We have noticed that each part of our ecosystem relies on another part in order to survive and thrive, no matter how small or large a part they play. We know that we need to look after our own enviroment carefully. Later on this year we will be thinking about how our ecosystem compares with those found in other parts of the world, especially in the rainforests.
