Summer Week 5 Biomes (commencing 18th May)

UPDATE - It has been brought to our attenetion that some of the resources (e.g. activated charcoal / spanish moss) 'required' to make the rainforest biome are not everyday household items. Please do not feel the need to buy anything. The activated charcoal acts as a natural water filter but is far from vital, children could always create the biome and then add the charcoal to it when they return to school. In terms of 'spanish moss' I believe children last year just used mossy grass. Remember, if you have any questions or concerns about the work set you can email us at year5@st-michaels.enfield.sch.uk 

This week we are suggesting a project based week on the subject of 'biomes'. You can follow the timetable below and use the attachments on the bottom of this page which have been numbered and ordered.

Alternatively, 'standard' lessons for English and Maths can be found on BBC bitesize:
