Year 6 have been learning about biomes around the world- studying the different landscapes, climates, fauna and floras, population and habitats in our IPC topic called ‘What Does Our World Look Like?’
We visited Ilkley Moor with the kind assistance of the Friends of Ilkley Moor who talked to us all about the rocks, soil and climate of the moor. Did you know that on the moor there are two types of micro biome and a plastic bag will take over 1000 years to biodegrade?
In DT we had fun sewing as we designed a slipper that would be appropriate to wear in the region of a chosen biome. We then worked out a cost for our slippers thinking about materials, labour, packaging, exportation and advertisement of the products before coming to a profitable overall cost- what a lot of maths that took!
Please look at some of our adverts which include photographs of our actual slippers.
