Join me on Zoom at 11:30  where we will begin looking at our new writing focus for the week. By the end of the week, you will have created your very own spy! Someone to work alongside Alex Rider! Today we are going to look at what makes a good spy bio using the Alex Rider website.


We have been learning about biomes around the world looking at how their location affects the human and physical features of that place. Last week you created a poster about one of the biomes. Today I want you to either finish your project on your chosen biome or choose another biome from the following list: Desert, Grasslands, Savanna Tundra, Tropical Rainforest, Temperate Forest, Taiga.
We want you to explain the key features of your chosen biome including the climate, precipitation, flora and fauna and any other interesting facts.
How you choose to present your work is up to you! You might make a poster, make a PowerPoint, create a fact file or even build a biome using craft materials with labels showing your knowledge. Please upload an image of your work onto dojo.
