In today’s climate, hopping on a plane and heading to the Serengeti for a safari is not an option! We can, however, bring the Serengeti to us. In what has become an embedded creative activity in Year 9 Geography, students were tasked with constructing a biome in one lesson, identifying key flora, fauna and climatic variations within their chosen environment. They then needed to simulate a natural weather event that could interrupt food production within their biome. We had sandstorms, artic blizzards and even a cotton wool tornado! The standard of this term’s entries was particularly high and a shining example of the brilliant creativity of our Year 9 cohort.
