This fits under our theme of the year of Systems as we explore different ecosystems work and how the animals and plants interact with each other.

 Things we are learning are:
- what an ecosystem is
- the difference between Biotic and Abiotic Factors
- basic needs of a living thing
- the scales of an ecosystem (micro, messo and biome)
- levels of organisation in an ecosystem
- what autotrophs and heterotrophs are and the types of heterotrophs
- what food chains and food webs are
- Trophic levels of a food chain

 Students will then complete their own inquiries on an area of interest. There will be an extra focusing on their presentation skills this term.
