Good morning everyone!
Today is Wednesday 20th May and the forecast is predicting another sunny day!
Q: What type of tree fits in your hand?
A: A palm tree!
I hope you enjoy the activities that I have set for you today.
Let us start our day with a prayer:
Our Father, who art in Heaven,
hallowed be Thy name,
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done
on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day, our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those that trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Over the next week, you are going to plan and write a non-chronological report on trees. We are going to put together all of the information we have learnt into one information text. Do you remember the report we planned and wrote on wolves? The tree report will be written in just the same way.
This project will take you all of the half term so take your time.
