We serve god, when we work and play together


Week 1: Use the tree & plant hunt sheets to see how many you can safely spot in your garden/local area. If you prefer, this can also be done via street view on google maps using an area of your choice. Present your findings in the style of a poster (electronic or paper).

Week 2 - can you become a tree and plant fact finder and answer all of the questions?

Week 3 (Summer term - week 1) - seasons. 1. Use the powerpoint link and attached documents to explore the four seasons we experience each year. 2. Demonstrate what you know about the 4 seasons by using the tree templates to draw what you believe the tree would look like during each season. 3. Write a few sentences about each tree. Explain how you believe the tree would look during that season and tell me about anything else you know that occurs within nature at this time.
