Happy  Birthday Caelan 

Friday July 10th  

                R.E.: in the story Jesus told in Matthew Chapter 13, birds could come, be safe and make their nests in the huge tree.

        Geography: explorer Dr. Julian Bayliss is a Geography teacher at my old university.

                                                                    He wanted to explore the Lost Forest of Mount Mabu.

                                                                    He asked people who live near by to help him.

                                               Watch the video they recorded.


            Pretend Dr Julian Bayliss wrote to you to ask you to help him explore the Lost Forest of Mount Mabu.

                                               What would you write and tell him he might find?

            You could start your letter:


Dear Dr Julian Bayliss,

We might find  . . . . . . . on the forest floor and . .. . . in the Under storey.

You might see . . . . .  in the canopy.
