Imagine it is the first day of the school holidays.

You ask your mum or dad or friend or gran or ... whether you can go to play in the park today.

What sorts of things might they say in reply?

Can you pick out the words which tell you how likely is it that you will actually go to the park in each case?

Can you put these words in an order from 'never' at one end to 'yes' at the other?

We would love to see your line of words.
