This week the children were learning about the birds that live in their local environment. The children had 2 activities . 
Activity one:
They found pictures of common garden birds hidden around the playground then matched them up with the bird names.
Activity two:
The children made bird feeders. They threaded the string through a hole in their container, then filled the mixing bowl with mixed bird feed. We talked about the different seeds and how it felt when we put our hands in the bowl. The children then stirred in the lard and Mrs Wells gave it a good mix with her hands, YUK ! The children then carefully spooned the mixture  into their containers. 
Hopefully lots of the children will take part in the RSPB Big Bird watch this week and I look forward to seeing their spotting sheets next week.
