RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch.
Reception and Nursery have learning about birds this week ready to do the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch. They have been learning how to identify each bird and what their feathers help to do. We have been making pinecone bird feeders which the children have loved making and hanging them up for the birds. We have also been using binoculars to see what birds are coming into our forest school area.
As well as this the children have been exploring other areas and learning new skills: climbing and moving up and down grass hill, making music with sticks and logs, playing and exploring in the mud kitchen, measuring sticks and developing their confidence and abilities to climb safely and using our strength and problem solving skills to guide a cart of bird food across forest school area avoiding any obstacles.
Forest School Allotment
The children in nursery, reception and Year 2 have been helping pick the vegetables they have grown in the forest school allotment. They helped plant, water and then dig up potatoes and beetroot.
