Our final day of the Big Garden Birdwatch with the RSPB. We finished the week with a lovely walk around the school grounds, using our binoculars. What did you see? – “birds, birds nest, car and lorry” What was the birds nest made of? – “sticks, eggs, mud, straw and worms” Where will we hang our bird food? – “in the tree”
Day two of Big Garden Birdwatch – paper plate birds. Continuing with our birdwatch we spoke about where birds live ‘in trees’ and ‘they sleep in nests’. What do birds look like ‘they have eyes, wings and feathers’. Why do they eat worms – ‘because they are hungry’
Day one of Big Garden Birdwatch – we made bird feeders using orange skins, yoghurt pots and pine cones. We talked about why we feed birds and what food birds eat.
When making the food we talked about how it felt, how it smelt and what it looked like. This is what the children said “It felt squishy, hard, warm and sticky” ” It smelt like cheese, ice cream, crackers, butter” “The lard looked like butter and glue”
Learning through play – developing our fine motor skills through mark making and building
Friday morning was very foggy and the children couldn’t see the school field. We wrapped up in our coats, hats and mittens put on our wellies and off we went for a walk. We practised road safety by looking both ways. We found some flowers that were wet and felt soft. We listened to different sounds such as birds, cars and dogs. We spotted a bus. Then the fog started to clear and we could see much better.
Our first week back – Happy New Year to you all!! We’ve come back bursting with energy and great imaginations. We’re loving super heroes- making masks and back packs!, making dinosaur and animal worlds, painting, birthday cakes with playdough, water play, parachute play and so much more.
Once again can I thank all of Pre-school staff for our recent Ofsted OUTSTANDING rating. As well as thank you to our families (past & present), Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School and most importantly all of our Little Hearts children.
