Making Fantastic Bird Feeders

This week Year 2 have been making some fantastic bird feeders to encourage the birds to come to our school grounds ready for the Big Schools' Bird Watch. 

Using tools

Year 4 have been safely using peelers to whittle wood and make some Christmas decorations.  They also enjoyed playing a hiding game called Closer, Closer.

Leaf ID and being creative with leaves

Year 4 have enjoyed identifying trees using their leaves and using the leaves to make faces, people and animals.  They have also listened to the story of The Green Man and used clay to make faces in the trees.

Fantastic Teamwork

Year 6 have been showing their fantastic listening and teamwork skills by making an obstacle course using loose parts, working as a team to transport a ball from one side of the forest school site to another using drain pipes and playing the 'This is not a stick' game.

Climbing Trees and Clay Faces

Year 4 have been looking for faces in the trees and using clay to design their own tree faces.  Some children even made their own hedgehogs.  They have had fun balancing on the slackline and climbing trees to see the world from a bird's eye view.
