This afternoon at Forest School Paddington class have been focusing on birds and building nests. We talked about how some birds will be building nests ready to protect their eggs now that we are in Spring.
We talked about what materials the birds would collect from around the woods to build their nests to make them cosy and safe. I then set the children a challenge to make their own bird nest collage pictures on paper plates.
We used paint for the background and then collected materials from around the woods to make the nest.
The beautiful bluebells are out in grangewood park and I would love to take Paddington class over to see them this Wednesday.
However we currently have no parent helpers which makes it difficult to take the children offsite.
If you can help this week, Wednesday 26th April, 1.00-3.15pm, then please speak to Mrs Chamberlain ASAP.
We had a lovely sunny afternoon at Forest School today, and Matilda class enjoyed a walk down to Grangewood park to admire the new bluebells. They were very surprised at just how many there were!
We spent some quiet time today sitting and observing the bluebells, looking closely at the details. Everyone then had a go at drawing what they could see and labelled the plant using the correct vocabulary.
We discussed the different parts of a plant and what they do.
Have you found any bluebells growing in your garden or near your home?
