Understanding the World

This week we have been celebrating Lunar New Year!

We are taking part in the Big Bird Watch. This afternoon we made pine cone bird feeders. The children cut the lard, measured the bird seed and used their hands to mix it all together. We then pushed and patted the mixture into the gaps. We popped them in the fridge to set and hung them in the outdoor area. Next week we will observe and record which bird come to visit. 

This term the children have shown a great interest in Penguins. We have been reading lots of information books and watched some David Attenborough videos to learn all about this type of bird. We then decided to pass our knowledge on to others by creating our own non fiction books. We worked really hard to record all of the sounds we could hear in the words we had chosen to use.
