The Big School's Birdwatch
With the start of lockdown we wanted to do something to do altogether, even though we are apart.
We loved sharing Yuval Zommer's "Big Book of Birds" in school, and learnt all about city birds and how to attract birds into our gardens. We've loved looking at his "Big book of Bugs" and his "Big book of Blooms" back in the summer, and had used them when we planted our sunflowers and found out about butterflies as we got ready to move to Year 1 together.

The children needed to get to know more birds so they could recognise them as we did the RSPB Big school bird watch. We watched Matt Sewell's fantastic "How to draw birds" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIOyUVHTPX8
and the children had a great afternoon drawing and painting blue tits. We found out more about birds and labelled them.
