We really enjoyed making bird feeders.
Junk modelling mini beasts:
Identifying animals through their droppings:
Eco club had a fantastic session learning about how to identify an animal through their droppings. Great conversation about what animals eat and where they live.
After School Club have been exploring the ECO Garden this afternoon, they went bird watching and they put there bird feeders out they made yesterday.
We have been designing mobiles for the Eco Garden. The children will use twigs, string and their pictures they have made as well as bottle tops to create a wind charm affect.
Our fantastic Eco Garden in the mist:
Eco club helping tidy up the Eco Garden.
The children have made some tree faces and a sign for the gate down to the Eco garden. We completed these one of the evenings it was far to wet to go out. Otherwise we would have put the material onto the bark of the tree to make the faces.
Parent day in the Eco Garden:
A great big thank you to all who came along to help on the very cold and wet day. We made a huge amount of progress. We are luck enough to have a parent to repair the wooden structure. Further work will be going on through this year and into the next.
Special treat for Eco Club:
Hot chocolate as a treat for all of their hard work!
Reception enjoying the outdoors:
Finding twigs to compare size, twigs that look like numbers and children getting close to nature.
The children in Eco club have been working really hard gardening to ensure the veg boxes are clear of grass and weeds.
