In Reception we have been studying birds and the children have been encouraged to think about how a bird copes with winter.
We have talked about nest building and how a bird can make a nest using only its beak. The children were offered the opportunity to make their own nests in groups, using a set of short tongs to act as a beak. Not as easy as it sounds!
They had to think of where would be safe and appropriate to build their nests as well as what materials they could use. The resulting discussions and creations were quite amazing. It was agreed that birds are pretty special!
