Birdwatching with Lower Prep!

The Lower Prep children recently enjoyed a story about the migration of birds. This led them to thinking about how the birds, who stay here in our gardens and near our school, manage to find food in the winter. They got to work making bird feeders, using fir cones and filling them with a mixture of fat and seeds that a variety of birds would like to eat. On their Nature Walk last week, the children carried their bird feeders carefully to an area where they have observed different birds on previous Nature Walks. By watching and listening, the children were able to identify the bushes and trees where there were birds, and then carefully hang up their bird feeders there.
