Welcome to “Outdoor Learning & Wildlife” Community Learning team with Mrs Lewis
This year we used our outdoor space to explore pollination, signs of spring and animal habitats. We took part in then Great British Bird Watch and used autumn leaves to identify the trees around our school. We made Christmas decorations using natural materials and created and used ‘story stones’ and ‘journey sticks’.
Find the Tree
Birds, Birds, Birds
We sketched the birds visiting our field and played birdwatch bingo. We now know our Goldfinches from our Greenfinches and our Greenfinches from our Chaffinches.

We also made ‘fat cone’ and ‘cereal stick’ bird feeders to help our feathered friends say ‘Cheerio’ to hunger this winter.
