Reception class have been discussing the different creatures that share our woodland area. They understand that it is their habitat and that we are lucky to be able to use it. To say thankyou to the birds we decided to make them a treat – especially as their food is starting to become hard to find.
The children knew that birds like to eat worms and seeds. We used the fire to help us to heat up solid lard. We watched the solid turn into a liquid and then used this as glue to stick seeds to pine cones. The children then hung these from the trees.
