Hello every one. This week we are going to be looking at birds. What they eat, watching how eggs hatch and how you can make a birds nest. I am looking forward to see your lovely photos and videos. I hope you enjoy the activities this week.
Complete the assigned tasks. Play a guessing game. Use descriptive language to describe a bird.
Maths: Recognition of numbers and Making marks to record collections of quantity.
Phonics: Sound ee
We have looked at the sound ai in phase three phonics. Know we are going to learn the sound ee.
Pour some seeds into a tray and use a feather to write the sound ee.
Can you write words with ee in them? Here are some examples. Seed, tree, tweet, see, bee, sleep.
Make binoculars to go bird watching in your garden. You have to be very quiet and look very closely. What can you see them doing. Don't worry if you cant spot many birds. As you have been still for some time, may be you would like to get busy moving. Come and show me some yoga moves. There are some examples below.
Which bird can you make?

Build a bird's nest
How about build your very own birds nest. The leaves you had collected in your maths activity can be used to make a birds nests.
You will need
Play dough. Mould the play dough inside the shape of a bowl to create the shape of a nest
Feathers (if you find any)
Moss (if you find any)
Leaf mini beats
With the leaves you have collected, can you create your own mini beast and write the name of the mini beast you have chosen. Or you can do some leaf printing of all the different leaves you have found. I would love to see how clever and creative you are.
Make a bird puppet
Sing along to the song Two Little Dickie Birds, using the template puppet below. You can decorate your puppet as you like. Different colours or patterns. Or you can make your own.
