It is not long now before we commence our fun learning during BIRD WEEK. The children will be involved in many cross curricular activities ranging from creating birds in art, doing surveys and producing graphs, writing bird poems, stories and fact files and I am sure the highlight of the week will be the visit from EAGLE HEIGHTS.
Meanwhile, we are working hard to encourage as many birds to visit our school with the our wonderful array of new bird feeders. Thank you to everyone who has made one. I was delighted to see so many entries. The winners will be announced next week.
Thank you also to the families who did the Big Garden Birdwatch survey last weekend. I will be sending your sightings off to the RSPB which will help them with their very important research. Next week, we will be surveying the birds that visit St Johns too!
Children in Year 4 and 6 were invited to write fact files about some of the birds they saw in their gardens. Their work is beautiful and is now on display between in the corridor between Year 4 and 6.
On a lighter note: next week we would love the children to bring in some of their funniest birdie jokes to add to our ” Egg-cellent yolks wall”. Teachers will be adding their “cracking” jokes too! Egg-stremely funny jokes will be egg-statically received.
