One of our home link challenges this year was to design and make a bird feeder or nest box. A blue tit is now nesting in one in our class garden and pinching fluff from the swing ball for it's nest!
It is national Walk to School Week next week. It would be great if all the children have a chance to walk or cycle to school at least once a week. Even if you only do part of the journey, or park at the Triangle or Shielbridge Hall and walk, scoot or cycle the rest of the way. Or park in the layby opposite the lochan and walk through Millennium woods? the forecast is good so let's get the children outside and having fun walking or cycling to school!
For a Friday afternoon activity some of us chose to make hedgehog homes with Donald. We showed the nursery and explained how we made them, then we looked for good places to put them.
Ask someone to take a picture of you walking to school this week and we'll see if we can get everyone's picture on the blog by Friday!! Just email your picture to firstname.lastname@example.org. Even if you can't walk the whole way because it is too far see if you can walk a bit of it.
Paul, Heather and Cain visited this week and told us all about Wildcats and that there aren't many pure wildcats left. We were very interested and inspired by them and what they told us and we are going to try and help save the pure wildcats from extinction! Here's the first instalment of this new adventure...
