Bird watch

The birds are very busy at this time of year and I am enjoying hearing them singing on my daily walks with my family. I have bird feeders in my garden and am being visited daily by lots of different species. 

 

Everyday I will give you a new bird to look and listen out for. You can try to spot it whilst on walks of it is safe for you to do so, or can look and listen for it from your garden or windows. Perhaps you could draw it in your books and write about it?  You could send pictures of your work, or of you bird spotting to the school office email address  office@holyoakes.sch.worcs.uk

Today's bird is a long tailed tit, and it is one of Mrs Johnson's favourites. I see them on my bird feeders, and I can hear them when I sit in my garden.

At night time long tailed tits snuggle together to keep warm. I love this video of them roosting together at night time.

I wonder if you could draw Mrs Johnson a long tailed tit? Don't forget it's long tail and tiny beak. Send them to office@holyoakes.worcs.sch.uk

Now that we have spotted lots of different birds together I wonder which is your favourite? Perhaps you could draw a picture of your favourite and write about it for Mrs Johnson and Miss Patmore to see? Or you could paint your favourite bird, or make a collage of it. We can 't wait to see your work.
