Big Garden Watch

Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well.

We are taking part in the Big Garden Watch 2021.

This is a national survey of British wildlife in your own garden.

I wonder what you can spot?

I have included a worksheet that you can use to help identify what birds you can see from your garden.

Mrs McDonald has a poem for us.

Round and Round the garden

Birds are flying high

1 flap, 2 flaps.

What will you spy?

Can you practice this at home?

I wonder what you will spy?


We made some birdfeeders in the ECC.

We have prepared packs for you to take part in at home too

These will be available from the ECC on Thursday (28th) and Friday (29th) at the following times 9.15 – 11.30 or 1.15 – 2.30pm.

Please call 01563 532300 prior to arriving and we will arrange a safe handover.

Happy New Year from all of us at Crosshouse ECC.

Welcome to our new blog.

We will be posting activity ideas and helpful information to help whilst at home during this time.

We would like to know what your favourite  
present from Santa was?

Can you draw a picture of this and email it to Mrs McWhinnie.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing them. 😃



With us all being at home a lot more,  it is a great time to wrap up and explore the outdoors.
