Feed the birds

Hi Moonbeams, I hope you are all well and enjoying the sunny weather!

If you would like to take part in an activity this week with a family member,  I thought it would be nice to feed the birds. I remember you all enjoyed this activity in class.

Activity  – Make a bird feeder

What you need: recycled yoghurt pot, string, lard / peanut butter, bird seeds

  1. Make a hole in the bottom of the yoghurt pot.
  2. Feed a loop of string through the hole and tie a knot inside.
  3. Pour the lard/peanut butter and seeds into a bowl and mix together with a spoon or your hands.
  4. Scoop the mixture into the yoghurt pot and place in the fridge for 2 hours.
  5.  Hang the pot on a tree branch and watch the birds eat it.
  6. Listen to Mr Tumble Dicky birds on You tube and try some of the signs.

Hi Moonbeams!

Hi Brayden, Caden, David, Lee, Ollie and Reagan

We are missing you all very much but we hope you are all happy and having lots of fun at home with your family.

We all have a little message for you …

Hi it’s Miss Mikolajczak here – Its a very sunny day today and I have been outside in my garden watering the plants and playing with Penny the dog, she likes it when I throw the ball and she has to run to catch it. I’ve been busy cooking some yummy meals too like spaghetti bolognese and I even made burgers on the BBQ outside.

Hi it’s Mrs McLaughlin here – I have been very busy playing at being the teacher to my 4 children and doing lots of hard work. We have been baking chocolate cakes, brownies and Mars bar cake. I have been trying hard to go for a big long walk early every morning and I have also been doing some gardening in the sunshine.

Hi its Miss Higgins here – I have been enjoying making lots of nice meals, playing games with my daughter and doing some dancing in the living room.

Hi its Mrs Hunter – I have been keeping busy cleaning the house and emptying all of my cupboards. I have been to Tesco to buy my shopping and I have been listening to my daughter practicing her singing and playing the Ukulele (which looks like a small guitar).

 

Our Theme this term is The Great Outdoors so we were going to be doing lots of activities in the garden. Here are a few ideas if you wish to do them with your children…

 

  1. Prepare and enjoy a Picnic in the garden
  2.  Fun with water

3. Remember to stay safe in the sun
