1st Week - Bird Watching and nest making!

After playing circle games such as 'Duck, duck, goose' and 'Fruit bowl' the children played '1,2,3 where are you?' They enjoyed taking in turns to count and find their friends whilst learning the response of 'We're over here!' to keep safe.
 
One child noticed the giant birds nest in the tree, so we all lay on our backs to take a look up and find it. I asked, 'I wonder how a bird makes a nest?' and they all set off to create their own nests out of sticks. Some children worked independently and others worked as a team.
Another child explained how they were making the middle of the nest 'soft' for the babies and packed it with grass and flowers - so the babies didn't get hurt!
 
We had a good first session exploring our surroundings.
