Five activity ideas on separate sheets to accompany the RSPB’s ‘Big Schools’ Birdwatch’. Said activities comprise the following:
The parts of a bird
Crumble pastry maggots (bird food recipe)
Pine cone lardy seed feeders
Suet and nut log (D&T activity)
The RSPB’s Big Schools’ Birdwatch aims to get you and your children closer to the birds visiting your school or nursery. Spend one lesson or lunchtime counting the birds that visit your grounds or local outdoor space, and help contribute to a country-wide scientific endeavour. Hopefully you’ll have fun taking part, too!
The Big Schools’ Birdwatch will take place between 4 January and 12 February 2016. Register at rspb.org.uk/schoolswatch and you’ll be sent a free ID resource.
