Concentrating on Birds

This session we have been concentrating on birds; first of all predator birds of prey in our games, discussing owls, hawks and other raptors and what characteristics they share, then the nests they might build in a woodland habitat.

We built ourselves a giant nest we could all fit in, lining it with soft comfy leaves. Then we imagined ourselves as noisy, hungry chicks before sitting still and listening to see how many real birds we could hear around us.

Next we looked around for a special place and each built our own little nest. When we were finished, we gathered around each one to see and hear what everybody else had done.
