Nature Study (made easy) – Birds

February 11, 2012

Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself,

where she may lay her young

Psalm 84:3

Mum reads aloud our primary ‘living book’

We narrate

We go on walks and watch birds

We sketch

We identify

We create visual aids for our learning cabin

We mark off birds we see in our garden

We learn about wing feathers pressing down on the air and make our own ‘wings’

We touch feathers (ok, so not real ones!)

We look at other books that Mum puts around the cabin

”Gone were but the Winter,
Come were but the Spring,
I would go to a covert
Where the birds sing.”

Christina Rossetti
