There’s a light box and some gems. Some of the gems are translucent and others are opaque. The children have explored the gems and noticed that they are either see through or dark. Then they’ve used the gems to make patterns and pictures.
Because it’s starting to get colder and there are no berries for the birds we decided to open up conversations about winter and wildlife by making seed cakes. We love to watch the birds that visit he nursery garden and hopefully the seed cakes will encourage more birds to come .
We explored the ingredients and learnt about some of the things that birds like to eat.
Then we prepared the string and the cake cases so that it would all be held together.
Next we mixed all the ingredients together and squashed it into seed cakes.
Once we had formed the cakes we put them in a cold place, the fridge and then when they were ready we hung them in the tree.
Afterwards we drew some pictures of birds that might come to our garden!
