Inspired by the RSPB's 'Great Garden Birdwatch/Big Schools' Birdwatch'.

Initially, our Reception class enjoyed some bird watching. This was followed by careful drawings of the birds they had been trying to spot. They focused on the size and shape and then used oil pastels for the first time to highlight the wonderful colours and patterns they could see on the birds. To create the background for the class collage, they added white paint to create lighter shades of colour and enjoyed using sponges and rollers to make an outdoor scene.
