Topic – Birds

This week the children will be counting birds, doing some bird watching in the garden, making edible birds nests and hearing lots of stories relating to birds.

Ideas at home include: reading fiction and non-fiction books about birds; have a go at making some binoculars out of two cardboard tubes stuck together and then do some bird watching in your own garden. If the birds need some encouragement to come into your garden, you could leave some seeds out for them. Then whilst watching, and counting the birds, you could eat your own birds nest! (You just need shredded wheat mixed with melted chocolate, topped with mini eggs and some cup cases to put the mixture in – enjoy!)

If you have number cards, or books with numbers in, do some number recognition with your child/children.

My Nametags

In order to reduce lost property / clothing or items ending up in the wrong bag, we would highly recommend using ‘My Nametags’, and not only that, but ‘My Nametags’ will give Noah’s Ark 24% of each order. Here’s how you do it:

  • Go online www.MyNametags.com

  • Follow the simple steps on their website to create your labels from thousands of possible design options. When you are happy with your choice, you should proceed to the checkout where you will be asked to enter our school id (12551).
