How to make a nest!

The children in Year One have had a very exciting afternoon! We have been making birds nests. We thought about what materials we would need for our nest and what techniques we could use to help shape the nest and make it comfortable for potential winged visitors! The children used a selection of outdoor materials including sticks, mud, twigs, grass and leaves to make their nests. They used weaving techniques to hold their nests together and discussed the purpose of the materials they used. The results were amazing!
