Year One have been learning about Spring time and now know that lots of baby animals are born in Spring.

There is a bird box in the Friendship Garden, where a little bird has laid her eggs. The children decided to help her to feed her babies, by making bird feeders. They researched what common UK wild birds like to eat, then used those ingredients to make their feeders.

The children have hung them in the Friendship garden for the mother blue tit. We hope she likes them!
