Gather up, Winterwatchers! Learn some key skills to help you get outdoors and find out more about the birds in your environment with a very special Live Lesson at 11am on the 28th of January 2021.
This cross-curricular programme in partnership with the RSPB and BBC Two's Winterwatch will allow Key Stage 2 pupils to experience the magic of nature in the winter from their classrooms and homes, and arm them with the necessary skills to go out and explore their local wildlife with the Big Schools Birdwatch (for children taking part from school) and the Big Garden Birdwatch (for children taking part with their parents or carers from home).
The Live Lesson can be watched live here at 11am on Thursday 28th January, whether you're at school or at home. Let us know if you'll be watching by emailing your names or school name to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To make it easier for pupils to access remotely, the programme will also be airing on the CBBC channel at the same time.
Mr Fitzgerald would love you to send in the tally chart of birds found in your garden so that he can use it for some maths work.
We're not sure what time period Winterwatch will say for gathering results of birds seen in your garden, but we think a 30 minute period is ideal. Best to go with that!
Your task today is linked to the Bird Watch Survey.
Please research online one British bird and create an attractive Fact file about it.
Make sure you include a drawing or copied picture. (A drawing would be lovely though.)
Include facts about the following: colouring, size, wingspan, habitat, diet, nests, number of young, egg colouring and size. Also any other relevant information.
This could be produced as either a table or sentences - it is up to you.
We are really looking forward to reading these. No doubt we will all learn some facts too.
In the lesson today, you will need to watch two video clips which help to explain how the Torah is used. Make notes about the Torah as you watch.
When you have finished watching the clips, produce a poster which includes as many facts as you can gather about the Torah: what it is, how it is used, when it is used, which special events it is used in. Aim to make it bright and colourful.
Feel free to do extra research if you have time.
We did this singing lesson in school, together with the actions and improvisations and we all found it great fun so please have a go.
You just have to go with it!
