Year 1 learnt about the diet of different animals in their Science lesson, categorising them as herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. They then focused on some of the wildlife closest to home – garden birds. They learnt about some of the food that birds eat and followed a recipe with support to create bird seed balls for the outdoor area. First they carefully chopped sultanas, before adding them to a mixture of different seeds.
Next they grated cheese and stirred it in.
Finally they mixed in melted coconut oil, before spooning the mixture into different cookie cutters to shape them. Once the mixture had cooled and set, they were hung outside in the outdoor area for the birds to eat.
