With Big School Birdwatch just around the corner, we were busy making some feeders for our school grounds! Both the Green teams and the Outdoor explorers got their hands greasy by mixing lard and bird seed together. This is a very tactile experience… and some pupils enjoyed it more than others!!

We mixed the seed and then lay a dollop of mixture onto some cling film with some string. We then we ‘squidged’ the mixture around the string with the cling film helping us to mould it into a ball shape.

We then popped them in the fridge to get them to set them (make them go hard) and next week, we will remove the cling film and then hang them up for birds to eat! They are going to LOVE them!!!
