Year 5 Birdhouse Project

Year 5 Birdhouse Project

For the spring term, the Year 5 boys are moving away from hibernating insects to nesting birds and developing our precision and accuracy by making bird boxes for common garden birds.  They are responding with wonder and awe at the birds' migration patterns and building strategies and developing their environmental awareness by creating living roofs – experimenting with different types of seeds and plants to investigate which thrive best. 

They hope to develop their ICT skills in future by placing a small camera inside the structures to record the progress of hatchlings.
