Today in Nursery we are making bird feeders.


Please click on the following link to find how we are going to make them at Nursery.  

Mr Blooms bird feeders… You will need- string, pine cones, bread, dried fruits, lard, and bird seed. Please remember to attach the string onto the pine cone before adding the other ingredients.  


We appreciate you may not be able to collect all the resources to make the above bird feeder, so below are some other ways if you wish to do so.   Please remember to up load your pictures to Learning Book, thank you and enjoy.

Homemade fat cakes  

1. Melt the suet or lard in a bowl and mix in seeds, nuts, oats, dried fruit or cheese.  

2. Meanwhile, make a small hole in the base of a yoghurt pot and run a string through.  

3. When you tip the mixture into the yoghurt pot, be sure to run the tail of the string through the centre of the mixture so that it will be firmly fixed in the middle when set.  

4. Leave in the fridge until set.  

5. When the cake is set you can pop it out of the yoghurt pot and hang it in your garden. 


Here are some developmental steps for you to use as a rough guide depending on your child's age in months: 


22-36 months- Uses language as a powerful means of widening contacts, sharing feelings, experiences and thoughts. 

30-50 months- Uses talk to connect ideas, explain what is happening and anticipate what might happen next, recall and relive past experiences 

40-60 months-  Uses talk to organise, sequence and clarify thinking, ideas, feelings and events.
