 Using their senses the children explore texture, pattern and colour whilst creating individual and group art  using  natural materials.

Key Stage 1 Programmes


 Brilliant Birds

 Have a go at bird watching, learn about the parts of a bird and how to identify birds.  Listen to bird songs and  have a go at building a nest using natural materials.  Find out what birds like to eat, go on a minibeast hunt  and make a bird feeder.



 Natural Materials

 Go on a scavenger hunt to find a variety of natural materials.  Identify what the objects are and where they  come from.  Discuss the parts of plants and their importance in the lifecycle of a plant.  Investigate the  properties of the materials and how they are used by man.  Children select natural materials to use to make  a nest/shelter.
