Never a dull moment

We have had a super week in Cherry class and what is always exciting is that we can never really predict all that we will learn each week.
Yesterday gave us some very exciting and unusual weather and we had to go out and explore the hail. What did it look like? What did it feel like? What did it sound like as it hit the canopy roof and the floor out side?? What was it ? 

Today we were lucky enough to watch some beautiful wild bird behaviour. As we came out to play in the outside area, we spotted a blackbird fledgling who was being fed worms and other Minibeasts by its Mummy. We watched as it hopped around and we kept still and quiet so that we didn't frighten it away.
Some of the children were so fascinated that they even got a chair and sat down some more to watch more carefully.
The little bird hopped and jumped and made a couple of small flights before it disappeared for a long spell.
Whilst it was gone, we noticed a nest in out cherry tree.

Later, I went to inspect the nest and the eggs inside it. There were 4 speckled beautiful eggs. I will have to watch and listen to when the eggs hatch.
