Reception learn about birds

Last week the children were looking at different types of birds that they might see when taking part in the ‘Little Schools’ Birdwatch’ project. They had to try and sketch the bird from the photograph they had chosen and paint it with the water colour paints.

This was quite a difficult task for the children who are used to drawing from their imagination. They had to keep looking at the photograph to draw the features in the correct places and also to ensure that they painted the colours correctly. Using the water colour paints to paint a whole picture was a new experience for the children who only started full time in January.

Everyone tried their best and they hope you enjoy looking at their paintings.
