So far this term we have been learning all about the Sikhi birds featured in The Gurbani. Mrs Morgan’s class has the Sparrow and Ms Sandhu’s class has the Partridge as their class bird. The children have been very excited to learn about the birds as well as discover facts relating to The Gurbani.
They have had the opportunity to draw their bird by looking at the specific features in detail. As well as this the children have written acrostic poems using the adjectives and facts learned about each bird. Excitingly, the children walked through the forested area in the field to try and spot the birds or their nests. They even picked some twigs, grass and leaves to make their own nests for them. “We were acting like birds looking for twigs and leaves to make nests”, said a Year 2 child.
As sparrows are normally found around houses and people, the children used resources to make their own bird feeders.
Partridge class went to find some nests around the school as the birds are too shy to be seen among people.
