As part of science week this week, Herons were set a challenge to see if they coulld make a nest as good as birds can. They could only use outdoor materials to help them. They worked together to build a nest to see if it could hold their class bird Squarky.


Did you complete the challenge? Did your nest hold Squarky? What did you use to create your nests?

Yes we completed the challenge , but the nest didn’t hold squarky. We used twigs , leaves and stones to make the nest

Yes we built a net but it didn’t hold sparky. I really really enjoyed building the nest.
I liked charlottes nest because it looked cool. It took hard work to do the nest.

We all completed the challenge and took our time. Our nest did hold Squarky because we used strong materials like sticks, some leaves, stones and mud to hold the best together.

Our nest held squarky. But it was very fragile. It was hard to weave the thin sticks to make a nest shape. We used leaves, thin sticks and mud to make it. I liked doing this.
