Firstly, I apologise for the misleading nature of the title of the post! If you are following along with Exploring Nature With Children, you will know that this week is field trip week. We are quite limited at the moment with how far we can travel from home, as I need to be on hand for my dear Mother In Law, who is really quite poorly.
Our nature study this week has been varied, with no specific focus. We enjoyed a lovely nature walk to the park. Look at those beautiful, bright blue skies! The pigeons were extremely entertaining, the males all puffed up, doing their courting dances, looking for a mate.
We observed the beautiful patterns and textures that the frost made.
Rose thought that the frost made the grass appear like the needles of a fir tree.
We didn’t see many pigeons, but the various fowl were rather hungry!
Our sketchbooks were varied this week, too. Rose sketched a wee bone that she found in the pond, and recorded her thoughts and questions about it, whilst I painted one of the frogs that Rose found in our garden pond.
Please do share what you have been up to this week, either in the comments, or in the FaceBook group. Did you have an interesting field trip this week? Or did you choose to stay with your regular nature walk?
I also would like to give you a quick reminder of todays live Periscope event; Nature Study part 1 with Leah Boden.
