KS1 enjoyed investigating 'Mrs Twitcher's Challenge' to see "If people can build nests like birds do?".
At first the children thought it would be easy to use sticks and leaves. But they found it tricky to keep all of the natural materials together. Eventually they used long grasses and Rosemary stalks to tie parts of the nest together and used feathers, leaves and soft grass for inside.
The conclusion was that birds are much better at building nests than people.
