Class 4 Nature Blog

We are so lucky to be surrounded by nature. 

In Class 4 we have started our own blog to keep track of the seasonal changes and our little visitors.

We have an amazing view from the windows in Class 4.  The birds, creatures and trees keep us entertained and make us feel so happy.  We have a wide variety of birds that regularly visit us to feast on the feeders.  We are also lucky enough to have squirrels, rabbits and now Donald and Daisy our two friendly ducks.

We were excited to see a pheasant visit the water bowl for a drink.

We are enjoying developing our outdoor area and making it more wildlife friendly.
