Design and Technology

Now that you have a fantastic design for your bird feeder, it is time to get making!

Use the materials you wrote down on your design to create you bird feeder.

Here are some questions to think about when you’re making it:

Does it look the same as your design?

Have you had to change any part to make it?

Why did you choose to change it?

What do you think of you completed bird feeder?

If you have already made you bird feeder then why not make some bird food to go in it. Here is a really simple recipe you can use to make bird food.

You will need:


Bird seed

A bowl and a spoon for mixing

Cutters (optional)

Leave your lard at room temperature for a few hours to soften it up. Once it is soft you can put it all into the bowl. Add a big scoop of bird seed and get mixing!

Add enough bird seed so it can be seen through the lard. Once mixed you can use your hands to roll it into balls or you can push it into your cutters. Poke a hole in the top with a straw or add in a stick and freeze for a few hours. 

Then all that’s left to do is add your string and hang them out for the birds!

We would love to see some photos of your creations and any birds that come visiting!


Cooking and Nutrition

Hello everyone!

As we are staying safe at home I want us to think about our nutrition.

Do we know what foods are healthy and which foods are not?

I asked some of the Ladywood staff to send me a picture of their favourite snack. I got lots of different types of snacks, but I need help to decide if they are healthy and I should ‘eat a lot of it’ or if they are a little unhealthy and I should ‘only eat a little bit of it’.

Can you help me by commenting below which is which?
