Be like a bird this morning.

Flap your wings

Ask the children if they can tell you what type of things the birds do.

Act out some of the things the birds are doing.

Communication & Language

Todays story is A busy day for birds.

A busy day for birds

Imagine you were a bird – what would you do? You might peck at some tree bark, swoop like a starling or catch a fly with your beak. All in all, you’d keep pretty busy!

This is a bright, lively book, full of cheerful rhyme about the many different kinds of birds in the world.

Ask the children join in with the commands: whether it’s standing on one leg, stretching their neck just like a swan, or shouting ‘cock-a-doodle do’! Some of these actions are also guaranteed to entice a giggle (laying an egg, anyone?). You’re certainly going to have a lot of fun reading it through together.

Expressive Art and Design

As our story today is ‘A busy day for birds’ why not create your own bird picture.

Use the photos below in order to create your picture.

Godly Play: The parable of the mustard seed
After talk together about some of these questions.
■ I wonder if the person who put the tiny seed in the ground has a name?
■ I wonder what the nests could really be?
■ I wonder if you have ever come close to this kind of tree?
