Birds and Music at Angel Court

This week saw a return to our Angel Court visits. Over the last few months we have mostly been outside working on their new garden, but whilst the weather is cold and Neil puts the last touches on the henhouse, we moved inside to the warm to enjoy some music. Tobias, a musician from Equal Arts, has designed the sessions around the RSPB Big School Birdwatch, to link to activities we are running in our forest school. First everyone introduced themselves and shared their feelings about music and birds. Maisie loves bebop and Peter and Bob are big magpie fans. We then played a pass the sound game to get everyone warmed up. We listened to some different types of dawn chorus, these vary dramatically depending where you live. Then time to get out the instruments and attempt to mimic some birds sounds. This was a lovely meet and greet session that got everyone talking and sharing ideas, we are looking forward to doing some listening walks in the garden and of course the birdwatch itself.

Principle 2: Forest School takes place in a woodland or natural wooded environment to support the development of a relationship between the learner and the natural world.
