Welcome to Birds and Seasons Week of Journey to the Ugly Bug Ball!

This week we will be investigating how the seasons change and learning the song Three Birds by Jonathan Dove with words by Alasdair Middleton. The song is about the migration of birds through the seasons.  We will be learning the song and making a seasons wheel.

Here’s a little poem to get you started:

When it is winter I put on my coat,
When it is spring I plant some seeds,
When it is summer, I go to the pool,
When it is autumn I go to school.
