Time to get back outside!
Go on a walk and collect as many sticks/leaves/stones as you can.

When you get home, you can have a go at turning your collection into a picture of an animal - maybe a spiky stick hedgehog or a bird with leafy feathers?

Topic:

After you have been on your walk, talk to someone at home and tell them all about the things you saw while in the park. You could even go again today (the weather is supposed to be lovely today!)
You should use words that describe where you saw each animal. Make sure to use full sentences! "I saw the bird on the tree."
