Billy the Blackbird School Workshops

We are very excited to introduce our new Author Readings and Bird feeder Workshops that we have available to primary schools and EYFS settings throughout the UK. 

Aimed at children aged 4-7, Billy and the Bird Feeder is a story of adventure, friendship and the unshakeable feeling of well-being when humans connect with the nature around them. It sees the children at number 6 Lavender Lane making bird feeders with their Mum, whilst at the same time, a little baby blackbird is getting ready to make his first trip out of the nest. 

However, Billy and the Bird Feeder is much more than just a story, it includes step-by-step guide of how to build your own bird feeder, a guide to British Garden Birds and a Blackbird fact file. It supports the EYFS and KS1 Science curriculums with understanding the world, animal identification, diets and local environment, as well as supporting literacy for learning and encouraging reading for pleasure.

Our Workshops:

We have a range of workshops available to fit classroom needs and curriculum journey. Sessions can be prerecorded or interactive and can all be streamed safely into the classroom with no need for face-to-face visits in school. We can even take care of the promotion of the reading to parents with a bespoke Parentmail template.
