Flying the nest

We received this report from Heather James at Ladywood school about the Flying The Nest activity which was funded through the community chest last year.

It certainly looks like they all had a great time

Thanks heather for sharing this with us. Here is the report.

On 26th and 27th of July the children from Ladywood and Dallimore schools in reception, year 1 and 2 enjoyed the interactive show by Flying the Nest.

The children were transported to the wonderful world of British Birds through a theatrical experience.

“The best bit was feeding the different birds in their nests and getting the worms!” Year 1 Ladywood Child

“The show was brilliant, I just chuckled from start to finish and I’m still singing the songs now.  Watching the children come alive was brilliant.” Ladywood learning mentor

“The children’s confidence grew and grew as they took part, they all just loved it.” Dallimore teacher
