We know time is tight, so here is just one activity you could complete with your class before or after watching the broadcast.

Curious kitten HWB 1-07a, HWB 1-19a

In Max and Bird, Max helps bird learn how to fly. They visit the library and do some research, and practice and practice and finally it happens! Bird has learnt something new and Max has made a new friend. Use this as inspiration to learn something new with your class. It could be a new song, dance or game, or another new skill. Does anyone in the class have a skill they would ike to share with others? Encourage pupils to teach their peers a new skill or activity.
