Have a listen to the song, can you learn the words and sing along?

As you look at the gardens below, have a think...


Which one is your favourite? Why?

Close your eyes and imagine you are visiting your own garden of dreams and goals

This is a safe and happy place.

Tell me about the plants, the birds, the creatures...


Your Task

We would like you to make your own imaginary birds for 'A Garden of Dreams and Goals'. 

Think about the colours, shapes and materials you could use. Use your imagination and create your model by junk modelling with resources found around the house like: coat hangers, tin foil, milk bottle tops, toilet rolls etc, 

Remember the garden is a happy and safe place so there is nothing scary in it!
