Science KS1 / KS2: How spring affects plants and animals
A variety of native birds display seasonal spring time behaviour, plants burst into leaf and flower which shows the change in the landscape.
The birds sing to establish territory, build nests, sit on eggs and then feed their newly hatched young.
Young animals are seen playing with each other and in the company of their parents.
This behaviour is contrasted with human seasonal activity of children on an Easter egg hunt and families walking in woodlands.
