A visit from some feathered friends!

On Friday 9th November 2018, the whole school started the day with an assembly about birds of prey. We had a visitor called Sharon and she brought in 5 of her special ‘family’ members! The type of family members were; a Barn Owl (Rocky), a Little Owl (Click), American Kestrel (a Falcon called Star), a Harris Hawk (Sky) and a Goshawk (Spike). First we did a workshop and she talked about each bird and even let us stroke Rocky! Then we decided on our favourite bird of prey and we had to do a profile about it. We were really busy and then we had to use our classification knowledge to sort out lots of birds into four groups which were; hawks, falcons, owls and others. Later on we learnt about the anatomy of the birds of prey. We had a brilliant, fantastic, fun day and we can’t wait to see Sharon in two weeks’ time!!    by Amber and Seb T, Class 4
