Y1 Owl Visit

We had an Owl Visit in Y1 today!

Dave brought in Plop the Barn Owl, Crackerjack, a White-Faced Owl and Spot, a Spotted Owl. We also met Norma the Hedgehog.

The children sat so smartly and were very brave when the owls flew over them. They were very careful to be quiet so they wouldn’t scare the owls and answered lots of questions about nocturnal animals and owls. We learnt how owl’s feathers are quiet and soft but not waterproof and compared to an eagles owls that are waterproof, strong but noisy. Later Ms Curtis taught the whole school more owl facts in assembly, inspired by our visit.

We will be using all the facts we learned today in our English work , on ‘The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark’, (we also started to read the novel version today) and on our owl information books.
