The Wise Owl flies in to meet Year 2!

The Year 2 boys were treated to a very exciting morning when Wayne from The Wise Owl came to visit with his selection of owls. The boys thoroughly enjoyed sharing their knowledge and learning more fascinating facts about owls, from the reasons behind their differing eye colours to the terms used to describe the owls based on the times of day that they hunt; diurnal, nocturnal and crepuscular.

Lots of the boys (and teachers!) chose to hold an owl but the highlight of the morning had to be the flight of the kestrel above us, as we all lay on the floor of the hall. He flew so low that the tips of his wings almost touched our faces - it was very exciting!

An excellent morning with some incredible flying visitors!
