Year 2 were thrilled by their flying visitors this week, as Wayne from the Wise Owl Sanctuary came to school to teach the boys (and some of their parents) all about our feathered friends.
We were introduced to Orville, a Little Owl, Bubbles the Barn Owl, Willow the European Eagle Owl and Storm the Harris Hawk, who took a liking to the balcony railings in the Hall at Marlborough Road!
The boys took part in flying demonstrations as they made a human tunnel for Bubbles to fly through and then lay on the floor for Storm to swoop over in his hunt for food - reliably held by a very brave Mrs Barker! All of the boys then had the chance to hold Orville if they wished, as the photographs show.
It was a fabulous learning experience which was thoroughly enjoyed by us all, thanks to Wayne and his brilliant birds!
