Y2 Owl Visit.

Year 2 enjoyed a visit from Dave and the owls to help them write a non-fiction report on the same topic.  Dave told the children lots of useful information that would help them to construct their report, such as the smallest owl being able to fit into an adult’s pocket.  He introduced the children to an owl called Crackerjack, a falcon called Nigel and a Barn Owl called Plop!  Children also found out more about the types of food that owls like to eat, for example rats and mice.  He explained how they use their super hearing to hear the tiny footsteps of their prey from far away!  The visit ended with Y2 children bravely exploring and holding more creatures that live in owl habitats and may be targeted for hunting!  These included a tarantula, a milk snake, huge cockroaches, a hedgehog and a giant snail!  Year 2 excitedly shared the knowledge they have learnt with their talk partners and are using it to help them write their reports this week.
