More sneak peeks

The children have been hard at work decorating Wisey today and we are very impressed with how the decorating is coming along. He now has some feathers covering his wings and poppies growing on his back.

Unfortunately, Wisey will be leaving us on Tuesday evening to fly to a new temporary home so that he can meet thousands of visitors. Make sure that you come to see the completed Wisey before he says good bye.

Busy, busy, busy!

We were very busy this evening. The pupils were hard at work decorating Wisey. We would like to share some more sneak peeks with you.
Mr Murphy even helped out tonight.

Where do you think these poppies will be going?

Twycross Zoo Visit

On Wednesday, the pupils who are involved in the Big Hoot project, were invited to visit Twcross zoo to take part in conservation activities and to obviously see their feathered friends.

The day started off in Kingdom of the apes!

Identifying the bugs
After we ate lunch, it was time to continue our tour around the zoo.

Where are the elephants?
We couldn't believe how tall the giraffes actually were.
The baby elephant was very cute.

The children were very excited when they eventually spotted some real owls.
We looked at the patterns and features on each owl to help us with more ideas to include on our own owlet.
