Meet an Owl in Class

This visit is a new low-budget service for schools in South Gloucestershire.


This is a simple visit by me and a live, tame owl where the children can meet the owl and learn about the special features they have and how they live through an enjoyable question and answer session.


For reception & Year 1 classes I can present an ‘Owl Babies’ session or for Year 2 and above I will show the children owl owl pellets, owl eggs & owl feathers and demonstrate how an owl is specially adapted with silent flight to locate and catch its prey through a fun activity - a small number of students are also invited to take the ‘Talon Test’ to see how sharp an owls talons really are!


As an enjoyable end to classroom sessions, if time allows, the owl can be placed on a branch and the children can draw the bird before it finally flies back into its box.


Wild Owl ‘Meet an Owl in Class’ visits are a fun and structured way for children to learn about wild British owls and understand how important our wild populations are and why we need to look after them.
