Today was a very exciting day for all Year 1 children...it was 'Owl Day'. The children in Oak and Elm Classes were starting a week of English studying the book 'Owl Babies' by Martin Wadell.
As the children were also learning non-fiction facts about Owls, Mrs West arranged for Archie the Barn Owl and Gizmo the Small Owl to come to our school.
Year 1 were amazed to see live owls silently swooping above their heads! In the afternoon, the children were invited to try observational drawings using soft art pencils. They learnt about line, form, tone and shading. There were some brilliant owls sketched!
Thank you so much to the PTA for funding such a memorable opportunity. Take a look on the Year 1 Class Pages for more photos...
