Class 2 have a Real Hoot with Haze!

Class 2 welcomed three very special visitors on Thursday, with one of which having rather more feathers and much larger eyes than your average Bosbury School guest as the children were delighted to meet Haze the barn owl, accompanied by Tom and Holly from the International Birds of Prey Centre in Newent.

After an introduction in the classroom with this very unique visitor, Class 2 were joined by Class 3 in the hall as Haze treated everyone to a magnificent flying display, even taking the time to venture up for a quick perch on the sills of the high windows in the hall to check that Miss Spence's new blinds had been installed correctly!

 

 

Thank you ever so much to Tom, Holly and of course Haze for treating the children to such a spectacle and for rounding off their popular Enchanted Forest topic this half term in such fascinating style.
