Birds of Prey

The Infant House children were treated to a visit from Huxley’s Bird of Prey Centre to inspire their work on birds.

They marvelled at the wonderful collection of birds including owls, vultures and sparrowhawks. The teachers bravely volunteered to join in the flying demonstration.

“All the children were wonderful representatives of Annan as they sat and listened to the experts with such enthusiasm, they asked thoughtful and relevant questions and shared their own knowledge of these majestic birds. Huxley’s could not believe some of the facts the children knew, from why owls need to fly without a sound to where Chile was located in the world, this visit was a real inspiration towards our ‘Up, Up and Away’ topic.”
