We decided to look after our local wildlife and install a bird feeder on the classroom window. The birds were a bit shy at first but now we have a selection of beautiful sparrows using the feeder.

Jane showed us the boxes with the owls in them and we could hear them screeching inside the box. Did you know, the only owl that makes the "twit-two" noise is the tawny owl? One says twit and the other says twoo. She then took the owls out, one by one for us to look at. We had...
