Half Day Owl Workshop
The half day owl workshop is my most popular booking and the very best way for children to learn about wild British owls.
In contrast to a 1 hour visit with just an owl, being based in a classroom or hall all morning gives classes the opportunity to experience my fascinating owl videos, photographs and hands on feathers, pellets, etc.
Arriving at 08.30am (or later if required) ready to start at 09.00, I will be with you right the way through to lunch and can work to your requirements, whether its working with one Year group or class all morning covering every aspect of wild British owls or working with up to 3 different classes for a general educational session.
Sometimes the other classes or Year groups feel they are missing out on the excitement of seeing a live owl in school so if required I can start the morning with a 45min owl talk at assembly for the whole school followed by workshops in the classroom or hall with the smaller groups.
This visit is highly recommended and extremely popular with teachers and Year leaders who book me for these workshops year after year
Bespoke schedule to suit your requirements
Appearance by a live tame British owl
Based in one classroom or hall for the morning (preferred) or move around classes
Typical morning comprises:
1 x Assembly talk followed by 2 x 45 - 60min classroom sessions or no assembly and 3 x 45 - 60 min classroom sessions - this is a guide only and I will always try to accommodate your own requirements.
A visit can offer any mix of the following activities:
Draw an Owl session - 15 - 20 mins
‘Amazing British Owls’ - 7 min video module
‘Hearing’ - 5 min video module
‘Life as a Wild Owl’ - 7 min video module
‘Nesting & Owl Babies’ - 7 min video module
‘Owl Detectives’ - 7 min video module
‘Nocturnal Hunters’ - 7 min video module
Children’s Powerpoint Owl Show - 35 mins
Owl Babies session (reception & KS1) - 30 mins
My owl does not do flying displays but if I bring my barn owl she may take a short flight across the hall to her box at the end of each session.
