BIRDS OF PREY

 

 

 

DURATION: 1 HOUR

 

SUITABLE FOR: ALL KEY STAGES

 

GROUP SIZE: ANY- however 60 as a maximum offers the best learning opportunity

 

This talk covers so many school topics such as flight, birds of prey, bird anatomy, teeth jaws and claws...

 

As always my talking and teaching style will reflect the age group of your pupils, making for an informative and fun learning experience.

 

We will get to meet within the school hall a great variety of Raptors such as Owls, Hawks, Falcons, Kites and Eagles (click on MEET THE RAPTORS to see the team). This enables us to talk about many of their adaptations, from the ultraviolet vision of Kestrels, hunting by sound of the Owls to the high speed pursuits of the Peregrine .

 

Not just meeting, but we will also fly some birds over the pupils heads within the school hall! This not only demonstrates some of what we have learnt, but is thrilling for the pupils-really cementing in the information I will have passed on.

 

Depending on the talk topic, we may also pass around various 'props' such as feathers, Pellets and Falconry equipment.
