We launched our 2018 programme of enrichment experiences with a visit from Fens Falconry. All students from Reception to Sixth Form were able to see a range of birds of prey up close, including the fastest animal on the planet: a peregrine falcon. We had hour-long sessions for each age group where they could learn about how the different birds of prey live in the wild. Students could also handle feathers, eggs and even bird pellets!
The day was finished with a spectacular flying display over our sports field. We were all amazed by the way the birds flew over our heads and always returned to receive some food.
It was fantastic to see all the children so excited by the birds. Some of the teachers also faced their fears by watching these magnificent creatures.
We are already organising our next enrichment experience: a visiting planetarium to teach the children all about astronomy and the night sky. Check back for more updates next half term!
