When Plop and friends came to visit P2

We were lucky enough to have a visit from Bruckly Therapy Owls this afternoon. As part of our IDL ‘The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark’ we have been learning all about owls and nocturnal animals. We asked many interesting questions and got to stroke the owls. What a fantastic experience!

There will be pictures of your child and Plop in the learning journeys in Term 2. Ask your child what their favourite part of the visit was today!
