A school spokesperson said: “Our main topic in Years 1 & 2 this term is owls.

“Over the Christmas holidays the children completed a research project to find out as much information about owls as they could.

“On returning to school they presented their findings in a variety of ways.

“The owl expert came into school with a collection of real owls to answer questions that the children have but have not been able to find the answer.”
