We have begun to do projects in class. In a little while we will be doing projects for homework.
We are reading ‘The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark’ by Jill Tomlinson. We are doing a project about owls.
We used the Enchanted Learning website for information.
ALL ABOUT OWLS ON ENCHANTED LEARNING
The children were particularly interested in the subject of owl pellets.
We used this site KIDWINGS
The class enjoyed listening to recordings of owls. There are some on the Kidwings site mentioned about but they much preferred the audios of owls screeching.
These following links come with a ‘Government Health Warning’ as some of the owl screeches can sound rather shrill.
National Geographic for Kids can be accessed HERE
Laura’s ‘Owl Eyes’.
OUR WORK ON PHOTOPEACH
The internet is fantastic for researching project work, but please supervise your child’s use of same.
Update 15th January 2013
Today we found this lovely website with a video of a barn owl in flight. If you look further down the page on the right, you will see there is also an audio of what the barn owl sounds like.
Barn Owls have been spotted in our neighbourhood. We are going to look out for barn owls when we are walking at night. They fly silently but they have a very loud screech.
