The Barn Owl Trust is a UK charity which aims to conserve the Barn Owl and its environment. They carry out practical conservation, research and educational work, advise farmers, government and landowners, and run a free information service. They also look after sick and injured owls in a genuine owl sanctuary - a place of peaceful retreat.
It was a wonderful opportunity for Year 1 to meet a barn owl and find out all about him. In the afternoon we carried out a science investigation breaking up disinfected owl pellets, another new experience.
