Youngsters at All Saints Primary School get the low down on birds of prey

With their time at All Saints CE Primary School drawing to a close year 6 children have been taking part in some exciting activities.

Earlier this month they spent a week on a residential course at Rockley Watersports, Poole, where they took part in pico and dart sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, stand up paddle boarding and powerboating.

All the children had a fantastic time and the experience will be remembered for many years.

Last week, following on from their owl project, they had a visit from The Devon Bird of Prey Centre. It gave the children the opportunity to fly a Barn Owl, and experience a face to face encounter with an Eagle Owl and two baby Harris Hawks.
