Today we were visited by owls during our assembly. Margaret handled the owls. Shravan enjoyed the start, one of the owls spread its wings and looked like it was going to fly. Marcus learned that the owls had orange, black and yellow eyes. Jonathan found it interesting that owls are the only birds with eyes right at the front of their face so they don’t have a blindspot. Alexander Benson discovered owls have 10x stronger hearing than a dog. Alasdair remembered learning about an owl having two ears, one being at its jaw and one at its eye, and that it uses its hearing more than its sight. It was a very informative and exciting assembly, enjoyed by the whole class!
