Everybody had the chance to hold an owl and as they were so tame, they could be closely looked at, stroked and observed.  Miss Ritty was so proud of her nature loving class who were so gentle and kind with their birds.

Everyone now has a ‘da Vinci Sketchbook’ which they are encouraged to take home and use to draw their thoughts and ideas so long as they come to school every day.  Drawings of garden birds, magazine cut outs,  sketches of birds in flight, birds landing, nests, hunting techniques, feathers are all welcome so long as you can explain why it was interesting!  In 1994 Bill Gates paid $30.8 million for Leonardo’s notebooks…. (no pressure, P6….
