This week in Forest School, Year 5 and 6 spent their afternoon investigating owl pellets. In groups, the children wore gloves and pulled apart the pellets to see if they could find out what the owls had eaten. They used a sheet and were able to compare the bones to see what animals there were.
Elsie in Year 5 said “We had to pull the bones out and use the shapes to see what animals they were.”
George in Year 6 said “The pellets smelt really bad, like animals in a zoo. Despite that, we had a lot of fun trying to figure out what the animals were. I found a shrew!”
