BIRDS of prey descended on a primary school to work with the children during their science week.

Pupils at Brooke Hill Primary School in Brooke Road, Oakham, have been learning about habitats and as part of their work about birds they were introduced to owls, hawks and other birds of prey by staff at The Cambridge Raptor Foundation.

Deputy headteacher Jane Fitzgerald said: “The children loved it and it was super for all of the age groups because the younger ones heard a story as well.

“Most of the children got to hold the birds.

“They were all captivated and it has definitely inspired them.”

This week the children at the school have been working on their own paper birds of prey and the team whose ‘bird’ flies the furthest will be deemed the winner.
