This morning, we held our welcome brunch at Little Owls Scarning. This is where we invite our new families joining our Tawny Owl Nursery to come in and meet the team as well as joining in with lots of lovely activities.  We also enjoyed a lovely brunch together, and chatted amongst all of our families to get to know you all.  This morning was a huge success and we very much enjoyed meeting you all. We look forward to welcoming you all to nursery very soon!

Making Binoculars

For world garden bird watch week, Barn Owls Scarning have today enjoyed making their own binoculars.  Barn owls used a variation of different craft materials to decorate their binoculars including felt tips, different coloured feathers, tissue paper and sequins !
Once all Barn owls had made their binoculars we went outside to explore the nature garden with some different species tick lists to see what we could find, we were very excited to find two birds nests in the trees
Barn owls sprinkled some of the bird seed we made last week onto the floor and we even got to watch a little robin come and munch some for his lunch
Well done Barn Owls Scarning
