The Owl Crew

Fluffy Owl Crew
We are delighted to introduce the Discovery Owl crew.

A special owl for each year group, enables children to ask questions and have their favourite owl provide answers and challenge them with further questions.

The owls also appear in the planning as teacher prompts.
