Buzzard Rescue by Oscar in Year 4

During the Summer holidays in the very hot weather, me and my dad left home to go shopping, when we came across a big bird in the middle of a country lane. My dad stopped his van and got out to see if the bird was okay, great news the bird was still alive! Then my dad said it’s a Buzzard, which is one of the big birds we always see flying around! We wanted to help the bird out, so my dad managed to pick it up and put it in a box that he had in his van, and we took it home straight away. When we got home my dad sprayed the bird with water to cool it down, because he thought the Buzzard might have been hot and needed water! I put some water on a blanket so my dad could put the Buzzard back in the box to keep it cool, then my dad called the Bird of Prey & Owl Sanctuary in Stowmarket to see if they could help. They asked us to bring the Buzzard over, so we drove over to see them. As we arrived we were told to go to the Bird Hospital, where there were two lady’s waiting to see us. The Lady in the Bird Hospital looked at the Buzzard to see if it had been hit or hurt in any way. She said it seemed to be fine, not hurt at all, then she explained that the Buzzard was a young male and had Just left the nest. Because the weather was so hot, and he had no water or food for a few days, he was suffering. She said if we hadn’t rescued the Buzzard that day it may have passed away due to hot weather! We watched the lady feed the Buzzard with some liquid food in a syringe to make it feel better. After that we got to say bye-bye to the buzzard and we were told we would get a phone call in a few days to see how he is getting on.

Crafty Foxes Visited Year 4s to do an art activity making a rain gauge to link with their science learning

Thank you Sexton’s Manor Year 4 class for having me this afternoon.  You have been the best behaved, most enthusiastic class I have visited so far.  A helpful teacher, teaching assistants and a class full of interested and engaged children throughout made my job a very enjoyable one.  Everybody offered a please and thank you without being prompted and interesting questions and helpful solutions to problems were discussed throughout the session.  The children were patient whilst they waited for the next instructions and everyone was very respectful of each other and myself.

A huge thank you to Suffolk County Council, the PTA and a very kind grandad who donated funds for this new piece of playground equipment.  The children (and Mrs Knight) love it!
