As we teach the pupils the significance of speed, distance and G-force, our sessions can be adapted into a maths based lesson. Students will also be given the opportunity to weigh a bird, which will demonstrate the impact this has on its handler.
Pupils can create a descriptive story or poem about the history, facts and beauty of the birds of prey. Having learned a number of new avian-related words from our sessions, the pupils’ extended vocabulary can inspire them to write a creative piece from their time with the birds.
Students will also be able to discover the traits and habitats of the birds from a scientific perspective, and be given the chance to use a Radio Telemetry tracking system within the school grounds to demonstrate how a lost bird is located in the field.
Art & Crafts
Due to the timid nature of our birds, students are able to draw, paint or create collages of these magnificent creatures in an up-close and truly unique environment. Older students can hone their artistic skills by capturing incredible feather detailing, whilst younger pupils can get creative and paint our birds’ beautiful colours and patterns.
Geography & Technology
Also perfect for geography and technology, the flexibility and resourcefulness North Yorkshire Moors Birds of Prey offer means each lesson can be tailored to your exact needs. Presentations and types of birds can be adapted to suit a number of different topics and subjects to ensure students, teachers, carers and assistants get the most out of the experience.
With Chinese avian records dating as far back as 700 BC, Falconry’s long and fascinating history is the perfect story to tell in a classroom setting. Covering Medieval and Middle-Age practises, we show the students just how important ancient methods have been in shaping the modern day falconry we know and love today.
