What a fun fortnight!
Reception have made an excellent start at Harbury Primary School.
We have been focusing on the story of Mrs Honey’s Hat with the children having the opportunity to encounter things from each part of the story during Busy Learning Time.
They have been encouraged to explore each of the areas in our classroom, including our new mud kitchen area, working together to learn the new rules and routines.
Well done!

Barn Owl Box Update
As many of you may remember back in November the children painted a Barn Owl box as part of their Night & Day topic. This box was erected in the surrounding area of Harbury at the beginning of this year with the hope that wild barn owls would make it their home.

On the 11th June, the South Warwickshire Barn Owl Group made a visit to check if anything had used the box; I’m pleased to inform you that a female adult barn owl with two small chicks was found inside.

As part of the monitoring program, a return visit was made on 9th July so the chicks could be measured and ringed.

Sleepy owlets being carelly removed from the box. Both chicks are male and aged 41 & 43 day old at this stage.

It’s the best start we could of hoped for, fingers crossed the adults continue to use it in the years to come. We would like to thank all the parents that made a donation to help towards the costs of making the box- I’m sure you’ll agree it was well worth it!

The Reception outdoor area is looking very tired and it is increasingly difficult to make it work effectively for the children who use it.

Over the summer holiday, Mrs Neale, Mrs Kitchener and Mrs Batchelder are hoping to complete a mini-makeover in order to improve the provision…
