Education & Schools
Visits & interactive sessions
We take a variety of birds of prey including Owls, Hawks and Falcons to schools in and around Yorkshire.
Our aim at KL Falconry is to provide old and young with the opportunity to have hands on experience with our native wildlife. Teaching the importance of wild and captive birds of prey and owls.
Our school team provide interactive sessions, both static and flying. A selection of our birds can be handled by the children and staff, possibly providing a once in a lifetime opportunity. We cover a wide range of subjects throughout the National Curriculum and can tailor our talks to any age and subject around the various Key stages. Some of the subjects that we have covered in previous schools;
- Owl Babies
- Light and Dark
- Feathered animals
- Nocturnal animals
Our experienced falconers will talk to the children on their level, adding in more depth for the teachers. We can provide sessions from 1 hour to a full day – we can be placed in the classroom for single sessions, the hall for multiple sessions or outside for our flying sessions. Our birds will be brought into the school in their travel boxes, they will then be taken out in turn – the falconer will take the birds around for the children to see whilst talking about this bird and answering any questions that are being asked.
We also offer educational presentations to a variety of different groups and clubs, we have visited a range of groups over the years including; brownies, rainbows and scouts groups, farmers clubs, rotary clubs, lions and lionesses and much more! If you have a group that you would like us to attend, please get in touch!
