The children visited Baytree Owl Centre to look at the birds of prey. They had lots of questions they wanted to answer so they asked the experts and read all the information boards. As part of the innovate week the children used paint.net to create their own ultimate predator. They used a teacher of their choice and used their favourite predatory features to turn them into an ultimate predator.
