Briony's Incredible Dedication

Over the last two weeks we have had a couple of extra visitors to our classroom.

Briony had found these two newly hatched birds blown out of a tree in the winds we had had. She showed great determination to look after the chicks and set about feeding them every hour and with baby food and later cat food.

I thought their chances of surviving were slim but Briony was determined to give it a go.

To our surprise and delight they have done really well under her care and after four days off school because she had been feeling unwell herself Briony brought them along to school today for us to see how much they had grown.

They have thrived and have now got proper feathers.

Well done Briony. A magnificent effort.
