Senegal Parrots Visit Beaucroft

In Lulworth class, we are learning about Animals and their habitats, as part of our Science topic.

Last week we had a visit from two Senegal parrots.  One is called Mango. He is 5-6 years old. He can talk, when he wants to. The second one is called Leo, she is about 27 years old. She doesn’t talk. They are both rescue parrots. They love to eat pellets, fruit, veg, seeds and nuts.

The children all enjoyed holding, stroking and having Leo sit on their shoulders. Mango stayed in his cage and the children looked at him through the cage.

The parrots come into school regularly. Both parrots and children enjoy the encounters.

The children enjoy learning about them and watching clips on the internet.
