When We Were Babies

Owls were lucky enough to be visited by not one, but two babies this week.

Baby Rupert and his Mummy visited Owls K on Tuesday and thoroughly enjoyed the attention he received from the children. We discussed how we have changed since being a baby, with one Owl saying "Babies crawl and go gaga" and another asking Rupert’s Mummy "Did you go to hospital?" Great question!

Owls B were visited by baby Rose on Wednesday, with her Mummy who is also a midwife. Mrs Holland showed the children how their heartbeat differs from that of a baby with the use of a stethoscope and a Ultrasound Doppler. The Owls got to listen to their own heart beat and then baby Rose’s with the children exclaiming " Baby Rose’s heartbeat is faster!"
