Hoot With Me Community Interest Company
We had a visit from Hootwithme to Reedham Primary School a couple of weeks ago. The children had a brilliant time and the information was aimed exactly at the right age group, it was a super learning experience for all concerned and I can’t recommend Tonya and her owl friends enough. Our children still haven’t stopped talking about it and we have been able to cover lots of areas of the EYFS by doing different activities since the visit. A very knowledgable and friendly lady with some super friendly birds. I would strongly recommend her to anyone.
"Thank you so much for visiting our school with your gorgeous owls. I know everybody loved seeing them and we appreciate just how good you were with the children too - they learnt a lot and will remember the visit for a long time to come. I am sure we will be in touch to rebook you next year.
In the mean time I have sent you pictures of the children's owl pictures with charcoal and pastel. Enjoy

"Hoot with me visited us at St Faiths Primary School today. Tonia read stories & did some fun age appropriate activities with the children as the owls looked on. Each child got to hold Betty & Arthur & were never rushed making it a very relaxing experience. They were also excited to meet baby Ethel. The ladies were happy to answer our many questions. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone."

"Many thanks for coming to Loddon Rainbows on Thursday - it was a wonderful experience for the girls and adults. I know I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Olaf & Arthur, as well as learning a few things about owls.
Thanks again Sandra Clelland"
It was a great experience for all of the children and thank you for being so generous with your time. It was a real “WoW” learning experience for all ages!
Are you available to visit other schools as I would imagine some of my colleagues would love the opportunity for their children to have the learning experience?
Thank you again"

"Thank you so much Hoot With Me for a fantastic afternoon. The children were fascinated by the owls and have remembered so many facts. The activities were fun and engaging and really helped the children to understand the importance of caring for these beautiful animals.

"Thank you so much. We all thoroughly enjoyed your visit. The children are still talking about it this week and the parents have been delighted too. We are really pleased with how much they have remembered and how much they got from the visit.
Thank you so much for your kind understanding and flexibility about timings and spaces too."

"Dear Hoot with Me,
As you are aware some of our children have difficulty socializing and communicating with their peers and adults and the visit from 'Hoot Wit Me' really encouraged our children to open up and discuss what they had seen, heard and interacted with. Animals are an amazing teaching resource and also a form of therapy for our children, Olaf the Great Grey Owl, was very calm and patient and Tonya was very kind and caring towards our children, encouraging them to ask questions and providing very informative answers specific to their age range.
We cannot thank you enough for coming to see us and enabling our children to become totally different children for a while.
We would highly recommend a visit from 'Hoot with Me' and would gladly welcome a return visit one day."
