Retell the story orally together. Can you remember what happened? Watch and listen again. With help, have a go at making some owl puppets, following the simple instructions here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JStDN3ngm4w Talk through each instruction as you complete this together. Re-tell the story again, this time using your newly-made puppets to act the story out. If you’re not able to make the puppets, use your teddies to take on the roles of the owls! Encourage your child to use words from the book in their retelling, e.g. hunting, brave, swooped.
Ask your child what they already know about owls. Discuss and write down some questions they might like to find out. E.g. What do owls eat? Where do owls live? Watch All About Owls (a basic introduction): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_C_1cATo9uw Pause the clip after each piece of information and repeat the sentence back to each other. If you can, have a go at writing one or two sentences down, using your phonics to help you.
