A baby owl is called an owlet.
The owls in this week’s story are owlets. Above is a painting of three owlets. Perhaps you might be inspired to create your own owl art? Could you collect feathers on your walk and use them to add texture to your art?
Owls are wonderful birds and are fascinating to learn about.
Watch this video to find out some owl facts.
We’ve just found out that there are over 200 different types of owl.
Here are a few for you to look at.
What differences can you see? Do their faces look the same? What about the colour of their feathers?

Can you create your own fact file about what you have found out? Consider writing about what you have found out about the owl’s eyes, ears, talons, feathers, etc.
We are going to identify the habitats of Owls and the living conditions they need to survive. Watch the videos to find out more.
Now lets find out some more information about owls.
Do you know where owls like to live now? What do they eat? Did you know that owls are nocturnal? What does nocturnal mean?
Have a look at the resources below.
In Art and DT this week we are going to be designing and making our own owls. At school we will be using clay. At home you could use playdough, clay or salt dough (I will put the recipe at the bottom of the page).
Which owl would you like to make?
Once you have decided, use the sheet below to draw your design. Label the different features you hope to make.
Now get making! Can you use any tools or items around your house to make imprints into the clay? How can you add texture to your owl? Which tool/item works the best?
Once the clay is dry we are going to be painting our owls to really bring them to life.
I can’t wait to see the finished models! If you’re at home, send me a picture of your finished owl.
To finish the week let’s have a calm session of cosmic yoga, here’s an adventure about Tallulah the Owlet
