The Owl and the Pussycat
Re-read the poem from yesterday. Today we are going to think about describing the setting. The Owl and the Pussycat went to the land where the Bong-trees grow. What do you think this might look like? What might they find there? Who else might they see there?
I would like you to describe the land where the Bong-trees grow. Try and use lots of adjectives in your writing. I've attached some pictures to help you.
Extension - Use commas in a list to describe some of the things you might find.
The Owl found green trees, soft fruit, wild animals and a fast flowing river.
Draw a picture of the land where the Bong-trees grow.

Look at the totals you have made. Which coins could you use to make each total?
What are you good at? This might be school work, singing, dancing or even swimming. We are all good at doing different things. Can we always tell what someone is good at from the outside? We might need to get to know them first in order to find out. Jesus didn't look special from the outside. Think about what made Jesus special. What did he do that made him such a special person? What makes you special?
Draw and write about what makes Jesus special. I'd also like you to draw and write about what makes you special.
I look forward to seeing your work!

There are lots of different kinds of owls. With an adult, have a look on the internet for some owl pictures. I would like you to do your own picture of an owl using a pencil. Look carefully at the shape of the eyes and the beak. What shape could you use for the body and the wings? Look carefully at the lines you could use to draw the owls feathers.
I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures!

The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat
I hope you enjoyed listening to the story.
The Owl and the Pussycat went on a new adventure because a thief had stolen their ring. They travelled on a blue balloon to the Chankly Bore. The crow had sold the ring to a Pobble. The Owl and the Pussycat had to find some gloves for the Pobble. He gave them their ring in return.
I would like you to write a new adventure for the Owl and the Pussycat. Where would they go? Who would they find? What would happen to them?
