Owl Babies!

18 September 2015

In reception we have been reading the story ‘Owl Babies,’ as part of our new topic: Going on a journey. The children have been having great fun travelling around the hall like owls hunting through the night, stretching their wings and swooping through the space.

They’ve been really busy building homes for the baby owls too, from materials around the classroom. In the story, the baby owls are scared, because their mummy has gone missing! The dolphin class did a great job of protecting them in their newly built nests and helped them with chanting out ‘I want my Mummy!’
Throughout the week, the dolphins have been practicing a range of artistic skills including painting, cutting and gluing, which requires lots of concentration! They created their own baby owl paintings-on black paper, using sponges and dry brushes to create a feathery look. The Dolphins then made their own owl masks and puppets, which they used to retell the story. 
The children have really enjoyed making their own baby owls, ready for our brand new display. They each used a range of materials including: felt, paint, cotton wool, glitter and beautiful feathers to decorate their owls, creating a really fluffy texture. I think you will agree they look very cute! So do come along to see them all reunited with mummy owl in the reception corridor.
