Owl Babies


Our Owl Babies literacy workshop

This workshop lasts for 2 hours and and is loosely based upon the Owl Babies story. We include a 15 minute ‘snack and comfort break’ within the timetable to ensure that Early Years groups are able to access this programme enjoyably.

The workshop will begin with an interactive re-telling of the story. During the session the children will explore the habitat of a tawny owl and learn about the nutritional needs of a baby owl as it grows to maturity.  The children will make a simple craft to take home. Please bring a cardboard box to transport these safely back to school.

This workshop is suitable for Early Years and KS1.

Children will:

  • Listen and engage with the story of Baby Owls
  • Learn about the habitat of owls
  • Hunt for clay mice to feed the baby owls
  • Make a clay mouse to take home

A snack time is built into the workshop so that the children are able to have a short break. This workshop takes place in our woodland settings, please ensure children are dressed appropriately.
