All about Owls

Spread the love


This week have been learning all about Owls.

Nicole, Hannah and others have been writing poetry about these fascinating nocturnal birds.

The Owl

Original Poem By Hannah Age 7

I saw an owl

Perched up in a tree


He was eating his dinner

As happy as can be


I saw him

He saw me


He said Hoot!

I said, I agree



Original Poem by Nicole

Hi, Im an owl

I live up in a tree

I can hear really well

& even eat mice for tea.

I hoot all day,

I hoot all night,

I sometimes give people a fright.

I use my claws to catch my prey

& use my ears to lead the way,

to catch my meal of the day.

We use our wings to blend into trees

& use our beaks as we please.

Have no fear Im really nice,

don’t be afraid , I only eat mice .

Owl Music

Hedwig’s theme is from Harry Potter. Every time Hedwig the owl appears in the movie here theme music plays. Harry’s owl Hedwig is a Snowy Owl. She’s a female but, in the movie, the actors playing her are males. (One of the owls playing Hedwig was also the very first cast member to be chosen!!) There’s lots to learn about the Owls in Harry Potter on this site we found Click Here


Some of our students made some lovely owls in Fabric and Fibre.

Owl adaptations.

Adaptations are special traits or features that help an animal survive in it’s environment.

Some owl adaptations include; excellent hearing, they can turn their heads almost 270 degrees around, sharp talons for gripping prey,

We found lots of information about owls on this little video [youtube][/youtube]
