The Owl and the Pussycat S9 Explore and imagine ideas in role as the Owl and the Pussycat on their voyage.

Task 1


“They sailed away, for a year and a day.”

What do you think the Owl and the Pussycat saw on their voyage?

What do you think they did?


Roll up a piece of paper or use an empty kitchen paper tube.  This is your telescope.  Imagine you are the Owl or the Pussycat and look through your telescope.

What can you see from your pea green boat?

I can see a group of big, grey, playful dolphins.  They’re following our boat, leaping out of the sea and splashing us! 

What else can you see?


How could you describe the scene?

Through the calm, clear water I can see green, bobbly seaweed swaying like a dancer.  Tiny, pink crabs scuttle over big, bumpy rocks as black as coal.


Task 2

Draw what you can see.    

Then record your ideas in sentences.  Think carefully about using adjectives and simile to help your reader imagine they are there too.
