The Owl and the Pussycat S13 Plan a sequel for ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’. 

Task 1

A sequel to a story continues the story.  Think about the key events in your sequel.


Use this beginning for your sequel:


At last, the Owl and the Pussycat were wed

They danced a jig with the Turkey and Pig.

“How joyful and excited we are,

We are,

We are.

How joyful and excited we are.”


What happens next?

Do the Owl and the Pussycat want to settle down? 

Where will they live?  What are their options?

They could:

  • move in with the Pig or the Turkey, maybe build an extension
  • build their own home with wood from the branches of the Bong-tree
  • make a nest in the Bong-tree

Would they like to have a family?

What would their babies be like?  Could they have some kittens and/or owlets?


How does the story end?

Do they have parties with the Pig and Turkey with dancing by the light of the moon and a special meal of slices of ham and a pot of jam?


Task 2

Draw pictures to represent the sequence of key events in your sequel. 

What sequencing words or phrases could you add to guide the reader from start to finish?

        First... Next... After that... Later... Finally
