There is a wonderful selection of short stories about birds here.
Choose one or two of the stories and read them out loud together. Talk about how the different characters in the story might have felt. What might happen next? What was your favourite bit of the story?
How has the story inspired you? Can you respond to it in your own creative way? You could draw a picture, make up a poem or a song, design a dance like a bird, write a different ending or continue the story in your own way.
Write your own bird story
Watch for birds in your garden or the park and imagine the stories they might star in. Could you write a story about a bird you have seen? Think about who their family are, where they live, if they have friends and what they like to do. What kind of adventures might they go on?
