This week as part of our mini beast topic we have been learning about SPIDERS!
We have learnt that spiders are not insects but arachnids. They have eight legs and only two body parts. They lay lots of eggs which hatch into baby spiders called spiderlings.
We have read the story by Eric Carle called ‘The Very Busy Spider’ and sang the nursery rhyme Incy Wincy Spider.
During the week we have made up our own spider stories and acted them out.
Made webs on the painting table and creation station.
Caught spiders at the funky Fingers table and at the tuft spot.
Labelled spiders, made spiders, counting spiders and other activities too!
