Week 4 - Spiders! 

This week we are  going to learn all about spiders!

Literacy 

Listen to the spider poem with your child. Can you find any spider webs in your garden? 

 

 

This weeks story is "Aaaargh Spider !"

Talk about the story together. How does the spider feel?How do you think you would feel? have you ever felt sad or lonely?  What do you think it would be like to have a spider as a pet?

 

 

Mark making -  Try making marks on different surfaces. For example- foil with felt tips or cotton buds dipped in oil . If you hold it up to the light afterwards you will see the marks you have made. Why don't you try drawing a spider's web? You could draw one on the ground with some chalk too!

Maths                                                                                                                         Cut out the spider template attached below. It has no legs! Can you add some pegs to the spider's body by using pegs? Add numbers to some pegs ( 1-8). Can you put them in the right order around the spider's body? Say the numbers with your child, and point to each one. 

Cooking                                                                                                                 Bake some biscuits with a grown up - see the recipe attached below. When they are cooked turn the biscuits into a spider by adding some icing, and then sweets for the legs and eyes. Count the legs onto the spider and make sure there is the right amount! 

Creative: 

This week's song is Incy Wincy Spider - have a look at the video! Can you join in with the words and the actions? 

Mark making -  Try making marks on different surfaces. For example- foil with felt tips or cotton buds dipped in oil . If you hold it up to the light afterwards you will see the marks you have made. Why don't you try drawing a spider's web? You could draw one on the ground with some chalk too!

 

 

Make a spider!                                                                                                            Make some holes around the edge of a paper plate or circle of card. Encourage your child to thread wool or string through the holes, back and forward across the plate. This will help their hand eye coordination and will make a nice web pattern.

Move like a spider!                                                                                                     Try pretending to be a spider by crawling along the floor. How do your legs move? Imagine being a lot smaller, What does the world look like from down there? Make a web in your garden using different objects and crawl around it. 

 

Extra quiet time challenge                                                                                        Try hanging some items from the washing line if you can, for example scarves, old cds/dvds, kitchen utensils like forks or spoons, different materials etc.  Lie down and watch the light hitting the objects, see how they move, and if they make any sounds. Encourage  your child to use their own words to describe the movements the objects make.
