The Incy Wincy Spider...


We came into our classroom on Monday and found there was a spiderweb on the floor. We had voted to investigate spiders next and so we were happy to see the spider web.

We watched Jess' Minibeast adventure to find out more about how spiders live.

We went hunting for spiders in our gardens. We found one web and one spider. He was very small. When we came back to our classroom we found one in our bathroom. We put it in a jar with a magnifying glass in the lid and were able to see him more closely.


We learned that spiders had more than two eyes. Spiders can have up to 8 eyes. We made spiders out of plates and pipecleaners. We gave our spiders 6 eyes as many spiders we looked at had 6 eyes.

We sang several songs about spiders and acted out the Nursery Rhyme 'Little Miss Muffet'.

How many? 

We have been comparing minibeasts and their attributes as we have been investigating. We have been counting eyes, legs and wings and we have looked at whether the minibeasts have wings or lay eggs.


Bubble Blowing

We have had such fun blowing bubbles in our room. The more we blew the more the mountain of bubbles grew and even went out onto the table. If we touched them they felt soft.


Finger Painting

We had a chance to do some fingerpainting this week in class.
Some of us chose to have a turn.


The Three Billy Goats Gruff

We read the book and then watched a video before we all had a turn at acting out the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff.

We used our green carpet for the grass, our small steps for our bridge and some blue fabric for the stream. 
"Who is that trip trapping across my bridge?" said the Troll.


This week we cooked and ate cup cakes. We all had a turn putting in the ingredients and mixing it together. We chose what colour icing we wanted on our cakes and then they were spinkled with lots of colours. We ate them and then had a drink of water.

Yum... yum!!!

That is our second cooking experience. The first thing we cooked was popcorn.
