Spider web fun and facts

Last week, one of Acers children built a fabulous string spider web…which led onto questions from some children about spiders.

So-this week we learnt lots about spiders…but as always in Forest School, we learnt in a fun and challenging way!

Mrs. Smith had hidden lots of cards around the forest, with interesting things about spiders on them. First we found one each, read them and kept them safe in our pockets.

Then we found  these  Spider facts  hanging on the string web.

Mrs. Smith challenged us to take turns to be spiders-to fetch a fact from the web…then to find which one of our friends had the matching fact! Sometimes we had to crawl under the web, sometimes we had to step over…or pop an arm, a leg or our head up through the web! We needed to concentrate, follow instructions and balance carefully! It was great fun!

After hot chocolate and a biscuit, we chose what we’d like to do…

Some children looked for a forked stick to make their own spider web!

While others enjoyed more mud painting…this week trying to paint within the lines of a picture, or adding string to the big web or playing on the seesaw!

At the end of the session, we remembered lots and lots of things we had learnt!

      They sure did! Acers have been brilliant, and Robbie always has lots of great questions for us. He also remembered that spiders are arachnids
