Spooky Spider Webs (Year 3D)

Year 3D decided to have a ‘spooky’ themed afternoon. Spiders are often used to celebrate ‘spooky’ events so we started off by talking about how spooky spiders actually are. We came to the conclusion that spiders can be very friendly and helpful in catching all of the irritating flies we find around the house.

To begin, the children went off in search of spider webs in the school grounds. We found very few unfortunately but the children did discover plenty of fungi!

We then discussed how spiders catch their prey by spinning webs using a sticky silk. To understand more about these webs the children used sticks, apples and yarn to create their very own spider web.
