For the next couple of weeks we are going to do lots of work around mini beasts. For our first English session this week have a listen to ‘The Very Busy Spider’ by Eric Carle. Do you know any other stories by him? Try to join in with some of the words.
Using the letters in the word minibeasts, what other words can you make? Make a list of the words you can find – e.g. Bin. It might be easier to write each letter on a post-it note or separate bits of paper.
Can you draw and label a spider? How many legs does it have? What is special about your spider?
Can you make some fact cards about the minibeasts?
Draw a picture of each minibeast and write a profile of it
e.g. It has ________ legs
Its eats _________
It lives in ________
Write an acrostic poem about spiders. Use question words to help you with ideas, What, When, Where, Why, How
