A very busy spider and very busy us!

Greetings Penguins!

This week we shared another story by Eric Carle, author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. This week we met The Very Busy Spider.

What is an author? (someone who writes books)

What is an illustrator? (someone who draws or paints the pictures for books) 

What can you tell your adult about what happened in the story?

As your challenge activity this week you wrote a letter to the Very Busy Spider suggesting new fun things she could do instead of spending all her time weaving her web. Working with your adult can you come up with some new ideas for her? 

How do we start a letter? (With ‘Dear’ or ‘To’)

How do we end a letter? (‘From’ or ‘Love from’)

In the playlist below are videos of the two Eric Carle stories we already know as well as two new ones; watch them all and see what similarities (things that are alike) you can notice? Think about the language used, the characters and what happens in the stories. 

In maths this week we revised measurement and shape.

Can you see some 2D or 3D shapes around you? Which properties can you identify? (number of sides in 2D shapes, faces, edges and vertices in 3D shapes) 

Can you measure something that is short and something that is long

Have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing, playing, talking, homework and of course don’t forget to comment on the blog!

Our Show and tell order has possibly got in a bit of a muddle…Blue Team had their turn on Friday so this coming Friday it will be Red Teams turn for Show and Tell.

I look forward to seeing you again on Monday! Please bring trainers or plimsolls for outdoor PE! 🙂

  1. All the animals asked the spider 🕷 if she wanted to play with them but she was very busy spinning her web 🕸
    When the spider 🕷 finished she caught a fly and she fell asleep because she was very tired from working hard spinning her web.



  2. The guy who write the books.
    Who draw the books.
    To Spider,
    You have to play with the pig to have some fun when you finish your web.
    From Younes Spider-man.
