Monday Writing: Spider Facts

This week we are learning all about spiders!

Where do spiders live?

Are spiders insects?

What do spiders eat?

With your adult, look at the information on the Powerpoint and find out the answers to these questions and more fascinating facts! Remember to ask if there are any words that you don’ understand.

**Now write a fact/a few facts about spiders that you found interesting.**

 E.g. Spiders spin a web so thay can cach flies.


Things to remember to be a good writer:

  • Think about your letter formation
  • Are there any phase 3 digraphs/digraphs you can use in the words?
  • Any longer words, remember to chop them up into parts to make it easier to sound out for writing
  • Finger spaces needed between each word
  • Use a capital letters and full stops

Monday Maths: Investigating quantities using more or fewer


You will need:15 small objects for counting and 3 containers to sort them in to


** In this lesson we will compare quantities using the words 'more' and 'fewer.' At the end of the lesson you need to listen really carefully to the clues to work out how many passengers are in each carriage of the train.**


If you would like another activity, then use the sheet below to compare the amounts of fruit on the trees. Make sure that you say some sentences using the words ‘more, most, fewer and fewest’.


Can you be a superstar learner and use the maths star words today?

*more, fewer, less than, greater than, is equal to, compare  *
