Click the link below to the whiterose website and there is a short video explaining the activities for each day
This week the activities and ideas are based around the book 'The Very busy Spider' by Eric Carle
You can listen to the story here:
Follow along with the spider activities for each day. You can find them all below. I have added some extra spider maths activities for you to try as well.
Keep up to date on your phonics sounds and join in with this alphablocks video to practise your letter sounds.
Now you have had a refresher on your sounds, can you work out which letter sound each of the pictures belongs to in the treasure hunt activity below.
Can you find which letter sound has the most pictures belonging to it? Can you find any more objects in your house that would fit this letter sounds?
Gross Motor Skills
Here are several gross motor activities for Chestnut class to try on a larger than life spider web!
Draw a chalk spider web by writing a large X. Next draw another X perpendicular to the first one. You will end up with what looks like an eight lined snowflake. Beginning in the middle, connect the lines with arches increasing in size to create the finished web. Alternatively, if you want a more permanent web you could use painters tape or masking tape indoors. Hopefully it might look like this:
Now that you have a kid-sized spider web there are several games you can play!
Fine Motor Skills
Keep your fine motor skills moving by practising these activities below.
Did you know that spiders have 8 legs and most spiders have 8 eyes. This fact will help you in your headband craft below:
Have a look at the I Spy Transport picture below.
Can you name all the different types of transport?
Pick your favourite mode of transport and design your very own version of it. Draw and colour your picture carefully, make sure you name your new creation! Talk to a grown-up about your design. What can it do? How does it move? What special parts does it have? You can try and label some of the parts on your picture. Send your creations into Miss Scrivener at email@example.com and she'll add it to your class page on the website for you.
