Remember to keep practising sounds and story green words and speedy green words. You don’t have to do all at once, just the ones you need the most practise with.

Day 3 Handwriting You’ve got this!


Can you recall what the spider was able to do in the story? How did he show the family that he would make a good pet? Write one or two words in each bubble instead of a whole sentence. For example, we could write “feed itself” or “dance”.


I have put an instruction sheet on with what to do for your maths activity today. The first page is a warm up activity.

You need number cards 1 to 12 and a pile of cubes or counters or raisins!

It can be 1 to 10 or 1 to 20 depending on how confident you child is with numbers above 10.


Look at the page from the story. How has Lydia Monks created the spiderweb effects.

Display some images of spider webs and  show the children how the spider builds it. www.conservation.unibas.ch/team/zschokke/spidergallery.html

Children experiment to draw a spider’s web using silver paint or crayon on black paper or draw with PVA glue and add glitter to make it shine like in the book.

Children understand that different media can be combined to create new effects and experiment to create different textures.


Dear Postman story – You should be able to read lots of these words (this can be read throughout the week)
