LEARNING to make a difference

Week 2



Task 1


Look at the front cover of our new book: ‘The Spider and the Fly’.


Predict what you think will happen in the book.

What makes you think this?

What kind of characters do you think the spider and the fly will be?


Task 2


Watch the following video of ‘The Spider and the Fly’ poem up to 0:38.


Predict what you think might happen next now. Why do you think this?

Has your prediction from Task 1 changed or stayed the same?


Task 3


This book is based on Mary Howitt’s poem written in 1829.

 Therefore there are lots of difficult and old-fashioned words used in the story.

Watch the rest of the story and create a glossary of all the words that you do not understand.


E.g parlour = living room
