Spider web

Weaving a web for Science Week

By Fiona Wilkins - March 28th, 2024 | Posted in Article

The theme of this year’s Science Week is time, so in outdoor learning we have been finding out how long it takes an orb weaver spider to construction their web. We discovered it took around 30 minutes  and then we tried to see if we can recreate a web using masking tape.

We tested the web using mini pom poms to act as bugs and see if they would stick in our webs. The boys made some incredible webs and in most cases were quicker that the orb spider.
