Get up close to a spider! We will be using magnifiers and microscopes to take a closer look at some familiar UK native spiders: finding out where they live, what they eat, the different types of webs they make and going on a ‘spider safari’ to find some spiders ourselves. Have a go at drawing a spider from first hand observation.
