A talent for tap dancing, an adventurous spirit and the ability to inspire reading and writing – introduce your KS1 pupils to Speckle, a very special spider indeed.
Look at alliteration, hold a class talent show and follow Speckle’s journey for worldwide fame through numerous countries in this KS1 book topic from Judy Clark.
Emma Dodson’s eccentric book, packed with flaps and inserts to explore, follows the fortunes of a rather unappreciated spider, Speckle.
Desperate for fame, fortune and to thrill the world with his astounding razzle-dazzle dancing, he sets out on a journey of discovery.
Inspired by his friend Mr Flip Flap, the flea who is travelling the world with a flying circus to great acclaim, he leaves his home in the Bahamas (by banana boat, of course) on a quest to show the world how special he is.
