On Monday last
week it was the first day back from the holidays of term one so I got up early
and got ready for school. Once I was at school I got ready for school we started
off by doing some spelling. After awhile the bell went for lunch. Once I had
finished eating I went out to play soccer. While I was playing I saw a giant
spider the grass so I ran as fast as I could and got away from it. About five
minutes later the bell rang, so I headed towards the classroom.
When I was back
in the classroom, we did some maths then we did some language until the bell.
Once I got home and did my homework I decided to bring a jar with me to catch
that spider. The next day I put the jar in my school bag and headed towards the
bus. On the way there I saw heaps of spiders which were all weird and colourful.
I was at school
the whole day and it never turned up so I came home with no spider. The next day
I went with my dad to school and out jumped a spider from a little hole in the
car. It was the spider I saw at school so I got my jar and tried to catch it I
just missed it so I tried again but it jumped back into the hole.
Once I was back
in school about five minutes, there was a spider crawling on the wall it was the
same spider so I got the jar out of my bag and caught it. I asked the teacher
what type it was. She didnít know so I asked if I could look it up on the
computer and she said yes. It was a Huntsman and a big one too. I also found out
that it was a female.
We left her
there overnight. When I was at home I tried to find something for her to eat.
Everything I saw flew away or hid. Luckily the next day my friend Aaron had
caught a cockroach so we fed it to her. The next day it looked like the there
were two spiders in the jar because it had shed its skin. At lunch I found a
caterpillar so I fed it to the spider.
The next day my teacher said
I have to let it go. I decided to let it go after school at home. At lunch I
tried to find something for her to eat. I found a cockroach and fed it to her.
It was her final meal with us before I let her go. On the way home my dad saw
that I caught that spider so I told him that it was a Huntsman and how long Iíve
had it at school and I also told him that I had to let it go. As soon as I got
home I let it go in the backyard and I still miss her now.
