We have found out what type of spider Steve was. He was a cardinal spider. They are the largest spiders in the UK and can grow up to 14cm. Steve was about 10cm and Mrs Lowe said he was the largest spider she has ever seen in a classroom. Cardinal spiders were named after cardinal Thomas Woolsey who was scared by them at Hampton Court in the 16th century. We decided that Steve was too beautiful to be scared of.
