The frogs are back!

We have been engaged and fascinated by the return of the frogs to our school pond. The frogs return, because they originally hatched out of frogspawn, laid in our pond. Our pond has been an established habitat in our school grounds for a number of years, so every year we observe more and more frogs returning!

The frogs have already laid some frogspawn. The frogspawn is in its early stage. Look at the black dots in the frogspawn. The dots are the frog’s eggs. The eggs will change shape quickly and turn into tadpoles.

One of the frogs looked like a ‘prince’.

Next week, following on from this observation, we are going to share and explore the fairy tale ‘The Princess and the Frog’.
