Tadpoles!

During the half-term break, Miss Ames visited her Dad’s garden and found some frogspawn in the pond. She brought it to school, along with an old fish tank and set it up on an investigation table.

We watched closely for a few days and then the tadpoles began to hatch out from the eggs.

Unfortunately, some of the tadpoles did not survive and Miss Ames also took some back to the pond to avoid overcrowding in the tank.

We now have two healthy tadpoles in our tank and having done some research, we have found that they love lettuce to eat!

We have also read some books to enable us to find out about the changes that our tadpoles are going to go through over the next few weeks. We are very excited to observe them and see what happens!
