Life Cycles

This term in Science we have been looking at growth in animals. So far we have learnt about the life cycle of a chicken and a human, and this week we learnt about the life cycle of a frog.
The children were very excited when the play dough came out! We went through as a class what the life cycle of a frog was. We spoke about how a frog begins it’s life as eggs which is known as frogspawn, then the eggs turn into a tadpole and eventually into a tadpole with legs and then it grows into a young frog before growing into an adult frog.
A fun fact we learnt was that a frog lives for up to 10-12 years, but not many tadpoles survive to become a frog.
The children all had a go at making the life cycle of a frog with each table having a different stage of the cycle. Next week we are looking at the life cycle of a butterfly.
