Growing and Changing

Nursery have loved watching our tadpoles grow and change into frogs in just six weeks!


Mr Read kindly donated us some frogspawn from his pond and after a few days of eating the jelly, tiny tadpoles wriggled out. They soon grew long tails and started to swim about, getting bigger and bigger by the day. Next, back legs appeared and the tadpoles started to surface to breath air.  Their front legs then sprouted and we had to lower the water and put a rock in the tank for them to climb out onto. In less than a day, their tails started to shrink and it was time to release them into our big sink outside so that they could climb out and hop away into the long grass. Nature is truly amazing and we feel very privileged to have watched this transformation.
