Welcome back to Victoria Park Infant School

Week beginning 13th April 2020

  • Log on to Education City. Under 'classwork' I have set a task for you to complete; 'On the pond' in the nature activities folder.  ‘Stig’ is with Granny at the duck pond.  See if you can decide what is the right or wrong action.


  • Look for signs of spring from your window, in your garden or when you go out for a walk. 

See if you can spot any ducks, frogs, birds or butterflies.

Perhaps you could feed the birds or listen to the sound of the birds singing.

Look at things that are growing.  New shoots and plants, and watch the trees growing their green leaves and blossom.


Foundation Stage Tadpoles

When school closed, the tadpoles that reception 1 & 2 and the nursery were looking after were returned to the garden pond from which they came from. They are continuing to grow and develop well!  

Mr Vail (Roisin and Orla's daddy) is kindly keeping us posted on their development.

Let’s find out more about our early years tadpoles.  Look at the life cycle chart below this is how our tadpoles will develop. 


Back in their pond all is peaceful and quiet.

Look closely at the video clip and you will see some frogspawn and a few wriggles and bubbles in the water.

Can you see lots of movement in this video? Can you see the tadpoles swim?

Easter Monday - the tadpoles love the sunshine!

Finally a link to one of my favourite songs about frogs:


Paul McCartney’s Frogs Chorus.  I hope you enjoy watching it!
