Week beginning 13th April 2020

This week, in Nursery, we would have been observing and drawing our tadpoles and frogs.

  • Draw and colour in life cycle pictures of birds, butterflies, ducks and frogs. 
  • Encourage the children to name their work (name writing practise) and to write about what they have drawn (encourage mark making and emergent writing skills).
  • Share books and stories about animals and life cycles.

Life cycle books and stories to look for:

  • The Big Wide Mouthed Frog by Ana Martin Larranga
  • Dog on a Frog by Kes and Caire Gray
  • Oi Frog by Kes Gray
  • Froggy Learns to Swim by Johnathan London
  • H Prince by Leo Leonni

 Sing Life Cycle nursery rhymes and action songs:

  • Little Arabella Miller
  • Frog song (life cycle of a frog – Cocomelon Nursery Rhymes and kids songs)
  • Spring is here by the Learning Station
  • Hungry Caterpillar by the Learning Station
  • Little Tommy Tadpole is a popular rhyme (words below)

Little Tommy tadpole began to weep and wail,

For little Tommy tadpole had lost his little tail,

His mother didn’t know him, as he sat upon a log;

For little Tommy Tadpole was Mr. Thomas frog.


All the listed books and stories and action songs and rhymes can be found online mostly on You Tube Kids.
