During one of our nature walks during our Spring term topic we found a pond with tadpoles. We managed to capture some and took them back to nursery. We used the internet to find out about the best way to care for them and discovered that boiled lettuce was an excellent food source. Luckily Sue and Margaret had been growing lettuce with the children so the tadpoles were well fed until we bought some fish food. The children have been extremely engaged in watching the tadpoles grow into frogs, and it has been an excellent way to learn first hand about life cycles. The frogs will be released back into the pond the children found them in.
On our blog you can read about all the things we get up to in the nursery.
