Meet the tadpoles!

Hello, I hope you’re all safe and well at home.

I thought I would share some news from my garden.  At the end of each winter we have lots of frogs appear at our pond. One year we counted 54! This picture was taken in the middle of March.

Shortly afterwards the pond begins to fill with frogspawn. It looks like big blobs of jelly!

Each little blob is an egg. We’ve been watching closely – and hoping the goldfish didn’t eat them!  

A tadpole pushes its way out of each egg. These tadpoles are about four weeks old now. The next stage will be for them to grow legs. I’ll keep watching and share pictures with you when they do.

In the meantime, I’m sure you’ve all seen the wonderful stories in the Kingsland Story Corner. Please let us know what you think. I hope you enjoyed the first virtual assembly too. Watch here if you’ve not seen it yet.

Take care and please email with any questions or to say hello,

Mrs McGilp

Welcome back!

We hope you are all well and have had a lovely Easter break.

New learning will be coming later on today. In the meantime, why not start the next Kingsland Challenge – origami with Mr Swinney! Part 1 is making a bookmark. Please share pictures of your origami creations.  We’re going to try too!

Hello and happy holidays!

We hope you are all well at home. We’ve missed you all and our classrooms the last couple of weeks, but we have been so impressed with all of the learning you’ve been doing at home and how well you are working with your brothers and sisters. We are both very proud. Thank you to everyone who has shared so far.

We will post new activities on Monday 20th April.  Until then enjoy the Easter break and stay safe!

Mrs Lloyd and Mrs McGilp
