Spider facts and frogspawn

Acers started their morning with an exciting discovery today! When we looked in the pond to check on our frogs, we found that they had laid some frogspawn. Everyone was really keen to look at it, so we  took turns to kneel down and had a very close look. We could see the little black dots inside the  eggs, which will develop into tadpoles.

Acers really enjoyed the predator and prey game introduced last week, and were keen to play again today. This time, they were much quicker at reacting and at working together to keep the mouse safe from the owl!

After our game, we gathered round the log circle to discuss spiders…then everyone went looking round the site to find a special spider fact. We took the facts back to the log circle, and took turns to read them to the class.

Once we’d listened to and discussed all the spider facts (like-male spiders are smaller than female spiders, spiders have 48 knees, they have hairy legs, they have 2 body parts and 8 legs, they have eyes, a mouth and a stomach in the front body part, they make silk, which comes out of the back part of the spider…) we all stood around  the web we made last week and took turns to crawl under to take off more spider facts. We matched these with the first set, trying to remember who had got each spider fact.

Acers really enjoyed their independent choices in Forest School today. The mud kitchen was very busy producing all sorts of muddy dishes and the digging pit was a hive of activity-all on a  worm finding mission!
