Can you spot the frogs spawn?

Can you see the tadpoles which are changing shape?

Can you see the tadpole that has a tail and eyes beginning to form?

Week 3 - Can you spot the newt coming out to play?

Look at the tadpoles in the tank can you see their legs and tails growing?

Week 4 - How have they changed since the last video? What is different in the tank?

Week 5 - Can you spot the eyes? How has the skin changed? How would you describe the tail? Does it look similar to anything else you have ever seen?

I like watching the tadpoles swimming around! They are much bigger now. I’m excited to see them turn into frogs! From Mackael :)

Avanae James's mummy(less than a month ago)

Mummy and Ava managed to identify the tadpoles I explained to Ava where tadpoles come from and what the tadpoles turn in to. Ava enjoyed watching the tadpole videos, after we finished talking about tadpoles we decided to draw tadpoles and frogs.
