More frogs

Today a scientist named Diogo from Portugal. All the children in room 2 decided his name was Frog Man and continuously addressed him as this. Diogo loved this name.
He thought us about frogs in Connemara. We watched some short and interesting videos about frogs. In between these videos Diego played some fantastic games! We learned about the food chain and of the importance of keeping the ponds litter free. We had a recycled paper airplane flying competition. We watched a frog jump high up in the air. We thought it looked very like our fizzy rockets. We loved it all and a big thank you to "Frog Man"

Goodbye to our frogs

Kay (our very friendly garden advisor) came to admire our tadpoles and frogs.   She is taking them back to the pond from where they came, so that they can lead a nice interesting froggy life in their pond.  We transferred them to their travel container and said "goodbye" to them.  We will miss them in our classroom, but we know they will be happy in the wild.
