Good morning everyone!  Hasn’t it been a wonderful weekend, the sun has been shining and we’ve had some lovely blue skies.  What do you think the weather will be like today?

Let’s start our day in the normal way by updating our calendar and saying our prayers.  

Literacy – Our story today is called The Wide Mouthed Frog.  Maybe you’ve already heard it, it’s a great story which I hope you’ll like.  https://youtu.be/dbtEYnbidLg.  Can you remember what animals the wide mouthed from met?  What different things did they eat?

Maths – Today we are going to try and match the digit to the correct number of frogs.  Can you put them in order starting from 1.  counting and matching numbers

Frogs – Do you know what a baby frog looks like?  When they are first born, they don’t look a frog at all.  In fact the grown up frog lays a lot of eggs.  Inside the egg grows what is called a tadpole.  Not long after this, the eggs hatch and  the tadpoles swim around.   After a while the tadpole grows legs and is called a froglet.  And then finally after a bit more time, it becomes a frog. Have a look at this, it show what happens.  This is called the life cycle of a frog,  Frog-Life-Cycle-PowerpointDo you have any questions that you’d like to ask your grown up about frogs?

Can you cut out these pictures and stick them onto the sheet to show the life cycle of a frog.  Frog life cycle

Physical – Do you know how a frog moves around?  Yes, they jump around from lily pad to lily pad.  Can you get right down and then jump like a frog.  Remember to go right down and make sure your hands are touching the ground before you jump.   Can you make a frog noise while you are jumping too?  

Nursery Rhyme – Today I’d like you to join in with this great nursery rhyme – 5 little speckled frogs.  https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/nursery-rhymes-five-little-speckled-frogs/zjjbnrd
