Week 4: 27/04/2020

This week we are thinking about life on the surface of a pond.


  • Revise the letters; g, o, c, k.  Can you practice forming the letters correctly so that they are facing the right way and sitting on the line?  Can you draw/write objects that start with these initial sounds?
  • Can you read this frog poem and copy out the tricky words?
  • Can you research insects that live on the surface of a pond?  Choose one insect and draw a picture of it and write a sentence about it.
  • Listen to the podcast on Cbeebies radio about frogs.

  • Can you make a model of a pond?  Use whatever junk modelling materials you have around the house.  Cotton buds make excellent bull rushes, the bottom of fruit shoot bottles can be cut to make colourful lily pads.
  • Make a frog spawn painting by using old bubble wrap and printing with it or water down paint and use a straw to blow into it to create bubbles.  Then place paper over the top to print the bubbles.
  • Can you make a paper plate lily pad?
  • Try this diving frog science experiment.
