Hi again! So every year, as we know, tadpoles hatch from frogspawn. Before the lockdown, I had been busy trying to find frogspawn to show you but to no avail! Now, frogs, tadpoles and frogspawn are all protected creatures and it is illegal to remove them from the wild, except for teachers. We are allowed to take a small sample to show our classes. So, yesterday a good friend of mine told me where she had seen tadpoles and luckily it was within 2km of my house! I set off with a jam jar and net and brought a small sample home. I set up a new home for the tadpoles using a plastic container, some rocks for shelter and some water and grass/moss from the river. The tadpoles have settled in very well. They are at the stage now where their tails have grown but there is no sign of their legs yet. At this stage they still have gills to breathe under water. As they get bigger they develop lungs to let them breathe on land. As they develop more I will post more pictures. There are about 20 of them so if anyone would like to suggest some names for them, please send them on.
We are The Shamrocks.
We are in 4th Class.
Mr. O Toole is our teacher.
Our tracksuit days are Thursday & Friday.
