Mrs Fisher’s Babies

Little Acorns had an unexpected but very exciting delivery left in their classroom. Along with the mystery delivery, a note was left too. The note, from Mrs Fisher (a pregnant frog), asked the children to take care of her babies until they were old enough to go back to her pond. Mrs Fisher said she was worried about birds mistaking her eggs as food! The children happily agreed to help Mrs Fisher and followed her instructions to prepare the tank for her babies. The children laid a handful of gravel at the bottom of the tank and collected fresh pond water from the school pond. The next day Miss Philpott brought in Mrs Fisher’s babies. Once Mrs Fisher’s babies had climatised, they were added to their new, temporary home. It was a surprise to see how different Mrs Fisher’s babies looked compared to her! We can’t wait to watch them grow and change from frogs spawn, to tadpoles, to froglets and lastly to frogs.
