Pond Dipping Provides Understanding of Life Cycles

9th May 2014

Recent pond dipping activities at Forest School have provided the children at WPS with a wonderful real life opportunity to learn about the life cycle of a living thing as part of our science curriculum. Last week, the children collected samples of tadpoles from the ponds at Wimbledon Common and carefully brought these back to school in buckets, complete with all the necessities the tadpoles will need to grow and develop, as part of our ongoing life cycle investigation. Throughout the week, the children have been busy caring for and eagerly watching the tadpoles grow in our outside play area, and will soon return them back to their homes. Both Miss Jess and Miss Polly have been thrilled by the engagement and excitement of the children in our life-cycle investigation. “Through taking part in the the collection of the tadpoles at Forest School, the children now have a wider understanding of an important element of the science curriculum objectives based on hands on experience. The result is that the children are inspired and learning comes easy.” See photos from the children’s pond dipping activity here.
