Play Investigations

Before moving into play we shared the text –  Tiddalick the Frog

Comparing the Text

Today we read the story and compared it with the story we watched yesterday.

Keth – Tiddalick drank all the water – which is the same. And the snake made it laugh.

Elnathan – The eel tangled itself and that is the same.

Felipe – One frog was blue and the other one wasn’t it was green.

Emily – In the other story the frog got big.

Bibi – The one we watched the frog got swirls in his mouth and the eel made him laugh it got little swirls. Yesterday it was just all blue. (The different ways the water is shown coming out of his mouth)

The owl was still there.

At the end of this story it said Tiddalick was only going to drink what he needed.


The children then moved into play investigations. After play we talked about the learning powers we were using and recorded our play before we went home.

Have a lovely night – stay safe.
