Welcome back, we hope you all had a wonderful St Patrick’s Day! This week the classes will be continuing their project about the timeline of the Earth, and this week will be learning all about the Paleozoic Era (from 542 – 251 million years ago!) During this time, life in the ocean developed and became more complex – the first vertebrates and fish with jaws occurred, and plants and insects appeared on land. Amphibians appeared, large trees and ferns developed on land, and winged insects and the first reptiles were abundant. Relating to this, the children will be making their own pictures of the era, and we will be doing some drama pretending to be the first amphibians emerging from the oceans onto the land.
5 Little Speckled Frogs
5 little speckled frogs, sat on a speckled log,
Eating some most delicious bugs – yum yum!

Now there are 4 green speckled frogs!
