Sliding and jumping

slidingandMum: Do you know what happens to frogspawn?

Son: Yes. The balls will pop out of the jelly and then they’ll turn into tadpoles.

Mum: What happens to the tadpoles?

Son: They grow legs, then their tail shrinks, then they grow little things – like frogs do – and they jump around and then they turn green and then they get bigger.

Mum: And they hop around on lily pads?

Son: Yeah, and they sometimes use the lily pads as slides or those things where you jump… highboards – in swimming pools – they use them as that, you know. They bounce on them and go: “Wheeee! Splat!”
