English KS1: Tiddalik the Frog

The Aboriginal story of Tiddalik the Frog is told in two short video episodes for KS1 pupils. There is a new Resource Pack to go with the animation full of worksheets and suggestions for activities - suitable for use in school and at home.

Tiddalik is so thirsty he drinks all the water in the stream, the river and the billabong... until the land is completely dry. What will all the other animals do?

Click here for the complete animation (both episodes combined).
