Did you know?

  • Goats and sheep don’t have teeth on their upper jaw.  They have a hard palate that helps them grind their food.
  • Goats are great companions for other farm animals, including horses, cows, and chickens.
  • Sheep make a bleating sound. A baby lamb can identify its mother by her bleat.
  • One mature ewe (female sheep) produces 7 to 10 pounds of newly shorn wool a year – enough to make a man’s suit.
  • The chicken is the closest living relative to the T-Rex.
  • Some breeds of chickens can lay coloured eggs..
  • Chickens have over 200 distinct noises they can make for communicating.
  • Pigs are considered the 4th most intelligent animal (after chimpanzees, dolphins, and elephants).
  • A group of pigs is called a “sounder.”
  • Cows can recognize their names (though they may not come when called!).
  • Cows have a memory of about three years.

Letter-join

Welcome to our new handwriting scheme. Handwriting is a very important element of school life, and the associated skills need to be taught carefully. We have adopted the Letter-Join strategy for handwriting across the entire school and cursive script will be taught to everyone. We would love you to encourage your children to practise using the new letter formation! Details of how to download resources are available below.
