What's the saying? 'The grass is greener on the other side of the fence.'

It certainly appeared to be so for a Herdwick ewe and her lamb on Monday, when they appeared on the school field, happily grazing. They were very content as you can see in the photos. Mrs Cador and Mrs Rowlands took up new roles as private investigators, trying to find out where they had come from. They asked lots of local people but no one seemed to know or they didn't belong to farmers or small holders who were mentioned. Mrs Cador was quite excited at the prospect of possibly being able to keep the sheep at school! Perhaps keeping sheep would be a little too much?!

By Tuesday afternoon their owner had been traced and the sheep were on their way to being reunited with their flock.

Gardening Clubbers — don't worry, they didn't eat any plants or vegetables in the school garden; they were just penned there briefly before being loaded up for their journey home!

What a busy couple of weeks it has been.After a lovely Christmas break the children were straight back working hard on 8th January. For the first week we focused our learning on Treasure Island to ensure that the children thoroughly understood the storyline before our visit to the theatre on 9th January. We looked at 'treasure' and what special things constitute our treasures and why...
