OCEAN Road Primary School’s pre-primary students have welcomed two new pupils of the furry, animal kind into their classroom.

Two lambs, five week old Ruby and four week old Cloudy, from Pre Primary teacher Ms Michelle Grover’s family farm have made the classroom their home.

The lambs have played an important part in the students learning of the science and digital technology curriculum.

“The students are currently learning about food and fibre and we’re focusing on is what produce comes from the farm,” she said.

“We’ve also been talking about why the rain in winter is necessary for farming, the lambs needs and what they need to survive.

“Students have helped them stay safe because they’re taking care of them and feeding them milk to survive.”

Ms Grover said the students had developed positive relationships with the animals.

During lunchtime, when she’s on duty, she would put the lambs on leads and the kids would walk them around in the playground.

“The students have loved having them and a lot of them said they love to come to school just to see the lambs,” she said.
