Spring at last and all around the country farms are full of newly born lambs and calves. The pupils at Scoil Aonghusa were delighted to receive a visit from a 4 day old pet lamb which was brought in by one of the families at the school. All the children had the opportunity to feed the lamb his morning bottle and learn all about him. 1st/2nd/3rd class teacher Mrs Noreen O’Regan used the opportunity to teach the children about sheep farming and they discussed breeds of sheep, names of adult male (ram) and female (ewe), how and why they were farmed for wool, meat and milk and what they ate. The children then put their writing skills into practice and wrote an essay about sheep farming.
