Guinea Pigs

Welcome to our new school guinea pigs

Our two guinea pigs are now settling into their new home at school.


All children are welcome to visit the guinea pigs at break times. There will be a weekly rota so that each class will be responsible for helping to care for them. This means cleaning out their cage, feeding them twice a day, giving them clean water and giving them a stroke and a brush. The guinea pigs also like to be read to and they are very good at listening to problems and worries.


We are holding a competition in school to choose their names - Mrs Taylor will be announcing the results in assembly on Friday.


To find out more about our guinea pigs and how to help care for them, please see the documents below.
