Guinea Pigs

Welcome to our new school guinea pigs

Our two guinea pigs, Patch and Mr Nibbles have now settled in to 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.



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