Dutch Landrace goats

As part of our topic work about Holland, we looked at a particular type of farm goat found in Holland.  The key story for this sub topic was the story of the Billy Goats Gruff.

The literacy link for this topic was letter g for goat and in our numeracy work, we built a gate around the field that the Billy Goats Gruff lived in to keep them safe from the troll.  To do this we used 13 bits of “wood”.  The children learnt some fun facts about goats.  They were really amused by the fact that goats are good climbers and that some goats actually climb trees!
