Yr 5-6 Can sheep count?
Summary of theme
Entry point introduces theme with video showing sheep with numbers painted on them and then asks "Can sheep count?" this introduces topic with a 'Big Idea'
Idea behind video is to get pupils to think about how animals like sheep and lambs are different although this difference may not always be obvious to us - hence lambs look alike to shepherd and clearly could not put any separated lambs and mothers together without giving them all corresponding numbers. Video then explains how sheep have a much keener sense of smell than humans and it is this which ewes use to identify their lambs.
