Rosie and Jim

Our resident ducks, Rosie and Jim, will welcome you to Gateway Primary School.


The duck eggs arrived in EYFS on Monday 27th March. The first duckling hatched on Tuesday 28th March and the remaining 5 hatched on Wednesday 29th March. Once all the ducklings had dried, they were moved from the incubator to their cage. We learnt to stroke them gently and then after a few days we were able to hold them. When the ducklings were big enough, four of them went to live in a different school and we kept two. 


The whole school worked together to raise money for the duck's Eglu and run. Caitlin and Elsa won the name the duck competition and the ducks were named Rosie and Jim.
