Guinea fowl 

Native to Africa they can be found in jungles, forests, grasslands, scrublands, savannas, semi-deserts and for a short while at Darrick Wood Junior School. As adults they have a bare head and neck while the rest of the body is coveres with dark grey or black feathers with small white dots. 

Guinea fowl walk behind farm animals to colect food they leave behind. They play a very important role in the control of ticks and flies. They are strong flyers but prefer to sprint to escape from predators (Usain Bolt is slow compared to these!)

Christmas Show Costumes


Please see below the costume your child will need for the Christmas Performance. As you can see, some costumes are provided by school. We would kindly ask that all other costumes are provided by parents and are brought into school by morning registration on Tuesday, 5th December.


Please don't go spending a lot of money on the costumes. For example, if your child is an animal, a t-shirt and trousers/leggings in a relevant colour, along with some appropriate ears on a headband, will be more than sufficient. If you could manage a tail as well (particularly important for sheep - it's part of a song!) that would be brilliant.


If you have any concerns regarding your child's costume, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me via the school office.


Many thanks,
