Fact Hunters: Football, Names & Crackers

This week we have had a tremendous number of interesting facts being shared by the children. Congratulations to the following children who have amazed us with their ability to hunt out interesting snippets of information:

Jon Moody
Athletic Bilbao FC has prided itself on never signing a “foreign” player to its club. And by foreign, they mean non-Basque. The Basque Country, is made up of three provinces: Bizkaia, Gipuzkoa, and Araba

Holly Clark
Did you know that the legal age at which you can buy Christmas crackers is 12? Just make sure that the person you send out to buy some is old enough!

Joe Bowden
Romford is first recorded in 1177 as Romfort, which is formed from Old English 'rūm' and 'ford' and means "the wide or spacious ford".

Kaine Painter
Did you know that the eyes on a flatfish aren’t always on the top of its head? In many species, both eyes migrate through and around the head during development. Some species face their left sides upward, some face their right sides upward, and others face either side upward.
