Following a whole-school election, the children decided to name this year's classes after dogs. The corgi has been used as herder since the 10th century. In those days, pastures were considered common land, so there were no fences. In order to keep a farmer’s cattle together and separated from other herds, corgis would nip at their legs to herd them. Because of their closeness to the ground, corgis had easy access to the cows’ ankles and were difficult targets of the retaliatory kicks of cattle. Corgis are a particular favourite of Queen Elizabeth ll.
