Hello all, here we are at another week of school holidays which I am sure many parents are pleased about, as home school can be a headache. Since it is Monday that means it is facts day.

Kiwi birds are blind and hunt by smell

The Mola Mola or Ocean Sunfish, lays up to five million eggs at one time

84,119,500 pound coins were made by the Royal Mint in the year 2000 alone.

In the film Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, a young actor named Joe Sowerbutts provided the voice of Harry Potter when the voice of Daniel Radcliff started to break.

Over the last 150 years the average height of people in industrialised nations increased by 10cm's or 4in

I had NO idea in the world about Kiwi birds! I take it that they do not fly. That would be a disaster!
When you informed us about the coins minted by the Royal Mint...I misunderstood for a split second and took it to mean WEIGHT! Now THAT would have been something indeed! A 84,119,500 pound in weight, coin!
I'll excuse myself as I am unused to coinage of the Realm.
