小编摘要:你也许听说过或遇上过双胞胎同学,但是如果一下子有5对双胞胎成为你的新同学呢?近日,英国的一所小学迎来了5对双胞胎学生。幸运的是他们身上各有自己独特的标志,细心的老师们已经很快能分辨谁是谁了。

导读:作为老师的噩梦之一就是班上有一对双胞胎学生,而你竟然分不清谁是谁。所以想象一下当五对双胞胎同时进入新学年的开学时,那些教师们该有多困惑了。上周,在约克郡的一所小学里,确实发生了这桩新奇事儿,十个4岁的双胞胎小孩排队走进了教室准备上课。

Having twins in your class - and not being able to tell one from the other - is a teacher's nightmare, so imagine how confused staff were when five sets turned up at the start of the new school year.

That's what happened last week to teachers at Quay Primary School, Bridlington in Yorkshire, when the 10 four-year-olds trooped into the classroom ready for lessons.

Harry and Jamie, Jasmine and Lucy, Alysa and Keira, Connie and Dylan, and Ruby and Jake make up one-sixth of the school's total intake of foundation pupils this year.

Luckily for the teachers only Harry and Jamie and Jasmine and Lucy are identical, and head teacher Lyndsay Baldock denies the school will have double trouble handling the new unusual students.

She said: "We have two other sets of twins in the whole school, so to have five in one year is very rare. I've never known it in my six years here and our office manager has never known it in the 25 years she has been here. They are not all identical. If they were, I'm sure the teachers would find a way to cope. They get used to pupils' names quickly and can distinguish them from something as little as their laugh and height."

Ms Baldock continued: "To help us out, Harry and Jamie's mum has cut a portion of hair off the fringe of one of the boys. Of the other identical twins, one has a freckle on her nose to tell them apart. Another set is not classed as identical. Their features are identical, but their hair colour isn't. The twins are already independent and happily playing with other children."

Ashleigh Slater, mother of Jake and Ruby, said: "It is unusual for five sets of twins in one year, but I knew there would be a few in the class. When I was going to Bridlington Avenue for the check-ups, I was told there were seven sets born that year. The staff said it was the most sets of twins they had ever had there. There must have been something in the water, or the wine."

Cherry Burton Church of England Primary School has also seen a record number of twins arrive at the school this year.

Teacher Jade Clark said there were three sets of twins in the reception class: Andrew and Finlay, Katy and Edward, and Eliza and Toby.

She said: "It's the first time we've had three sets of twins and they are the only twins in the school at the minute. Although Andrew and Finlay are identical, Andrew wears glasses, so we can tell them apart. They all seem to be settling in well and making new friends."
