As part of our strive to become hedgehog heroes, Year 2 approached the workers who come into school to cut our grass to ask them if we could put some of our special stickers onto their machinery. The stickers from the British Hedgehog Preservation Society are bright yellow and remind people to check the area for hedgehogs before using the equipment.
We have also been learning how to look after hedgehogs in our gardens. It is important that they keep hydrated and so we have placed little water dishes around the edges of our wildlife garden. Next week we are going to design and make a hedgehog feeding station!
Please don’t think our wildlife garden is messy. There are two sections of it that we are keeping overgrown in order to attract all the different types of creatures. So far we have seen bees, moths, beetles, slugs, rabbit and many more living things enjoying the area.
