Save Our Hedgehogs

We are constantly working to make our children more aware of

environmental issues and what they can do to help. We are looking

as a school at the issue of endangered animals and creatures in

Britain. This Autumn term we are going to learn about hedgehogs.

They have declined in numbers over the years to a critical point

and they are now on the list of endangered creatures in Britain.

The children will learn about these creatures and what simple

steps they can undertake to help them. One simple step is to make

a hedgehog home in your garden. Attached is a leaflet to show you

how you can make a simple home. Also on the school website is a

power point shown to the children with more information about

hedgehogs and simple homes you can make.

The children are being asked to send in photographs if they make a

home and to send in updates and progress if their home is moved

into by a hedgehog.

Children who bring in a photo will be awarded a certificate for

their efforts by the school Eco-Council.
