Hedgehogs in Year 2

Last week in Year 2, our topic got off to an exciting start with a visit from Hedgehog Rescue! Yvonne, who rescues and rehabilitates hedgehogs came to speak to the children and taught them lots about the small, spiky animals. The children listened brilliantly and asked relevant questions to learn more about them.

After the event, the children wrote down some of their favourite parts of the visit and thought about how they could look after hedgehogs in the future.


“I found out that baby hedgehogs are called Hoglets.” – Maddy

“I found out that hedgehogs can’t see very well.” – Oliver

“My favourite part was when the hedgehog rolled into a ball.” – Leo

“To look after a hedgehog, you must give it water and dog food.” – Riley W
