Hedgehogs and Badgers

Road Safety Week

This week we are exploring these topics and are putting some things to do and stories on our Facebook page.

We also have a task for you this week, the task is…..

Can you put your socks on?

This week, practice putting your socks on!
We know this can be tricky and frustrating and you may say you can’t do it.
But, you can do it! ????
It just takes practice (and time and patience from our adults).

Let us know how you get on and if we need to celebrate with a WOW moment. ????

Hedgehogs

Hedgehogs are ‘Nocturnal’ animals, this means they come out at night time and sleep in the day. If you see a Hedgehog out during the day it may need some help.
Can you name anything else that is Nocturnal?

Hedgehogs have over 5000 spines! That is a lot of spines, these are raised or lowered depending on the threat level. A Hedgehogs stomach is very vulnerable to it’s predators which is why it curls up in a ball.
Can you curl into a tight ball?

Tuesday 17th November

This week we are also looking at Badgers.
Do you know what a badger looks like and what colours they are? Can you do a picture thinking about what a Badger looks like?

Badgers are mammals, that means they are warm blooded.
Cats and dogs are also mammals.

Please do look at our Facebook page for more activities.

Good Morning everyone , how are you today? How are you feeling? So yesterday was Tuesday, do you know what today is? It begins with a ‘W’……..That’s right, it’s Wednesday. We hope you are looking forward to today.

Let’s find out about Hedgehogs ????????

Hedgehogs use their snouts and ears more than their eyes to hunt because their eyesight isn’t very good (although they can see quite well at night).

Hedgehogs hunt for insects, slugs, worms, caterpillars and berries. They will use their snout (Nose) to sniff these out.

Hedgehogs can walk 2 miles every night, that is quite a distance for little legs. How far can you walk?
