Hope you are all well, last night we had a visit from "Spike". We got a lovely photo of him eating his supper (see below). You can see his prickles and his black shiny nose. Hedgehogs are Nocturnal animals which mean they are awake at night.

Perhaps you could draw a picture of a Hedgehog ?

Stay safe,

Hi everyone, hope you are well and staying safe.

I have got a new friend visiting my garden, he is a Hedgehog and I have called him "Spike".

He only comes out at night when it's dark and I have been putting out some cat food for his supper.

They are very shy creatures, but if you are quiet you might see one in your garden too.

Take care 

Love Mrs Walker

This week we all made Apple Crumble. We mixed flour,sugar and butter together and then sprinkled it over the apples. The cook put it in the oven for us to cook and when it had cooled we all tasted it, yummy it was delicious.

Over the last couple of weeks we have been supporting various charities, such as Remembrance Day and Children in Need. We dressed  up and did lots of creative crafts.
