When we found ‘Spiky’ the hedgehog outside our classroom he was injured and needed our help. We decided we wanted to make an ‘animal rescue’ centre and a ‘dark den’ so that we could care for injured animals and find out more about hedgehogs. We gave our ideas to our teachers and they helped us to create the two areas. We role play with our friends and already have helped make several animals better. Spiky the hedgehog is much better and we have made a lovely nest for him – we went outside and gathered leaves and twigs so that he would feel comfortable. Pippin the dog loves having his coat brushed and going on walks with us too.
