Last week, Class 4 saw a hedgehog on our school yard. We knew that this meant the hedgehog was probably poorly as they are nocturnal animals. We put it in a box and kept it warm and rang the National Hedgehog Preservation Society. They gave us a number for a lovely lady called Dawn who came and picked up the hedgehog. She is going to care for it over the Winter as it needed food, warmth and had some ticks that needed removing. Dawn is going to bring Prickles back in Spring to her habitat at school.

Class 4 have been learning about shelters in design technolgy and homeless in PSHCE/UNCRC. We discussed how all children in the world should have a shelter like ourselves but unfortunately there are some children who don’t. We decided that this was important to us and we wanted to raise awareness and money for the charity CRISIS, who help homeless people. We are going to have a school sleepover at school,build shelters, have a soup kitchen and see what it is like to be homeless.
Taylor Shaw are kindly donating to us soup and homemade biscuits.

On Wednesday 30th September Vision North East came to see us. Their names were John and Louise. Louise was John’s helper. John was blind and partially deaf in one ear. He had a plastic eye so when he took his glasses off he could hardly see. He took his glasses off and tapped his eye and we could hear a tapping noise. He had a beeper to tell him what colour the clothes were. He also had a talking tin. You put the talking tin on the food and it told him what food was in it. Instead of our normal clock he had a talking clock. also he had a talking kettle.
