Hedgehog Friendly Award


As part of our Outdoor Woodland Learning (OWL), Bluebells are working towards The Hedgehog Friendly Award for Primary Schools. 


One of our Forest School sessions per week will be dedicated to completing activities that will gain points towards the award. 


Exciting news -  we now have 22 points and we are 8th on the leader board! Which means we have now achieved our BRONZE Hedgehog Champion Badge.

Look at all the hedgehog sightings around our local area!

This is our picture story of Wally the Bluebells Hedgehog. Enjoy!

Life Cycle of a Hedgehog

How to help a Hedgehog at home.

What to do if you find a poorly hedgehog!

Hurrah! We finally installed the hedgehog house in the woodland! We think it will be a lovely, cosy place for a little hedgehog to sleep!

Bluebells Woodland Litter Pick March 2024

Bluebells Litter Pick February 2024

And so the Hedgehog house build begins! We worked hard to carry the bricks and made a model house which is in the garden until we can decide the best place to move it.

We completed a litter pick in our school grounds. We were quite surprised to find that our school grounds were actually quite tidy.

Using our Topic lessons to learn about Hedgehog facts!

Having fun playing the Bug Banquet game!

Our super cute Hedgehog crafting - using loo rolls and leaves!

We have created Hedgehog feeding and water stations throughout the woodland. We have used old pans, bricks, and even plates which we have buried. We are checking the feeding stations and adding more food every week.

Bluebells took part in a Hedgehog Assembly via Microsoft Teams - delivered by Hog Friendly Society!

We used hand-tools (loppers and saw) to find woodland materials to create a collection of Bug hotels throughout the woodland.

We loved reading and learning fascinating facts about Hedgehogs.

Who knew our woodland was such a great spot for Hedgehogs! Log piles and over-grown areas are PERFECT for them! They even have their own feeding station and water source.
