Meet my new pal, Hannah Hedgehog!

WALKING to school in the rain is fun!

I have to put on my Wellington boots (all four of them!), my raincoat, and my hat. I’ve just started Year 1, so I have lots of exciting work to do in class, and my teacher Miss Potts is really nice.

I made a new friend on my first day back, she’s called Hannah and she’s a hedgehog.

When it was lunch time she opened her lunch box and it was full of slugs and snails! Eugh!

I asked her why and she told me that slugs and snails are a hedgehog’s favourite food, and that now it’s autumn she must eat as many as she can.

This is because hedgehogs sleep all winter! Before they go to sleep they must eat lots of big dinners so they don’t get hungry and wake up before spring.

I like eating, but I also like running around, jumping in puddles, jumping in piles of leaves, and I especially like Christmas.

Imagine sleeping through Christmas! Hannah doesn’t have Christmas, but she says she still gets presents, because when she wakes up the sun is shining, and there are lots of new plants to snuffle around in.

I’m writing this after school for handwriting practice – my w’s are getting better every day.

Next I’m going to read a book from school with my mum. I bet you have an exciting new book to read too.

Why not tell me what your favourite thing about school is? Whether it’s play time, story time, drawing, or even maths!

Let me know what you like best about being back at school!
