Junior School pupils found a hedgehog in the playground on Friday! We phoned Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust and put it on speakerphone so all the children could hear. The Trust gave us the number for Hedgehog Rescue and advised us to keep him in a box indoors and to give him some water. We were then visited by a lovely lady who picked up the hedgehog to take to a lady called Leslie in Ilkeston who has an animal hospital for foxes, badgers and hedgehogs.
We were told that he was a fully grown hedgehog and not injured but underweight and he would need feeding up before being released.
It’s the Anti-Bullying Alliance’s anti-bullying week from Monday 13th November to Friday 17th November.
We were visited by two Broadcast Journalism students from Nottingham Trent University last Friday to interview Andrew (Junior School Deputy Head Boy), Amelia (Junior School Head Girl), Asher (Senior School Deputy Head Boy), Bronwyn (Senior School Head Girl) and Mrs Howlett on this topic. We discussed different types of bullying and what we do at Hollygirt to combat it.
We will be talking about bullying with pupils in house time and in our Issues lessons.
Year 1 loved counting cars yesterday afternoon. We saw one bike, three motorbikes, six vans and five buses. Ella counted 84 cars! We also learnt how to use the pelican crossing and to cross the road safely.
