Archie’s Letter:

This week in English, children have written letters to Worksop council, asking them to build a hedgehog crossing as the poor things keep being flattened by cars…

Dear Mr Dolan,

I am writing to you to say that hedgehog numbers are going down by 50%. Soon these little spiky creatures will be extinct in future generations. Do these little things deserve this? We want the next generation to have little, spiky creatures too!

Did you know that in 2010 there were 6 hedgehog accidents? A person named Johnny Blaze was driving in a Plymouth road and suddenly he swerved and a monstrous, devilish truck came flying in the other direction, clipped his bumper and sent him flying. As the car was burning, he was trapped under the soft, metal steering wheel. They just pulled him out in time!

There are 25 hedgehog deaths a week , vets can’t keep up. They’re leaving animals left untreated (like dogs, horses, cows, sheep, parrots and parakeets).

In conclusion, if you built a crossing for the hedgehogs, the roads will be 70% safer and there will be less casualties.

Yours sincerely,

Archie.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to you because everyday I walk out and 5 hedgehogs have died because they have been hit by a car. So I have had an amazing idea. We could build them an underground tunnel that is safer!

Vets cannot look after our cats and dogs because hedgehogs are needing more help. Vets cannot have a single rest.

Have you every wondered what it’s like to lose someone everyday? Well hedgehogs do but you can change that by making a tunnel for them. It is as simple as that.

Thank you for your time,

Yours faithfully,

Lily

Jaden’s letter:

Dear Jones,

I am so sad that 20% hedgehogs have died. There have been 30 sightings of hedgehogs dying this week so I really need you to build a hedgehog crossing to help.

It may sound ridiculous (maybe even bonkers), but the hedgehogs need some way of crossing. There have been 140 vans and cars killing hedgehogs in the past 7 days so can you please build a hedgehog crossing? Have you ever had a pet die?  Hedgehogs are kind, spiky cute animals and they shouldn’t be treated like this.

At the vets, other animals are dying more quickly with the amount of hedgehogs that are being treated.

I hope I have persuaded you.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Steve.

Jayden’s balanced letter:

This week in English, children have written letters to Worksop council, asking them to build a hedgehog crossing as the poor things keep being flattened by cars…

Dear Mr Mat,

I am complaining about hedgehogs getting ran over. I understand if you don’t like the spiky cute things, but other humans do. Also, just last week, 20 hedgehogs were killed because the vast, non-stopping cars swerved and this also killed 3 pedestrians. How would you feel if this happened to you?

First, I would like to ask if you could build a hedgehog crossing across the busy road. We all see that it will cost money, but hedgehogs do things that humans can’t. For example, they eat slimy, disgusting slugs and snails.

Also, all the vets are getting full because too many hedgehogs are getting hit by zooming, enormous cars. How will hedgehogs survive if we don’t build a crossing? If this carries on, all our spiky, puppy eyed friends will become extinct!

I hope you will build a crossing for our cute friends.

Yours sincerely,

Jayden

Dr Mr Councillor,

I am writing to you to complain about hedgehogs dying. (It is bonkers). You need to build an underground hedgehog crossing.

Only 50% of hedgehogs are left. This is terrible because they eat all of the insects so these don’t eat your plants!

100 have died in the last 2 days , that’s 50 a day you know. They are cute and harmless animals. The vets can’t keep up with all of the injured hedgehogs, it’s not a hedgehog hospital!

I hope this letter will encourage you to make a hedgehog crossing,

Yours sincerely,

Harvey

Thomas’s Letter

This week in English, children have written letters to Worksop council, asking them to build a hedgehog crossing as the poor things keep being flattened by cars…

Dear Mr Calladine,

I have written this miserable letter to you because on Brooning Street, over 15 hedgehogs have died just yesterday. Isn’t that mad?

Hedgehog numbers are going down by 30% every month. You need to save these endangered animals. They are one of the best creatures because they keep worms and other wriggly things away from our gardens.

Yours sincerely,

Thomas
