Julia’s instructions:

This week, Max sent us a letter asking the children to write him and his family instructions for how to cross the road safely. He came and collected them the next day!

How to cross the road safely without a bash – a guide for hedgehogs

Have you ever dared to cross a busy, noisy road? By listening carefully to these easy to follow instructions, there will be a small chance of being flattened. Good luck!

You will need:

Cardboard box

A human

A road (black and white)

Instructions

  1. First, get a cardboard box (there should be one next to a litter bin).
  2. Next, write (with a white, bricky chalkstone) “deliver to the newsagents.”
  3. After that, jump into a box and wait.
  4. Meanwhile, wait for the box to move (this is a human lifting it).
  5. Wait a couple more seconds and feel a drop.
  6. Now get out of the deep box.

Finally, you should have reached your destination. Hope you enjoyed these instructions!

Taha’s Story:

In English, we have been retelling a Chapter from our Class book (The Hodgeheg) from a fictional character’s¬†perspective:

When I was giving coffee to my favourite customer, I looked out of the porthole shaped, tiny window. When I could stick my head out, I saw something spikey and brown rolling into a ball. It was a hedgehog! But a lorry was heading just on top of him..

Luckily, the lorry driver saw the hedgehog to swerved just in time. “Yesssss” I shouted. I was so excited for the little thing to cross safely.

But suddenly, a shiny, bright blue bicycle rode along heading for the hedgehog. It flew away like a rock in a catapult.

Caitlin’s Story:

In English, we have been retelling a Chapter from our Class book (The Hodgeheg) from a fictional character’s¬†perspective:

As I was cleaning the bubbling plates, I noticed a tiny, cute hedgehog creeping to the edge of the noisy, busy zebra crossing.

“Oh no, there is a spikey creature trying to cross the road!” I explained to the first customer walking through the creaking door. (They looked at me weirdly for a second).

Just as more people came in, I decided to look out of the window again. This time he was stood there like a pedestrian trying to cross. I was so terrified, I nearly knocked off the plates…
