A “Big Question”

I have realised how much all the children in class 2 like to think about things and share their ideas, so each week I thought it’d be a nice idea to have a “Big Question” to think about over the week, which can help us in our topic and science lessons.

So, our first “Big Question” is:

“Can a hedgehog live in the Arctic?”

Have a think about this question and share your ideas with someone at home. We will learning about hedgehogs and other animals – from this country and from polar places – this week!

Have a fantastic weekend!

    That’s a really interesting question. I’d love to know the answer too! One thing I do know about hedgehogs is that babies are called hoglets, which I think is so cute!

    Really?! I didn’t know that and I’m sure I should have. I’ll think about your big question too but we do know rather a lot about the Arctic in class 1 so I’m sure our class could answer your question quite easily.
    We’ll have a chat on Monday and get back to you!

    They curl up and hibernate in leaves in this country – would they hibernate in mini snowballs?

    That’s a very interesting idea, Mr Wilson. We learnt that Arctic foxes curl up into a ball too, but they do at least have a large, fluffy tail to keep them warm!
    Ms Lamb, we’re very interested to find out what you think in Class 2!

      That’s a very good point, Nellie! I recently learnt that hedgehogs wake up from hibernation for a few weeks in winter, eat some more food to build up their fat, and then go back to their hibernation sleep again.
