Hello Hobnob the Hedgehog


Today Clare AKA Turtle was back in 2nd class and she brought a very special visitor with her…. A hedgehog called Hobnob.

She told us lots of interesting facts about hedgehogs and about Hobnob himself.

We then put our text books to good use and used them to make an animal pen in which Hobnob roamed around.

After that we all got a chance to hold Hobnob 🙂

  1. Wow, Hobnob is adorable. I’m so jealous I didn’t get to meet him in person. 2nd class you are so blessed to have Owl and her friends visit you and teach you so many wonderful things about nature.

  2. Hi Miss Breen, I looked at all the Hobnob pictures. I found out that each hedgehog has 5000 spines which lasts about one year and then falls out and then will grow a replacement. Anna

  3. Hi Miss Breen,
    I would’ve loved to have seen Hobnob and I bet he was really cute.
    Did you know that while hunting for food they use two of their senses hearing and smell.
    They do this because their eyesight is really bad. :0

  4. Hi Miss Breen
    I have three facts about hedgehogs.
    1. Hedghogs start to hibernate around October and end in April and sleep under a nest of leaves.
    2. People should always check for hedgehogs before lighting bonfires
    3. At its nighttime wandering looking for food, it can walk 1 or 2 kms.


  5. Hi
    I have a few facts about Venice here they are:
    Venice is built on more than 100 small islands in a marshy lagoon in the Adriatic sea. People in Venice don’t travel in cars, instead they travel by a boat called a gondola. Venice has about 150 canals.Venice got it’s first female gondolier in 2010. There are more than 400 pedestrian bridges spanning the canals in Venice. Over 15 million tourists visit Venice every year.
