A description of how hedgehogs live throughout the different seasons. In spring, hedgehogs like to eat snails and slugs, and are able to find food due to their good sense of smell. In the summer, the supply of food is plentiful with plants, fruits and berries all available. In autumn, hedgehogs eat as much as they can to build up body fat for the winter. In winter, hedgehogs fall into a deep sleep called hibernation.

Could be used as a stimulus for children to investigate changes in their own environment. Pupils could make observations and drawings throughout the year and compare with the clip as the seasons change. The clip could also provide a stimulus for children to write and perform their own hedgehog poem, perhaps in a hedgehog shape.
