Youngsters in Tipton St John have received a boost to their wildlife project after receiving a hedgehog home for a local developer.
David Wilson Homes presented the primary school with a ‘hogitat’ which is specially built for the mammals to house in during hibernation.
The children have spent the term learning about nature and wildlife with a series of visits and talks.
As part of the project the pupils took part in a wildlife challenge day at Seaton Jurassic to learn about the challenges faced by wildlife in the local area.
They also enjoyed a visit from author Alexander Martin, the author and creator of Stanley Smartpants.
