So one day he readies himself at the edge of the path and when the man turns green he tries to run across the road. Now, obviously, it's a really simple and quick read -- though at least I think there are no plot holes. It's anthropomorphic, though written as if the narrator is a part of the hedgehogs' world, rather than the humans' world. This Planning a Non-chronological Report Year 2 English pack includes a detailed lesson plan, an engaging set of slides for the teaching input, and differentiated resources.

The next morning at the crack of dawn a family of hedgehogs cross the road with the help of the lolipop lady, and they all make it to the park. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. The illustrative language and use of adjectives is very helpful for children to extend how they describe things and to think about things from a different perspectives. Max lives in the garden of 5A with ‘Pa Hedgehog’, ‘Ma Hedgehog’, and his three sisters, ‘Peony Hedgehog’, ‘Penny Hedgehog’ and ‘Petunia Hedgehog’. Whilst children enjoy this story, it's length and being largely text-based with fewer illustrations means I would recommend it for use with early Key Stage 2 children.The Hodgeheg tells the story of Max, a hedgehog who bumps his head after an attempt to cross the road.

The Hodgeheg’ is the story of Max, a young hedgehog who wants to play in the park; his only obstacle is a busy road. This book would be very useful for teaching children about road safety in a PSHE or citizenship lesson. There are some nice little realistic details, like the description of the difference between a juvenile and an adult hedgehog, and how noisy young hedgehogs are (it really is true). He wrote a great number of children's books, including The Sheep-Pig (winner of the Guardian Award and filmed as Babe ), Harry's Mad , Noah's Brother , The Hodgeheg , Martin's Mice , Ace , The Cuckoo Child and Harriet's Hare (winner of the Children's Book Award in 1995). This Writing a Non-chronological Report Year 2 Lesson Pack contains everything you need to teach a successful English lesson, including differentiated report templates and non-chronological report checklists to support their writing.

You can't help but grow to love the main character, Max and you end up rooting for him to eventually cross the road. Children will then independently find information in extracts of the story and record what they have learnt about hedgehogs. King-Smith also uses the fact that Max is a hedgehog to be able to describe human objects in an unfamiliar way. Max's first attempt is at a zebra crossing, where he injures himself receiving a nasty bump on his head. Max sets out to find a safe crossing which is proving to be difficult and dangerous, however he's determined not to give up.

He and his family have spent their lives dreaming about reaching the park, but are prevented from doing so by the main road which they are unable to cross. This book woud also be an excellent first chapter book for independant readers in years 3 and 4, dependant upon ability. The Hodgeheg is a children's book written by author Dick-King Smith, who specializes in animal books. He is halfway across, but then the humans from the other side approach and he gets pushed around and is unable to get to the other side. Children will need to decide which is better, making sure to look carefully for features of a non-chronological report.The story focusses on Max the "hodgeheg" who tries to devise a way in which hedgehogs can cross the road safely. He does so and, after the driver of a milk float almost crashes to avoid him, Max arrives home safely.

The included slideshow presentation for the teaching input will show them two paragraphs, both containing the same facts but with one being more detailed than the other. In addition to a valuable lesson on road safety, there's another very inspiring message that children can take away from this story. A detailed lesson plan, a slideshow for the teaching input, and differentiated worksheets are all included in this Features of a Non-chronological Report KS1 English planning pack!Max provides some valuable lessons to young adventurers, but above all it is an inspiring little story about a hedgehog who simply was not willing to give up in his quest, which at times was filled with danger, for a solution to the problem facing hedgehogs.
