Wild Things - Spring Term

16th January 2020
The school’s after school wildlife club, Wild Things, will be starting its Spring Term sessions shortly. Mr West, Mrs Lochead and Mrs Heinemann run the club from 3.10pm to 4.30pm over eight sessions on a Wednesday each term. 

Each session looks at a specific wildlife topic such as identifying a range of animals and plants, learning about habitats, habitat creation and a whole range of fun activities based around enjoying nature around us. Unlike other school clubs, it is important that the children have an interest in the subject as the emphasis will be strongly focused on learning about wildlife and conservation rather than play based activities.

There is an £8 charge per child for the term to help us to fund membership of the group to the Hampshire Wildlife Trust and purchasing equipment/materials. All children are expected to bring sturdy/rough shoes, warm outdoor clothes (long trousers/leggings are a must) and a waterproof coat as we will be spending a lot of our time on practical activities and the children are likely to get muddy or messy.

The club is for children in Year 1 and 2 and we usually have sixteen spaces available, however I must point out that ten spaces are already reserved for children who did not receive a space in the Autumn Term.

Please do not send in any money until we notify you that your child has a place.

The dates for the Autumn Term sessions are:

  • Weds 22 Jan
  • Weds 29 Jan
  • Weds 5 Feb
  • Weds 12 Feb
  • Weds 26 Feb (After half term)
  • Weds 4 March
  • Weds 11 March
  • Weds 18 March

We will post this information on the school website as well as via Parentmail. If your child is keen to learn about wildlife and would like to join our Autumn Term sessions please register your child’s interest at the school office by the end of the school day on Thursday 16 Jan. We will shortlist the children for the available spaces and notify parents by letter on Friday 17 Jan if your child has a space. 


Best regards

The Wild Things Team
