Wild Things is the School's wildlife club which is run by the school's Mr West & Ms Heinneman and Mrs Lochead, who have both previously worked here. The club is held on selected days after school, for 8 sessions per term.
We focus on a range of wildlife topics based around fun activities, enjoying nature and the great outdoors. The children will learn about specific animal groups that can be found locally, such as bumblebees, ladybirds and spiders, as well as learning conservation techniques and skills such as recording, habitat creation and tool safety. Not every season is the same so tasks can vary each term and also year to year. Previously we have built hedgehog homes, minibeast hotels, survey equipment and boundary fencing.
Please see the Wild Things page for more details, links and downloads and read our Wilder School blog for some stories of our activities. These are found under the "Our Greener School" tab.
