Wild Things - Spring Term 2023

11th January 2023

Wild Things – Spring Term 2023  

The school’s wildlife club ‘Wild Things’ will be starting its Spring Term sessions on Wednesday 25 Jan. Mr West, Mrs Lochead and Mrs Heinemann run the club from 3.10pm to 4.30pm over eight sessions across the term.   

Each session looks at a specific wildlife topic such as identifying a range of animals and plants, learning about habitats and habitat creation and a whole range of fun activities based around enjoying nature. The emphasis will be focussed on learning about wildlife and conservation and it is essential that your child has a considerable interest in conservation and wildlife in order to get the most from this club, as it is not a free-play activity. The children should be able to follow instructions and take part in hands on outdoor activities (including tool use) and in all weather.   

There is a £10 charge per child for the whole term to help us to fund the group for purchasing equipment and materials. All children must bring in sturdy/rough shoes, outdoor clothes (legs must be covered) and a waterproof coat as we will be spending a lot of our time on outdoor practical activities and the children are likely to get muddy or messy.    

The club is for children in Year 1 and 2 and we have eighteen spaces available for the term.    

Please do not send in any money until we notify you that your child has a place, as Wild Things can be a very popular club.

If your child is keen to learn about wildlife and would like to join our Spring Term sessions please register your interest by emailing office@hook-inf.hants.sch.uk, with the subject title "Wild Things" before 3pm on Weds 18 Jan. We will shortlist the children for the available spaces and notify you via Parentmail if you are successful securing a place for your child.   

Best regards
