Wild Things - Summer Term

24th April 2019

The school’s wildlife club ‘Wild Things’ will be starting its Summer Term sessions on Thursday 9th May. Mr West, Mrs Lochead and Mrs Heinemann run the club from 3.10pm to 4.30pm over eight sessions each 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 around us. Unlike other school clubs, it is important that the children have an interest in the subject as the emphasis will be strongly focussed on learning about wildlife and conservation rather than just 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, purchasing equipment and materials. All children are expected to bring sturdy/rough shoes, outdoor clothes 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 have sixteen spaces available for the Term. As it is the last chance for Year 2 children to attend Wild Things before moving up to the Junior School, we will be giving them preference for this term.

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

The dates for the Summer Term sessions are:

  •          9 May
  •          16 May
  •          23 May
  •          6 June (after Half Term)
  •          13 June
  •          20 June
  •          27 June
  •          4 July

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 Summer Term sessions please register your child’s interest at the school office by the end of the school day on Thursday 2nd May. We will shortlist the children for the available spaces and notify parents by letter on Monday 6 May if your child has a space.

Best regards

Mr West, Mrs Lochead and Mrs Heinemann
