Home Ed group – Wed PM Sept/Oct
This is our weekly Wednesday afternoon session for Home Ed families.
We will be doing a series of bush-craft, nature ID and tool use activities with a different theme and focus each week. The group will run every Wednesday during term time from 12:30 to 2:30pm.
Snack will be provided (hot drinks for adults plus fruit/biscuits and squash or water for children). In the last week we will have a campfire.
Sessions will start on the 7th September and run for 7 weeks up to the 19th October. Pay-as-you-go sessions are available for £8 per child. When you book a PAYG session we will assume it is for that coming Wednesday – please contact us if you are booking for a later date so we know when to expect you.
The group is primarily aimed at school age children – approx 5 to 12 years old – but it is very flexible and younger or older siblings are welcome to attend. We will provide a range of levels of activities and have lots of resources at site that work well for all ages (mud kitchen, rope swing, den-building etc.). The Forest school ethos is child-led so whilst we will provide some themed activities we do always stress that these aren’t compulsory. We try to notice and respond to children’s interests so themes may be adapted or changed from week to week.
Each session will start with a safety talk and introductions around the fire circle, an explanation of the activities and then children and families can free-flow around the site. Adults are expected to attend and join in with the activities.
Plenty of shelter, a car park and a composting toilet is available. When you book on you will be emailed directions and joining instructions. If you haven’t received an info email 2 days before the session please get in touch. Thank you.
