Forestry Home Education Group (2-12 years)

Alternate Fridays during Term Time (Starting 9th September)

Our Forestry Home Education Group is designed for home educated children and their parents/carers to come and spend time outdoors learning & exploring!

During term time sessions a typical day may involve making dens, mud pies in our mud kitchen, whittling sticks, exploring and identifying the mini beasts around the Arboretum, singing or reading a story around the campfire while toasting marshmallows or cooking popcorn. Children will have the opportunity to use various tools and learn many skills which aren’t available in the classroom or at home.
