About the event

Forest School is a specialised, play-based series of sessions that hand over learning to children while being facilitated by a trained leader. As a result, they thrive from the real-life experiences that occur in the stimulating woodland.  

We are currently offering Forest School sessions for children who are home educated as a block booking for the term. This is to encourage the same group to work together at each session as part of our Covid safe procedures. The sessions will take place weekly starting on Wednesday 9 June until Wednesday 14 July (6 sessions). 

Dates: Wednesday 9, 16, 23, 30 June, 7, 14 July

Suitable for children of primary school age. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Please come suitably dressed for the weather as we will be outside for the whole session.    

Advance booking essential. You only need to book a place for the child attending and not the accompanying adult.
