Home Education Group

Ages – 5-11 years
Times -10am-2pm
Cost – £175 (7 sessions)

These sessions are held in a private woodland with the Foresteers at Greenhead House Farm, S35 0HN.

They are facilitated by Hayley, a qualified teacher and level 3 forest school practitioner, and Jess, a level 3 forest school practitioner.

The sessions are balanced to provide a chance for skill development, collaborative learning and individual reflection and wellbeing time.

Monday 6th June – Camp building
The group will take ownership over their site and learn how to put up tarps, create a fire and seating area, make dens and take ownership of their learning space. We will look at flora identification in the woodland.

Monday 13t June – Fire
The group will learn about materials needed to make a fire, how to prepare them and make a fire lay. We will prepare food to cook on the campfire and share stories and songs around the fire whilst keeping warm. Children will not need a packed lunch for this session as they will cook their own.

Monday 20th June – Nature Craft
During these sessions we will get creative with the resources in the environment. We can explore natural colour, texture and shape to create an art piece.

Monday 27th June – Meadow sweeping
The children can participate in meadow sweeping, identify and record their findings.

Monday 4th July – Tool use
We will explore tools and use them safely to make an item of their choosing.

Monday July 11th – Team Games
We will explore a range of completive games and the rules that surround them, archery from their own bow and arrows, tug of war and mud pie throwing.

Monday July 18th – Peer mentoring and Celebration
For this final session children will discuss what skills they have gained that they would like to teach a small group of children at our preschool. The children will plan and resource their experience to carry out.

Every session has the opportunity to follow individual interests, to have some reflective time in the hammock, to be creative in the mud kitchen and to explore the woodland. Participants will be supported to build friendships, to become confident as an individual and to build resilience.
We are fully outdoors so all participants need to be dressed appropriately and to bring a bag, which they can carry, with a spare change of clothes and additional layer. They will also need to bring a packed lunch and drink except for session 2 where they will cook their own lunch.
