Our Forest School Programme for home-educated children is the perfect opportunity for primary aged children to interact with other children and form friendships, whilst participating in a range of engaging activities that develop essential life skills. Children will benefit from improved confidence, self-esteem, teamwork, communication skills, gross & fine motor skills, problem solving skills, and some academic concepts (such as shape & measure). 


These sessions are aimed at primary aged children that are home-educated, whose parents want to provide them with regular access to an alternative form of education. 


Sessions are 4 hours and include a hot chocolate and snack. The sessions are generally child-led, but a range of activities will be offered over the course of the programme, including:

  • Fire lighting, maintenance and safety
  • Cooking skills
  • Team activities, such as building dens, bridges or tree-houses
  • Tool use and tool safety
  • Arts, crafts and activities using natural resources
  • Basic knots and lashings, and their uses
  • Tree climbing and building obstacle courses
  • Among many others
