This is a forest school session exclusively for those that home educate their children.
Based on the philosophy of forest school, this is a child-led session that allows children to develop self esteem and self confidence by spending time in the natural environment .
It is a relaxed group that meet on the first and third Thursdays of the month, except in the school holidays* at Bodenham Arboretum, Wolverly near Kidderminster. DY11 5TB
Activities include den buidling, natural crafts, pond dipping, stream damming, bug hunting, cooking in the fire, etc
The sessions run from 10.30am - 12.30pm, however we will meet at 10.20am for a prompt start at 10.30am.
Anyone attending will need sturdy footwear, warm activity clothes and waterproofs. The sessions are held outside and carry on regardless of the weather conditions!!
The only thing that will stop us is high winds, thunder storms or deep snow!!
All children need to be accompanied by a responsible adult!
The costs for a 2 hour session is:
£4.50 for the first child
£3.50 for the first sibling and
£2.00 for any additional siblings
For example the cost for a family with 3 chidlren will be £10.00 a family with two Children would pay £8)
If anyone would like to pay by bank transfer I would be more than happy to forward my details
In order to manage the sessions I ask every one to pay one session in advance, so at the first attendance you pay for two sessions and then once every session unless of course you miss one.
However if you can't make a session give me a weeks’ notice I will carry over the payment to the next session.
If you would like to be added to my mailing list please let me know.
