Outdoor Home School Learning Sessions
Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
Forest School with a difference. Each week we develop our fire-lighting and camp cooking skills whilst immersing ourselves in nature. As a trained Science and Psychology teacher we investigate the world around us by taking part in outdoor investigations where we also develop our maths skills as we go. Our sessions are limited only by our imaginations!
