Nature school is the perfect option for homeschool or flexi-school families.
Nature brings us an abundance of learning opportunities. In our nature school, we will be learning many outdoor skills and making the most of what the environment has to offer.
These sessions will be child-led and relaxed making it suitable for all ages and abilities.
After every session children will receive a certificate for the skill they learned to acknowledge their achievements.
Every child will be given a nature jotter in which they can draw, write, use it as a nature scrapbook or use it in whichever way they want to express their nature experiences. We feel journaling is an important life skill that allows children to express their experiences and emotions, the nature aspect of the journal will develop their relationship with the environment.
