Fish in a Tree home ed. programmes offer children between the ages of 6 and 11, an opportunity to take part in a programme of exciting experiences in the woods.
All the sessions are imagination based, with activities often being derived from a theme. Themes include dragons, aliens, woodland folk and magic! Although sessions are themed and planned, children always get plenty of opportunity to contribute their ideas, and planning allows for sessions to be child led. The children are supported on their own individual learning journey and exciting voyage of discovery.
Activities are always designed to have a purpose and to be engaging, motivating and achievable, with natural resources from the woodland being used for related practical activities.
During the sessions, the children have the opportunity to develop their confidence, concentration, problem solving skills, literacy skills and team skills.
The sessions take place between 10am and 12pm in the beautiful, gated Forest Schools woodland, on the first Thursday of the month, at Elvaston Castle .
