Home Educator Sessions

Home Educator Sessions

26 Apr 2024 - 20 Dec 2024

Flag Fen Archaeology Park

Enjoy a variety of activities ranging from; hands-on galleries, clay crafts, tours, arty activities and storytime, with other home educators. Our home educator sessions are packed with curriculum and nature-focused activities, each month featuring a unique theme. Some of the sessions are based on skills and subjects taught in our Flag Fen schools learning sessions and others will include an educational focus on seasonal festivities and subjects outside of our schools and learning programme.

Home Educator Sessions

Home schooling families are welcome to visit as individuals or as part of a home education community or group.

During Home Educator sessions we relax the age groups so that older and younger siblings can attend our schools' events together. While the content and style of the session is targeted at KS2 (Age 7+), it's still a great opportunity for socialising and networking with other Home Educators in the area.

Children must be Reception age 4/5 and above to participate.
