Home Education Days at Sacrewell

The Sacrewell Learning Team are pleased to announce we are once again able to host home education days! Our aim is to schedule two events over the spring and summer.

The first of these events will take place in April 2022 and is all about wonderful soil! We offer two different style days depending on the needs of your learners. The standard day on Thursday 21st April will have space for up to 10 learners and their adults in each group. For learners who may find a large group overwhelming, we offer a calm alternative day on Friday 22nd April, which will allow for a maximum of 3 learners and their adults per group: a slightly slower pace and a quieter atmosphere. 

Please see below for an outline of the activities that will be available and the programme for each day. To secure a space for your learner, please book tickets here.

If you have any questions about our Home Education Days, please contact us at learning@sacrewell.org.uk

Activities for the Day

Super Soil: A healthy planet starts with healthy soil. Join us for an interactive large-scale exploration of the mysterious world under our feet, learn more about how we can support the life in the soil, including an introduction to composting.

Soil Shakers: Discover the key components that make up our topsoil, their qualities, and what makes soil “healthy”, through a range of tactile experiments.

The Soil Factory: Get up close to the gardener’s best friend – our fascinating earthworms! Explore Sacrewell’s own wormery to learn about what the worms, and the other life in the soil, are busy doing beneath our feet.
