Home education is becoming an increasingly popular option for families in Worcestershire and we have a growing community that are able to offer each other support. Between us we have years of experience in educating children of all ages and are able to organise and put on a range of activities.
We hold meetings usually at least weekly, throughout term time at various locations round the county-for example:
- Social gatherings occur monthly in North Worcestershire for all ages, with both indoor and outdoor games plus organised activities such as climbing/zip-wires/grass sledging for 8+.
- Monthly meeting in Worcester with games, music and crafts for all ages.
- Monthly social meeting in south Worcestershire, including indoor and outdoor games, group music session and a drama group.
- Bowling or Ice skating most months.
- "Education group" workshops organised regularly. Recent workshops have include: Marvellous Mosaics' 'Gunpowder plot' 'Medieval life', 'Making Music' and 'Creative Writing.
We also meet up with people from neighbouring counties and many of us go along to the national camps and gatherings that are organised by home educators throughout the year.
We have a Worcestershire Home Educators Newsletter (WHEN) that lists all of the activities for the coming month and run a Worcestershire Home Educators Internet support list.
If you are interested in home educating your children in Worcestershire we will be happy to hear from you.
