Home Education Day - Bugs and Buds

28 June 2024
10am - 2:30pm

Specifically designed for home educated students, join our workshops and explore the garden's natural habitat.

Overview of the DayOur focus for the day is 'Bugs and Buds'. Children can enjoy a fun, science-based adventure as they explore our grounds and find out more about the world of insects and plants who live here.

Facilitator-led sessions encourage children to look for different minibeasts, learn how to use keys to identify invertebrate, investigate the different herbs that are grown at Sulgrave Manor, comparing their modern and historical uses.

SessionsSessions are split into two suggested age groups:

Budding Explorers (under 7's) and Flourishing Explorers (over 7’s).

We will accommodate all ages in each group. As a guide, Budding Explorers is suited to children at an under 7s development stage, and Flourishing Explorers for children at an over 7s developmental stage. Secondary students are also welcome.

Sessions will run from 11am–12pm and repeat in the afternoon from 1pm – 2pm.

Each child must be accompanied by an adult. Please select an age group when booking.
