Family Learning is learning that takes place among family members and friends, including parents, grandparents and carers. It’s about discovering and exploring things together. (Please see our Learning at Home page)
Families teach us the most important things in life. Both children and grownups can help each other achieve more by doing activities together.
Family fun isn’t just for parents and children – dads, mums, stepparents, carers, aunts, uncles and grandparents can all join in. And the more family members you have joining in, the bigger the difference you can make to your child’s life.

Throughout the year Lime Tree offers ‘grownups’ the opportunity to find out the way their child/ren learn. This may be through events such as Family Learning days, early intervention for reading and phonics or more formal courses which are delivered in school and run by outside agencies. More recently the Forest School Team have invited grownups of Foundation Stage children to join them in the forest school around the camp fire and to experience how the children access learning in the forest school.
