Join an intimate group of Charlotte Mason educators in the heart of Wordsworth world. Your day in picturesque Grasmere will begin with an immersive experience at the Grasmere Church of England Primary School where you will have the opportunity to explore how nature study and living books are incorporated into human-scale life of the village school. Experience outdoor learning with students at the village beck and science learning in the classroom (3- to 7-year-olds). Examine literary learning through living books and poetry with 7- to 11-year-olds. Meet with educators while together you observe the integration of outdoor playtime into the curriculum. Lunch will be shared at St. Oswald’s Church (founded in 642 AD) where you will have opportunity to visit William Wordsworth’s grave and the Grasmere Gingerbread Shop. The afternoon will be marked by a tour of Dove Cottage and time at the Wordsworth Museum where experts will lead us through William Wordsworth’s influence on Charlotte Mason. The day will also include nature journalling with John Muir Laws in the beautiful surrounding countryside which inspired many of Wordsworth's poems.
