Woodland Club

The Cogges Woodland Club is a Forest School where pre-school children learn by playing and exploring their natural environment. This approach helps children become more independent and develops their social and physical skills. The activities are led by what the children are interested in and are not directed by the adults.
The sessions will be run by a trained Forest School leader, Mandy Warwick, working alongside the children’s carers.
What will we do?
The activities will take place in the wooded area of Cogges. During a session, the children will be able to:
  • Climb trees
  • Play in the mud
  • Build dens
  • Listen to stories around the fire, tell their own stories
  • Search for bugs, and other minibeasts
  • Make things from sticks
  • Cook simple snacks on the fire
  • ...and go wherever their imagination takes them……
The sessions
There will be two remaining sessions over this winter term, starting at 10.00 finishing at 11.30 (please note new times for winter term) from Tuesday 27th November. Each participating child is £7, and £6 for siblings. Adults go free this winter.  We will take bookings for the four weeks in advance. The Cogges site is closed to the public from 4th November and reopening for the new season March 2019. **Winter Warmer offer - free hot drink in the Cogges Kitchen cafe on arrival, before the session starts**.
