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 five sessions over one term, starting at 10.00 finishing at 11.30 (please note new times for winter term). Each participating child is £7, and £6 for siblings. Adults go free this winter.  We will take bookings for the whole five week term. 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**.
