New pre-school Woodland Club at Cogges

May 2018
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 weekly sessions in the winter term, starting at 10.00am and finishing 11.30pm. The cost for each participating child is £7, and £6 for the second child. Please note, the Cogges site will be closed to the public from 4th November, reopening for the new season in March 2019, op. We will take bookings for the whole five week term.
The five-week term will start 6th November 2018. If you're interesting in joining us, please email with any questions or book your place HERE
