Hedgehog Club

Tuesdays until 10th December 

The Hedgehog Club is a Forest School run by Mandy Warwick 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, 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

The next sessions will run from 3rd March - 31st March 2020.  The sessions start at 10am and finish at 12pm each Tuesday. The children will need to wear appropriate warm/cool, outdoor clothing with long sleeves in all seasons and suitable footwear as we will go out whatever the weather. There will be access to the toilets during the sessions.
