Monday - Team Building & Problem Solving

Hi everyone,

We’ve had a fantastic first few hours at Woodlands! 🙌 We started by splitting off into groups and doing some team building games and getting to know the grounds. It’s been very action-packed so far, we’ve managed to settle in and get our beds made and unpacked 🛌

After dinner (chicken goujons), we will be going on a walk before bed 🚶🏼  Tomorrow each group will be doing a different activity- it could be caving, canoeing or the high ropes. 

More updates to follow tomorrow 😁

Today has been an amazing day for all four groups. There have been so many fears conquered and all have worked incredibly well as a team. As adults we have been very impressed by the resilience and perseverance from our Year 6s.

A very similar day to yesterday all round - each group did an activity that a previous group had already done - again, sadly the group with caving won't have many photos as phones often don't come out in the caves!
