After a fairly good journey, we arrived safely at Woodlands. We settled ourselves into our rooms, made our beds,(with varying degrees of success) and then had a delicious lunch of baguette pizza and flapjack. We then were allocated our wet weather gear and walking boots before finding out about our responsibilities during the week. We then made our way outside, wrapped up nice and warm, to tackle some problem solving activities in our activities groups. 

At 5.30pm we headed into the dining room for a dinner of fish and chips followed by jelly and fruit. This evening we have been on a night walk to the top of a hill to star gaze. It was a beautiful clear evening, so we saw many constellations and enjoyed the silence whilst lying on the grass looking up at the stars. 

We have had hot chocolate in our PJ's before bedtime and now we are all tucked up in bed!! We are looking forward to an exciting day tomorrow;some of us are climbing and doing the high ropes and zip wire whilst others canoe on the canal.

Team Buiding Activities.
