Residential: Day 4 - Final night!
Well, we are all a little tired but have experienced so much this week. Again, today we took part in more amazing activities to help us challenge ourselves and support each other. The food here at Woodlands has been excellent and we are enjoying a final evening of visiting the gift shop and showing how responsible we are by packing our suitcases and tidying our dorm rooms.
Residential: Day 3
Another active day has been had by all! From mountain climbing to high ropes, caving to canoeing, all groups have shown resilience and team spirit.
Residential: Day 2
What an adventurous day! It is safe to say that everyone here at Woodlands has had an amazing day, filled with new challenges and have faced some fears together as a supportive team.
Groups 1 and 4 descended into the dark depths of the caves, clambering and scrambling through narrow passageways and watery obstacles. Groups 2 and 3 spent their day on the canal, canoeing a fair distance and working together to row successfully. Group 5 challenged themselves on the high ropes course through the trees, and zip-wired their way to a day well done!
We have all been so impressed with the children, watching them become supportive of one another and act more responsibly around the house, helping to serve food, tidy up and look after themselves in a mature way.
Residential: Day 1
Hello from Woodlands! We have arrived safely and everyone is in great spirits!
After a long and windy journey, we have settled into the beautiful house, and we have already achieved so much! We found out our dorm and activity groups, then everyone took part in 'Outdoor business', working as a team to successfully complete a series of challenges. We have used communication skills and took turns to lead our teams to victory.
We then had a delicious dinner of chicken goujons, chips and beans, followed by apple crumble, before going on a nighttime walk up a steep mountain. At the top, we turned off our torch lights and learned about the stars and constellations - we even saw the planet Jupiter!
Finally we returned to the centre, ready for a good nights sleep so we have lots of energy for the activities tomorrow.
This year we are asking families to make a small contribution towards our 6 bespoke hampers which will be raffled off at our Christmas Fayre on Friday 26th November.
