Thorpe Woodlands

31.10.16 Thorpe Woodlands Blog

Today we arrived at a foggy Thorpe Woodlands. We were all really excited and keen to start.

On arrival we had a talk from Adam and then were made to make our own beds! Some found this a struggle! After this we played some games and had a tour of the site.

We had lunch and then split into our groups for the week. All of us did team building games and we realised some of our strengths and weaknesses. One activity was getting a group from one side to the other using a swing rope.  We all returned back together and experienced orienteering on the site then a clues challenge in the forest. My group saw a frog and we saw a deer on the way back!

Free time was 4.30-5.30 and dinner was served. We had the best brownies ever!

We are currently writing our diaries to help us reflect on the day before we start evening activities.

It has been a great start to our trip and we have so much more to look forward to.
