Osmignton Adeventure 2016… Update 4

Day 4 of the Osmington Adventure, with children raring to go once again after another restful sleep. The Weymouth coast has been looking absolutely stunning this week with some amazing views out across the bay!

Many groups took on the challenge of raft building yesterday and here is just a small selection of the images from the event (children will get a chance to create a photo-montage from the school camera stocks in the coming weeks of their Osmington moments) and as you can see from these images, it was a fun filled day enjoyed by all! As the challenge progressed, children were encouraged to take part in a round of “Heads, shoulders, knees and jump” – which as you’d imagine, left some pupils completely delighted with a freshening dunk into the Weymouth waters!

As well as this, many groups also took part in the hair raising “Trapeze” activity, involving a leap of faith from the top of a very tall wooden pole – in desperate reach of the gold-standard hanging buoy. Once again, children excelled themselves, conquering fears and pushing themselves to achieve. A very proud moment for many as they reached the summit!

The evening entertainment has also consisted of “Splash”, involving a random assortment of hilarity inducing activities and races, which were equally enjoyed by children and adults alike, as Anne Dale students practiced team work, collaboration and worked together with new-found friends…

Tomorrow will bring a new range of challenges I am sure, so keep an eye out for the updates… Bye for now, from all at Osmington Bay!
