Osmington Adventure 2016… Update 5

As the day closes on another fantastic 24 hours at Osmington Bay, children are settling down for their final sleep away from home amidst the rolling hills and adventurous activities of their PGL home for the last week…

Today, fuelled by a breakfast of sausages, hash browns, eggs and ketchup, children tackled yet more amazing activities, from the giant swing to survivor training and archery… During survivor, pupils tried to make fire, while also daubing themselves generously in mud! Beware their Bear Grylls style skills when they return!

Other groups tacked the indoor bouldering wall with rock climbing prowess, making sure that their friends helped keep them safe by bileting from the floor nearby. The zip wire was also in popular demand, as children (and Miss Skinner!) whizzed along at considerable speed, enjoying the freedom of the sun in their faces as they sped along the top of the Weymouth cliffs.

Once again, another day of tremendous fun and adventure has passed as children approach their last day at Osmington, ready to return to their families with amazing tales of all that they have accomplished this week….. Keep your eyes peeled for a final update!

Bye for now, from all at Osmington Bay!
