Fun and Learning at the Coast
On Monday 25 September Year 8 pupils set off to the south coast to enjoy some outdoor activities and learning.
At Osmington Bay PGL the girls and boys participated in a range of different team builiding and outdoor activities including: aeroball (Mrs Bennett's favourite), zip lining (Miss Clifford got to have a go . . . twice!), raft building and sailing their creations off the coast of Chesil Beach at the National Sailing Academy, plus ball sports and games, Jacob's Ladder and a giant swing. Their last evening at PGL finished with a disco where the pupils (and some staff!) showed off their moves.
After breakfast on Wednesday morning, the group visited Lulworth Cove and Stair Hole and studied the area to complete their Geography work books, finding out more about the coastline formation, how tourists use the area, what problems tourists create and how these problems can be solved. Once finished, the pupils headed over the hill to Durdle Door to sketch the famous landscape and discovering how it was created and what will happen to it in the future.
