Conquering abseiling, archery, the zip wire, giant swing and a Jacob’s Ladder was all part of the fun for Year 6 boys and girls when they visited PGL Osmington Bay, in Dorset.
The geography and science field studies trip took place over four days, and as well as spending time on the outdoor equipment at the PGL Centre, the group spent time undertaking river studies, identifying species in rock pools and visiting Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door; investigating the geology of the area and the impact of tourism. During their river studies day, the intrepid adventurers waded around in different parts of the River Wey and learnt how to collect data such as flow rates and sediment size using all sorts of different equipment.
Poonam Bharj, Junior Boys teaching assistant, said:
“All the pupils pushed through their comfort zones and challenged themselves to have go on each activity. Their fantastic collaboration, resilience and determination (and impeccable behaviour) didn't go unnoticed by the staff and PGL instructors!”
When asked what they enjoyed most about the trip, pupils replied “I loved every single thing”, “I liked making new friends”, and “the giant swing was the best, it was really fast!”
The week ended with all the pupils putting together a wonderfully creative display to show what they had learned during the week which all parents were invited to enjoy.
