Osmington Bay Residential Trip

This week our Year 6 children set off to Osmington Bay in Dorset for their 3 days and 2 nights of fun, challenges and activities accompanied by Mr Waltham, Mr Thorpe and Mrs Harding.


The group had a very early start, leaving school at 7am for the long journey to Osmington Bay.  The traffic was kind and they arrived in good time just after mid day to be greeted with the breathtaking views of the stunning Dorset coastline.

After 'checking in' the activities commenced with raft building and a good ole' fashioned sing song roung the camp fire! The children all ate well and fell into bed worn out from the first exciting day!


After a good night's sleep and a hearty breakfast inside them, they all set off for an early morning walk along the beach.  It wasn't quite white sand's and clear blue skies, but more of a perfect place for some fossil hunting.

The children split into three groups for the remainder of the day's activities and enjoyed  giant swings, tunnelling, zip wires, and archery.  After another fabulous dinner, the children (and staff) put on their glad rags and dancing shoes at the disco.


As the last day arrived all of the children were keen to get the most out of such a wonderful experience finishing off the trip with air ball and abseiling.  Mr Waltham was immensely proud of all the children who really pushed themselves to have a go at the all of the activities, especially as it meant stepping out of their comfort zone for quite a few.

After lunch the children boarded the coach for the journey home (and a well deserved snooze)!

As always, the children all behaved impeccabley and really were the perfect ambassadors for Heybridge Primary School!
