Children arrived safely in Dorset. Good Journey had by all. It's windy but dry.

Children settled into their rooms well and toured the PGL grounds with their leader. After a delicious roast dinner everyone had some rest time before Wacky Races. It is chilly but dry and we are looking forward to tomorrow's activities,

Everyone had a great night sleep and were up bright and early to start our first full day activities. Half the group is heading to Weymouth harbour for dragon boat racing while the other half will be experiencing the giant swing and sensory trail. The groups will swap after lunch.




Due to the high winds, the morning group were unable to participate in dragon boat racing and instead took part in fencing and abseiling. Everyone had a great time. The afternoon group enjoyed their time on the water immensely and learnt some valuable rowing skills. The giant swing was a huge hit with everyone in year 6, including some of the staff! The sensory trail proved  to be muddy but fun. We are enjoying dinner before our evening activity.

everyone slept well after the excitement of the evening entertainment- many children had to be woken up by the staff! It is a brighter day as the mist is clearing and we are looking forward to a full day of activities including mountain biking, zip wire, Jacob’s ladder, climbing and orienteering.





We had a very busy day. We’ve climbed, zipped, biked, tunnelled and worked as a team. The sun was shining all day although it’s been chilly. Good meals were enjoyed and the children are excited to shop for souvenirs and sweets before partying at the disco. We’re looking forward to our last activities before beginning our journey home tomorrow.

The disco was great fun and everyone danced their socks off! It was hard work to wake the children up this morning but everyone is awake, packed and eating breakfast before our final morning activities. It is drizzling. We will be leaving after lunch and will keep you informed of our expected arrival time.
