Osmington Bay Trip - 2020
On the weekend of 13th March 2020, 39 adventurers from Downside Primary braved the cold wind and visited the stunning coast line of Weymouth, in Dorset for the annual trip to Osmington Bay.
After a long drive through some beautiful scenery we arrived at PGL Osmington Bay venue where we quickly started to explore the beach area including throwing stones into the sea!
Next a quick tour of the site before we settled into the rooms and prepared ourselves for the first activity- AMBUSH!!! One team hides and other team has a limited amount of time to find them… all made more interesting in the dark!
After a good nights sleep, we headed off for a range of exhilarating activities including Zip wire, fencing, abseiling, rock climbing, rifle shooting and many more…
During the weekend the children overcame their fears and we were proud of all the children for having attempting the activities.
Huge thank you to all the children and staff who attended and can`t wait for next year!

Design a Cake Competition 2017-2018

This year, the theme for the Design a Cake Competition was: Living in Britain.

There were many excellent entries from across the school – well done to everyone who took part.

 The children in the school council had the difficult job of choosing the best entries from each year group and giving these designs to the kitchen. Do look at all the designs; they are amazing!

The kitchen staff then chose the final two cakes – one from years 4 – 6 and one from years 1 – 3.

The winning designs were then made into cakes and on Monday 17th July 2018,  the two winning designs and the corresponding cakes were finally revealed. I am sure you will agree that both the designs and the cakes are stunning.

Many congratulations go to all the runners up and, most especially, to the two worthy winners.
