Monday was a fun day with many activities. First up we had Benchball. The students really enjoyed practicing their team skills.
Next up we had Ultimate Frisbee.
For our evening activity we split the students up into their house teams, for our annual Egg Challenge! They all had to complete various tasks in order to win materials that they would later use to put together an egg parachute. We tested their egg parachutes by dropping them from a balcony. We had one or two cracked eggs but most made it through.
Sunday was the OBH Olympics as the students competed in events such as the long jump, a hurdles race, discus, gladiator and a traditionally English game of Tug of War. They then ended the afternoon with a relaxing time by the swimming pool and a BBQ.
Last night our students put their smart clothes on and placed some bets at the OBH casino. They enjoyed their trip to the races where they bet on their favourite staff horse and spent their winnings buying mystery items in a silent auction. Another great evening 🙂
On Friday we went to Cambridge. The students did a walking tour and a photo challenge and some went on a tour of St. John’s College. We then had lunch in the park before going shopping and finishing the day off punting down the river Cam.
On Thursday some of the students enjoyed partaking in a MasterChef style Sushi making competition. Others were busy designing and decorating shoulder bags whilst some practised their Golf swing. We also had a group of boys trying out Archery, which they really enjoyed.
The OBH students had a fun packed day bowling and playing arcade games in Bury St. Edmunds. They also completed a Trail Challenge throughout the town.
Monday evening – Alan, who is now enjoying his third week at OBH, celebrating his 14th birthday. We had a delicious chocolate cake made especially for him.
As a weekly activity, the students can do ‘ball sports’. Yesterday, they tried out Handball, which they really enjoyed.
