Yesterday students were able to try a range of excellent activities. On offer was Archery, Basketball and Golf. Many students tried Archery for the first time, with great success!
Student’s in Holly and Alex’s class participated in a British food tasting session yesterday. Food and drink tasted included Marmite, Lemon Curd and Wotsits. Students had to use a variety of descriptive language to describe the different items. As always, Marmite was not a favourite!
Yesterday OBH turned into a Country Fair and students were able to participate in a range of fun games and activities. Students from the Creative Arts weekly activities helped to organise and run the very fun afternoon! Thank you everyone!
Students competed to win the contents of the Piñatas (made during the week by students in Creative Arts). They played Crochet, Yo Yo Diabolo and fished for Origami boats.
Students helped out with face painting and everyone agreed it was a very splendid afternoon!
Yesterday during the fitness elective, the students were very active and full of energy.
The day before Julius and Matteo had prepared a workout plan that they then used during the activity.
Well done guys!
After fitness, the students had the chance to play cricket under the British Sun 😉
This afternoon we’re having a country fair, stay tuned!
Students were blessed with a relatively quiet and warm day in Cambridge yesterday.
First, students took a walk past the main sights of Cambridge, including Kings College, St Johns and the Round Church.
We then took a punt down the River Cam, with students learning new facts and meeting some of the local resident ducks!
After this, we climbed St Mary’s Tower to get panoramic views of Cambridge and its sights.
After all of this sightseeing, students were able to shop in the Grand Arcade, with some excellent purchases and gifts for family and friends.
Jude, Girls House Parent and Social Activities Leader, has been leading some excellent activities.
Students have been preparing for a Summer Fair, to be held on Sunday. They have been making Piñatas, t-shirts, boxes, origami and decorations.
In the second session, students made mini quiches and boxes to go with.
Were there any to spare for the staff… of course not 🙂
After a morning of English lessons, the students went on their first excursion of the course to the local town Bury St Edmund. Alex, the Director of Studies here at OBH, grew up near to Bury and took us on a tour of the town, sharing with us his great local knowledge. During the tour we visited the Cathedral, the ruins in the abbey gardens, and the market. Afterwards, the students took part in the ‘charity shop challenge’ in preparation for their up-coming fashion show on Thursday evening, and ended the excursion by going bowling!
