A day in Cambridge and a quizzical evening

On Friday the students went to Cambridge. They went punting on the river Cam, completed a Cambridge fact hunt, and explored the market.

 

Social activities leader Lamide and Jigme were caught by Cambridge’s newest police officers – PC Constantin and PC Peter!

Bury St Edmunds

Yesterday the pupils enjoyed a day out in Bury St Edmunds. After completing a ‘logo hunting’ activity for their English classes, they enjoyed some free time in the historic town. After some shopping at the traditional local market, we had a picnic in the park, followed by an evening of bowling!
