After an exciting Saturday spent exploring the Southbank and Greenwich areas, Reach students were thrilled to learn that they were going to have yet another chance to explore more of London this Sunday!
The first part of our Reachers day was spent in one of two museums. Our art-loving students opted for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London’s art and design museum, home to an incredible variety of exhibitions, with collections ranging from fashion and textiles to sculpture and painting. Meanwhile, our young science enthusiasts headed to the Science Museum, where they got to enjoy many fun and interactive exhibitions, including some focusing on the development of flight and aircrafts, and the advance of medicine throughout the years.
After a morning of intense learning in both museums, we then headed towards the most famous department store in London for an intense (window) shopping session! At Harrods, our students were able to find almost anything they could think of; from clothes, beauty products, books, toys and art supplies, to restaurants as well as a cafe and tea rooms. Whether they indulged or simply browsed, it was a great chance to see a commercial institution so iconic in London's history.
Following such a busy day out, we were all ready to climb back into our buses (dragging our heavy shopping bags behind us) and head back into Cambridge for a relaxing end of the day. The evening was then spent in Trinity Hall College, as our students finished preparing their presentations for the upcoming World Fair, where they’ll be able to present and their countries and cultures to everybody else. The TH Music Room later transformed into a cinema theatre, where students were able to come to watch and sing along to the film Mamma Mia!
Now it's 'here we go again' for another exciting week of classes, fuelled by the fun of the weekend.
