After some well earned lunchtime recess, the supervisors lead two great activities to choose from in the afternoon. Shamefully, not one student had heard of the magnificent game of Rounders, and so they were all about to learn in the latest episode of the Team Ice-Fire battle (a friendly competition between the student body)! Rounders was a surprise hit in Program 1 too, so it’s great to see the tradition being carried into this program. In a game that’s totally accessible and suitably competitive, the group surprised all of the supervisors with impressive batting ability and unwavering commitment to winning. Red-hot batting was met by ice-cool catches to play out a well-spirited draw. Points for both teams! Those that didn’t want to take on the Cambridgeshire heat displayed their artistic instincts in a ‘T-shirt decorating and Glamyard’ session. Needless to say Reach’s style has been taken to a new level!View this post on Instagram
A little glimpse of classes so far! From extracting DNA to building towers and everything in between – all in the beautiful grounds of #CambridgeColleges 😍 . . . . #reachcambridge2019 #reachcambridge #cambridgeuniversity #universityofcambridge #cambridgecollege #cambridgeuk #visitcambridge #cambridgesummerschool #summerschool #summercamp #summerprogram2019 #lessonsoutside #beautifulsunshine #learninginthesunshine
Students enjoyed games such as Switch Nintendo and our pseudo-‘Casino Night’ in the evening slot. Our resident supervisor croupier Joe saw some seasoned poker players take on the force of beginner’s luck in many rounds of progressively tactical Texas Holdem Poker. Next-door, daytime Senior Program Coordinator and night-time Switch expert Luke hosted the ever-popular Mario Kart Championships. Experience and skill reaped the rewards in this contest, but the newcomers have insisted on a rematch later in the program! We eagerly await round 2.
It is so heartwarming to see the brilliantly diverse range of cultures come together and form such strong connections so quickly.
