Summer 2024: Program 1 - Day 8

The day was off to a cracking start, with the sun shining down to mark the beginning of the second week of classes! Students rejoined their classmates to pick up where they left in our many classes, including Law, Engineering, Physics and Business. As the students got back into the swing of things, they began to await their daily notices to hear what the rest of the day had to offer. 


It will come as no surprise to hear that sports were back in high demand after last week’s successes, with one sport in particular at the top of the list. After a lunch break in the sun, seeing Cambridge in all its glory, the students gathered at the sports field for some volleyball! With brand new volleyballs, the students formed into teams, taking on their fellow college mates and even supervisors. The afternoon was a real hit for all involved once again!


For those wanting to chill out, we also put on an arts and crafts workshop. Students could design and decorate postcards to keep as mementos, or send back home to you! Taster courses part two also got back underway following on from Thursday, with an intermission of weekend excursions in between the Young Leaders, Architecture and Pre- Hospital courses.


After a weekend of trying new restaurants and places to eat, dinner was back to normal, with the students gathering back into their halls to dine with their fellow college mates. The evening that followed was another busy one, with the evening lecture and activities back in motion. With the interdisciplinary day later in the week, students took part in an incredibly interactive and engaging lecture on debating skills, which will come in handy on Wednesday! Volunteers took turns to talk about a random topic for 60 seconds without stuttering, pausing or using filler words, a skill which is easier said than done for most people! However, the students showed us how to do it, demonstrating their impressive speaking skills in order to persuade the audience, or tactfully describe their given subject.


Following on from an entertaining lecture, students had time to prepare for the world showcase, a fusion of world fair presentations on the students’ different countries, and a display of musical and artistic talent! Alternatively, students could attend a modern jazz dance workshop put on by one of our talented supervisors, perhaps our first showcase entry?


Come back tomorrow to hear all about the third day of week two, and as always, check out our Instagram and Tiktok for more daily updates! (@reachcambridge)
