We visited an English school

Standard

Today we visited a primary school, where we had the chance to speak to English with students out own age. We went into different classes and completed some tasks with our new friends. After lunch, we then watched Year 6 practice their play.

Then after dinner, we had a quiz in our houses. We had lots of different rounds, including questions about Moreton Hall, Great Britain, recognising famous people, country’s flags and guessing the music. Gryffindor came 1st and 2nd!

Sunday Funday! :)

Standard

What a beautiful day! We had fun day playing capoeira and doing t-shirt painting.

In the afternoon, we watched the France vs Croatia World Cup Final! What a match!

And to end the day, the girls had a relaxing night doing spa and the boys played on the PlayStation.

We will have three new students arriving tonight. We can’t wait to meet them!

Tomorrow we will go visit an English state school and see how the children learn in the UK.

New weekly activities

Standard

We woke up to another sunny day in Bury St Edmunds. After our busy lessons, we had the choice of tennis or clay painting for our daily activity.

Then we had to choose our new weekly activity: create a game show or making a piñata. We will know do this activity for three days, look out for lots of photos when they are finished…

We then had some bbq food outside on the grass for dinner, and then for the evening activity, we all played dodgeball, which was fantastic!

The perfect Friday: Cambridge and Disco

Standard

This morning, we slept in and had a late breakfast before jumping on the coach to Cambridge. We went on the punts on the River Cam, where we saw ducks, swans and lots of Cambridge’s famous colleges and bridges.

We then had a walking tour, including finding Stephen Hawking’s famous clock, and then we had lunch in one of Cambridge’s beautiful parks.

 

After lunch, we climbed to the top of St Mary’s Church tower, and we could see for miles! When we were at the top, we drew some pictures of what we could see, including King’s College Chapel. And then our favourite part: shopping time!

When we got back to Moreton Hall, we had fish and chips for dinner, and then we had a disco!

This morning we had classes preparing us for our afternoon visit to Bury St Edmunds. In Bury we did three things.

The first was a photo challenge. We had to take pictures of man-made and natural objects, that was our theme.

Next, we did the charity shop challenge. This is where, in our groups, we need to buy funny clothes for the teachers to wear in the fashion show but we can only spend £5!

In the evening, we had the option to watch the England vs Croatia match or to watch a film called ‘The Lorax’. Unfortunately, “it’s not coming home” or, in other words, England lost the match 😓
