Week 1 might be over at LMH, but their last few days were fun-filled with an excursion to Drayton Manor, Homework Club and a Movie Night. To read about their end-of-week party, click here.
Studying is an integral part of the ORA programmes, ensuring that every pupil has the potential to reach academic excellence. Homework Club is one way in which students are encouraged to work on their assignments, with help available from nearby staff.
Silence is upheld within the Club, enabling those who work best quietly to try their hardest. Working with music is allowed if it aids productivity and it is always great to see everyone respecting each other and their study during the sessions.
A thrilling excursion near the end of week 1 to Drayton Manor was an exciting occasion for all. The courageous students jumped at the chance to have a go on soaring rides, whilst some preferred to keep their feet on the ground and have a go on the fairground attractions.
Sugar rushes were abundant as pupils grabbed ice creams and sweet treats to stay cool in the warm weather. More energy meant more action for some, as they ventured on spinning coasters and exhilarating rides, whilst others tried to win big toy prizes at the stalls.
Despite some of the pupils not wishing to have a go on the tall and fast rides, the day was thoroughly enjoyed and the Park had activities that suited all of the students.
Popcorn, drinks and sweets lined the entrance to the LMH movie night last week. Students burst into the room, keen to get the best snacks and seats for the film. Some students dragged their prizes from Drayton into the room, acting as comfy cushions whilst silently showing off their talent.
The chance to relax with popcorn and a movie was a welcome break from the tiring lessons and excursions and gave everyone the opportunity to breathe.
There is loads more to come from LMH in week 2 so stay tuned.
