The beginning of Session 6 has been full of fascinating lessons and, importantly, fun activities to ensure a rounded cultural experience.
Arts and Crafts – University
For ORA students at University, the chance to have a relaxing evening with glitter, paint, pens and pencils was the perfect way to spend their free time.
Some opted for bright and glittery creations, with glistening dolphins and flowers being brought to life by dazzling glitter. Others opted for less blazing mediums, with painted seascapes, expressions and scenes of nature. An ambitious few grabbed tracing paper and plates and drew people and designed patterned masterpieces.
The final results were exceptional and showed a real artistic and imaginative diversity among the students.
Oxford Tour – Yarnton Manor
It was time for ORA pupils at Yarnton to explore their new surroundings as they ventured out to the stunning centre of Oxford.
Admiring mesmerising feats of architecture and the world-famous dreaming spires, ORA pupils strolled down cobbled streets and wandered beside age-old structures. From seeing the renowned Radcliffe Camera and Bodleian Library to the breathtaking Sheldonian Theatre and the Bridge of Sighs, students had a full experience of the beautiful city.
After pupils had taken their fill of photos – a difficult feat given the abundance of gorgeous photographic subjects – they returned to the Manor for an evening of studying and activities.
