Lessons got off to a brilliant start this morning at St Edmund’s, and it was particularly great to see our students on the Veterinary Science Programme start to exercise some of their practical skills.
Their dedicated teacher Elsa, had them approach anatomy from an interesting direction as they were all encouraged to make plasticine models of an animal heart before labelling it. Then Elsa got them to think more deeply about the necessary functions of the heart in an interactive task using post-it notes. Everyone seemed really engaged throughout the class, and it was brilliant to note their commitment to the programme.
Following lessons there was the opportunity to take part in a Masterclass which was a CSI crash-course. All of the students immersed themselves in the workshop, teaming up to investigate the crime.
After the intense workshop, the students were then given a talk by adventure journalist, Ash Bhardwaj, which proved a fascinating finish for the afternoon. This was followed by a tasty meal in the sunshine.
Towards the end of the evening, the whole cohort enjoyed lounging in the sun and playing some games with the counsellors on the lawn including splat and Jenga.
