Yesterday made for a fantastic start to the week at Catz as students unwound from Sunday’s electric Great Debate and got back into the swing of lessons. It was incredible to see the progress that had been made after Week One, and the level of learning was really noteworthy.
The day commenced with Psychology, in which the students gave presentations on some of the world’s most renowned psychologists. A great way to familiarise everyone with the history of the subject, the exercise also proved remarkably valuable for the students to learn practical new information. Everyone rose to the challenge of giving a presentation really well, commanding the platform and engaging their peers.
Meanwhile, the Genetics class were exploring the nature of natural selection, using beans as a practical explainer. This gave real substance to a difficult and abstract concept, and the students seemed to really benefit from this unique approach. It was also noted that the students asked some great questions during the lesson.
The warm weather was not to be missed however, so the students headed outdoors and made the most of the sunshine later on. The beautiful St Catherine’s campus made the perfect location for games on the lawn, socialising with friends or simply relaxing in the sun.
Today that weather looks to be holding as the curriculum rolls on. The week is now fully in swing, and there is still a lot to look forward to. Lead by a team of friendly Deans and leading academics, there is so much still to come!
