Academically, Monday was a busy day. Three full lessons filled the morning and early afternoon. Monday was also the submission date for many students to hand in their essays or give their presentations, both major parts of the academic components of their course. After a weekend of careful preparation, students felt ready and that their work was of a high standard.
The afternoon saw a chance for many who had not yet had the chance to go punting. It was a glorious day for the pastime, as students took to the water in unbroken sunshine. This also proved a relaxing way to unwind after a busy day of lessons for all of the cohort and the group sat back and soaked up the rays as they glided along.
They punted through the Backs from Magdalene Bridge, past St John’s College, Trinity College and many others. Everyone who wanted to had a go at punting themselves, some with more success than others (steering can be fiddly). Importantly, all returned to land in a dry condition, although some did express the desire to jump in as the weather was so hot!
After dinner, staff were on hand if students had any questions about their homework as there are still more deadlines to come over the next few days, so homework club was as busy as ever.
With the exciting prospect of a trip to London on Tuesday, many did take the chance to get ahead on work, while others enjoyed the superb weather outside.
