Waking up once again to warm sunlight coming through the windows really put our St Peter’s cohort in the mood to learn yesterday. They really took to the morning’s lessons, asking as many questions as possible and working hard to grasp as many new concepts as possible before the end of the morning.
There was a break for the students to grab some lunch and take some time to relax in the sun before their afternoon of masterclasses began.
From Fan-Powered Cars to Construction, there was something to catch everyone’s attention at St Peters. Our students had a great afternoon of stretching their teamwork and creative skills as they worked in groups to make the fastest cars or the tallest tower of wooden rods. It was great to see them all working so hard and so well with each other even outside of lessons!
The evening offered the chance to get creative with lanyard decorating. As the students have to keep their lanyards close by for the whole session, the workshop was full of people wanting to make theirs a bit more personal. Afterwards, the students raced out to the park to play some football and rounders in what was left of the evening.
Those marine enthusiasts amongst the cohort put their feet up and enjoyed a screening of Blue Planet. It was a great chance to kick back and relax a bit after a busy day but still learn something.
Meanwhile the most studious of the cohort opted to attend homework club. As they’ve only had two days of lessons, it was both surprising and fantastic to see the students already this involved in their work!
Across the board, the students at St Peter’s have been fantastically engaged so far and deserve a big well done. We have high hopes that the students will continue this level of commitment for the rest of the session.
