London was the subject on all our students’ minds as they sat down to breakfast yesterday. With a trip to the West End planned for the afternoon, everyone was understandably eager to get their mornings underway!
The extra buzz of excitement from the upcoming trip translated well into lessons, lending the students’ enthusiasm as they tackled tricky topics. For those on the Broadening Horizons programme, the morning promised to be particularly intense – our Physics students got down to the nuts and bolts of how protons and electrons work while our Experimental Psychology students discussed research methods and the specifics of studying brain activity. It’s safe to say a very insightful morning was had by all – especially by LMH’s PD who dropped in for some of the psychology class!
Once lessons had finished, it was time to change clothes and grab a packed lunch before climbing aboard the coach to London. Everyone was very keen to see the city sites and jumped at the opportunity to do some shopping and exploring with their friends before their shows began in the evening. With Leicester Square and Covent Garden both right around the corner from where the coach dropped them off, there was plenty to keep our students occupied.
At 7pm the students met back at the theatre to choose between A Comedy About A Bank Robbery and Mousetrap. Both plays were a big hit and nobody left the theatre disappointed and the cohort spent the journey back to Oxford chattering about the two shows and trying to pick an overall favourite.
