The eighth day proves to be a lucky and yummy day for our boys!
Today, of course, still remains as a brilliant day. Or might I say, a rather yummy one.
We've had our lessons once more today, and I think the most exciting lesson for today was History. We played a game called "Scavender Hunt". We had to obviously HUNT for different cards about different body parts or special features of human bodies. Then we take a picture of the cards you find and rush back, to complete a worksheet which without the pictures you cannot complete. The questions were asked into deep detail and you must understand the text in the cards fully. We've had great fun while learning such difficult knowledge.
Then the next special thing was the charity talk, along with the dinner. The talk was about a particular charity group which helps the people in Africa. We bought raffle tickets to show our help to the poor people and ate our delicious hog roast charity dinner. Although it was a bit cold, it was excellent and the best meal in all these days in Cambridge. Then using the raffle tickets, we had a small lottery for a few prizes. It was all fun to be participating.
So what a yummy day, and I can't wait to go to London tomorrow!
Today was another ordinary day in our programme. Yet, there was an experience I had seldom tried before.
Everything went as normal in the morning as we attained our lessons and had lunch. But as our group discussion and activities ended, there came one thing most of us were looking forward to: the charity talk and special dinner!
During the talk made by a volunteer who helped with the poverty and hunger issues in Ethiopia, I learnt more about how desperate the children in those areas needed help and with just little donations we can help the people who are in need with high efficiency. Did you know that 100 pounds could send one child to receive good education for one whole year? I didn't. Even more surprisingly, just 5 pounds could feed almost 150 people for one whole week!
Then, we had our befuddling meal of charity hog roast. The food was extremely delicious and we instantly felt like having dinner at home.
After presents were given out for lucky-drawn raffle tickets which we bought earlier then, there was one last activity awaiting us. It was another session of improvised drama, but we were given a genre, a location and a prop to follow on. It was a challenging job, but we performed very well and had a great time cooperating.
So, another wonderful day comes to a close. I really am looking forward to the activities tomorrow!
The coach was late today, hence there were only 40 minutes left for the art lesson. That was sad, wasn't it? We had to make crazy bugs today in the art lesson!
The second lesson was English. We were asked to design a poster for the Cambridge Programmes. For the content of the poster, we had to draw some pictures and provide information about the Cambridge programmes.
During the history lesson, we continued to study about Charles Darwin. We studied about Charles Darwin's diary and Charles Darwin's letter 158. We had to imagine that ourselves were Darwin and write a letter to our best friend describing a day in the sea.
Lastly, we all did sports. Of course, I played soccer because I am a footballer and love playing football so much. However, I was a little bit upset because my soccer teammates didn't even win a game! Sad! Hopefully we could make it next time! (Oops, I just checked the schedule and we are not going to have sports activities anymore. What a pity!)
Afterwards, we had a dinner. We had roast hog and ice lolly. The roast hog was so delicious that most of us wanted to refill it! It's great that we had ice lolly as dessert. What a yummy dinner!
