Today I had the best lesson ever! The science lesson told us how to extract DNA from strawberries and kiwi fruits. Although there were some messy and yucky moments during the extraction, the result was really great. I didn't know that DNA is actually things that look like fluffy clouds. This is probably my first DNA experiment I have experienced in my life and I was feeling so fantastic that I had brought the experiment to a huge success. The teacher even gave me a team point for my hard-workingness!
The English lesson is also enjoyable. We did a radio broadcast about what we saw these days. And we're on time at one minute sharp finishing 3 attractions, our group was so lucky!
The history lesson was also nice. It talked about a poem and brought us to the story of Guy Fawkes. We were interested in listening to the teacher saying what Guy experienced.
In the afternoon, we did some activities with our mentor. Then, we walked in our smart clothes to the St. Gilles churches to enjoy my first choral evensong. Although it was a bit boring, I was totally stunned by the grand and stunning design of the church. I liked the windows most. Except that they were very colourful, the pictures on the windows were also very nicely decorated. We were shocked by the amazing voice of the mentors. Overall it was quite relaxing.
We also took a group photo, but it took long to arrange the places to stand. But anyway, I was extremely happy that we played a football game and we won 7-0. And one goal was scored by myself. And the match also helped me to build up friendship with others.
It had been a long day. But I can't wait for the poet's talk tomorrow as poetry is always my favourite. Will update more tomorrow about poetry!
So, here is what happened in our first non-outing day at Churchill College (Cambridge):
Today, after we had breakfast (yes, cereal AGAIN!) and the three lessons - English, History, Science, I still like this the most: we found the DNA of kiwi today. And for History, we prepared for our final presentation (I won't tell you now. it is a secret...)
Then, we went to the St. Giles Church and enjoyed a wonderful choral evensong ,sung by the mentors from Cambridge University. The songs were really lovely!
When the sun started setting down after we had dinner (we had dinner after the evensong, we played rounders again (for more information, pls read the passage a few days ago...). It was still a really good game. This time, we finally won the competition. I was very happy.
This is what happened today, talk to you again tomorrow. Bye!
