Today had a bit of rain. We went to Sawston again to have lessons. Science was still the best lesson throughout the day. We learned about magnets. And the reaction to the iron sprays was impressive circles and the lines showed clearly where the electricity goes. It's a great experiment.
I also liked the history lesson as we could use computers to search for information about an invention. And I was in charge of Sir Isaac Newton; it was so good to know more about someone who discovered gravity in Cambridge.
In the English lesson, we learned anything about interview skills. And we also got to know what is poetry.
The lunch today was brilliant! Although it was just beef sauce pasta, it was so delicious! We played football at the early afternoon. We were so lucky to play with some senior group members, and we tied at 4-4. It was an exciting match.
We went to see the poet Annaliese Emanns Dean. She shared some of her ideas and poems and thoughts in a poetic way. It was very extraordinary but funny. I liked the ladybug poem most as it was so funny. We could also buy her poem collection for 15% off and she gave me her autograph and bookmark. I was so lucky to have such a famous poet to sign in my book!
And we had preparation on our presentation. We decided to change the lyrics from the pop song "Good Time". And it was really successful.
At last we had a short charity talk and a dinner. I used £5 to buy 5 raffle tickets. Although I didn't win any prizes, I was still very happy about that event!
It was such a relaxing but fun day. I think I would love the wind as we are going to the Swaftham wind turbine tomorrow. I am sure it will be massive and stunning and I think you are going to have lots to read!
Today, I met our English panel head/my English teacher/the website founder - Dr. Lee, at Churchill College!
Well, it all started normally today: with (boring) breakfast and lovely lessons. Then we played another round of rounders today (my legs are getting sore from that much sports...) and enjoyed a wonderful talk from the author Anneliese Emmans Dean (she is actually a poet ). She was very good at performing poems and humorously introducing us to different kinds of insects. After that Dr. Lee came into the picture...
I first saw Dr. Lee when I was preparing for the final presentation (it is a secret...). At that time, we had already prepared for 1.5 hour, so I felt tired and I looked out the window. That was when I saw a little figure coming from the horizon; I focused again: it was him! It was Dr. Lee!
We then had dinner at the grassland together and participated in a lucky draw (all the money will go to a charity group: we needed to pay £1 for one raffle ticket). The results haven't been announced but I am really excited! I will tell you about my results tomorrow. Bye for now!
