A Sunny Saturday in London

On Saturday we went to London and spent the day exploring the city in the sunshine.

In the morning we visited Greenwich, trying some interesting food from the market and admiring the beautiful view of the city.

After Greenwich we went on a boat down the Thames to Westminster, where we had a walking tour around the Houses of Parliament, St James’ Park and Buckingham Palace.

Then students shopped till they dropped around Oxford Street and Regent Street and we all had a nice sleep on the coach home!

Beginning of T2

Our second T course is well under way, and we’ve been busy making new friends and getting to know Cambridge!

 

On our first day we explored the city centre and had a very British BBQ. On Tuesday we rivalled Mary Berry in our baking of muffins, and then we bowled the night away.

 

This evening we had a very tense few hours watching England lose the World Cup Semi Final but we had fun doing it.

 

Bin Bag Fashion Show

We discovered some hidden talents at CAE this week! We held a bin bag fashion show, turning the Banana Club into a red carpet catwalk and our students into models and fashion designers.

Each group designed three outfits from just bin bags, newspaper and tape. They had to describe their look and inspiration whilst walking the red carpet!

Aren’t they a talented bunch?!

Afternoon Activities

Our teenage students have been taking part in some fun, and creative afternoon activities this week. They’ve been decorating canvas bags in the art room, cooking up a storm in the kitchen and impressing CAE staff with their rounders skills at the park!

In the CAE kitchen, students wowed us with some yummy chocolate muffins which I can promise taste as good as they look!

 

Here comes the sun…

On Saturday we went to London and had a lovely day on the river, in the parks and visiting the Queen! We spent time in Greenwich, Westminster, Trafalgar Square and The National Gallery.

Adri, one of our fabulous summer staff, even tried her hand at some art outside the National Gallery.

BBQ Time

On Monday afternoon students went into Cambridge for a tour of the town and had a fun photo challenging involving a potato…more on that later…

The weather was beautiful for our evening BBQ and we played games in the school gardens as the sun set.

What a lovely first day making friends and memories underneath the summer sun.
