Cambridge Museums & Culture – Year 8 Residential Trip

Last week there was much excitement as the Year 8s headed to Cambridge for their first residential trip.

The three day stay included a busy schedule of activities and fun which included a Guided Tour of Cambridge Highlights Walking Tour, visits to the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences, the Whipple Museum of the History of Science, the University Museum Of Zoology, the Cambridge Cookery School, Cambridge Market, King’s College Chapel and of course, punting on the River Cam!

Students Minna W and Sarah L shared their highlights below:

Minna W, Year 8

From Monday 20th June to Wednesday 22nd June, Year 8 travelled to Cambridge in order to learn about history and science, and to also relax and have a fun break away with friends!

Throughout this trip, we have seen incredible architecture, learnt how to cook delicious dishes and have travelled through the amazing colleges, once by boat. When we got off the coach, the first thing we did was a walking tour that took us through the colleges and chapels and into the market square, where we all enjoyed looking around. After this, we broke off into different groups in order to do different activities. These included looking around many interesting museums of science and history, doing a cookery course, exploring the chapel and grounds of King’s College, going bowling and doing punting on the river.

I really enjoyed doing cookery, where we made bread and soup, as it was a great opportunity to develop different skills, and also going bowling, as for me it was the most fun part of the trip, because it was a great opportunity to hang out with your friends! Visiting the chapel was also an amazing experience, as it was so beautiful. After exploring inside, we went out into the grounds, which was a field of daisies, with a gentle river running through. My favourite part though, was the punting. I had been looking forward to this even before arriving, and it definitely lived up to my expectations! We received a full historical account of the colleges as we rode past them on our boats, and saw so many beautiful bridges and buildings from where we were sat on the river! Also it was extremely hot and sunny, which made the whole experience even more enjoyable.

Overall, it was a truly incredible experience and I can’t wait to go again!

Sarah L, Year 8

As part of the Year 8 trip to Cambridge we went to many museums and also Kings College Chapel which was very beautiful and lots of other fun things. On the first day we went on a walking tour of Cambridge so we got to know a little bit about the different colleges and the history of the colleges, which was very interesting.

After that we went to two different museums which were very informative. After this we got some time to explore Cambridge in small groups. We went to the market place which had a big variety of things to buy and see, so this is where we spent most of our free time.

On the second day we did a cookery class where we made bread and soup which we then had for lunch, this was my favourite thing that we did in Cambridge. After this we went to the beautiful King’s College Chapel and when we were there we went through a large flower meadow and went down to the river. We also went bowling that night which was very fun and everyone had a great time. On our last day there we went to a few more museums. Overall I had an amazing time and the great weather made it even more enjoyable.

It was truly an amazing experience and I can’t wait to go back!
