Hi! This is the last blog entry from the Oakham summer camp! Today was an unforgettable day, we have gone to the very well-known city Cambridge!

There was also a bottle of water, a bag of crisps, some fruit and a biscuit. Once in Cambridge, we have, first of all, did a walking tour around the city. The activity leaders have shown us the Round Church as well as the Trinity College and the Market…

Good morning! How are you? We are really sad because we have only one week left. Our day has been really relaxing. What a lazy Sunday! We have woken up a little bit later than usual and had breakfast. This morning’s activity has been football, but some of us were too tired from yesterday’s trip and decided to stay at the common room to rest. We have watched a musical film, Pitch Perfect 2, have you ever watched it? When the movie has ended we have had lunch. The main course was spaghetti with meatballs and we have had ice-cream…
