On Tuesday 22nd May, 27 Year 8 students spent a day at the University of York.
They spent the morning working in teams with students from CCHS to put together a presentation which they had to deliver in front of everyone. Quite a daunting task, but all students did really well.
They then had a campus tour and even went into a Mock Courtroom! After lunch, the students enjoyed a ‘taster lecture’ and completed a mini quiz all about the Vikings, and their influence on the city of York.
Finally, they took part in ‘The Chase’ where they again worked in teams and had to beat the Chaser (University Ambassadors!) home by answering questions about the University. Mrs Powney & Mrs Chamberlain are certain that they made it home before any students, but the students weren’t convinced! We are now looking forward to a return visit to the University in Year 9.
