Y5 & Y6 Historic Cambridge Buildings Visit
With thanks to Luther Phillips from the University of Cambridge Judge Business School who not only gave some of our Year 5 and Year 6 pupils a tour of the former Grade II listed Addenbrooke’s hospital building (established in 1766) last Spring term but also imparted some invaluable advice and wisdom:
Always be kind and considerate to others regardless of each other’s status.
Always aspire and persevere to solve local and global issues.
Never be afraid to ask for help.
It was remarked upon that our Vine pupils took notes throughout the tour and were praised for being wonderful and attentive. They learnt about the unique design of the current School which aims to stimulate thought, promotes collaboration and that former alumni include Ebon Upton, Founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation. One of our Y5 pupils was pleased to share that Mr Upton was her dad’s current boss.
The afternoon provided the group of Vine pupils with a visit to King’s College Chapel with its magnificent fan vaulting, stained glass windows, Tudor Choir Stalls and the famous painting 'Adoration of the Magi' by Rubens. All members of our group enthusiastically scoured the Chapel from all sides to complete the Chapel Quiz. Well done to our Y6 girls who scored the highest marks – no doubt helped by taking the initiative to quiz the Chapel staff for the answers. Great thinking and teamwork!
