Guide Dogs at University : 2015-11-18


Today was a very exciting day because at the hall where I live, people from Guide Dogs for the Blind came in with their working dogs and also a puppy that is in training to become a guide dog! The puppy’s name was Tommy and he was only 6 months old so he was very excitable! It was really fun as I got to spend lots of time stroking and playing with them and I got to talk to their handlers who had lots to say about life with sight loss and blindness. They had lots of great stuff which they sold as well and over £90 was raised for the charity through donations!

There were also activities where you had to wear a blindfold or special glasses which show you what it is like with different eye conditions and you had to try to complete challenges whilst wearing them. You wouldn’t believe how difficult it was to solve a puzzle designed for toddlers whilst not being able to see!

I had a great time with the dogs and hope they come back soon so I can play with them again!

While you were on half term… : 2015-11-03

Hello Year 6!

How was half term? Was it fun – what did you do?

We don’t have a half term at University 🙁 (sad, I know). It was a normal week for us with lectures, seminars, sports and activities. I had quite a few lectures last week and also have been working hard on a 4,000 word essay that is due in for November.

It wasn’t all work though…I played hockey, saw some friends at the student pub and also got into the Halloween spirit. There were Halloween quizzes, challenges, photo booths, krispy kreme selling AND the opportunity to buy pumpkins. RAG, which stands for Raising and Giving, who fundraise on campus were selling pumpkins for local charities in Reading.

As well as that there was a pyjama day for Cancer Research UK on the Friday – students wore pyjamas on campus and donated money. Like your non-uniform days! They raised over £200.00.

Anyway must dash because I’ve got to go to a seminar. Have a good first day back at school!

Wednesday is all about Sports : 2015-10-23

Nowely here! Wednesdays are my FAVOURITE day. Wednesdays are all about BUCs for The University of Monsters. Every Wednesday our sports teams compete against other Universities in lots of different sports from tennis to football to fencing.

My sport is Rugby and this year I made it on to the Rugby 1st Team. Every Wednesday we have matches against other Universities and yesterday we played Chichester University. It’s great playing for a team and I’ve made a lot of mates from Rubgy.

The team has a mix of first, second and third years. My friends in the photos are Max who studies Pharmacy, Henry who studies Real Estate and George who studies Archaeology.

The final score was 20-8 to us. So we won our match – GOOD NEWS!
