First Year Blog

It’s been a busy second week back, and it’s hard to believe that there are only three weeks to go until half term!

The boy’s spent this week in PSHE lessons thinking about Role Models. Mrs Peattie’s talk on her own role models was inspiring and thought-provoking, and the boys have also discussed their own role models and who inspires them in class this week.

The beguiling prospect of sunny June afternoons spent in lazy contemplation by the cricket boundary rope seemed a world away in the chilly January pre-dawn this morning, but First Year sights have been set on the summer game over the last couple of weeks.  Winter nets sessions have started after school, and all boys who are interested in playing cricket as their summer sports option are invited to attend.  Attendance is not compulsory for consideration, but if the boys wish to improve their technique they are very welcome to come along.  Any questions, please just ask.

The Under 12 Football teams were busy this weekend, with a number of fixtures against Dulwich College.  There were some high scoring wins, and particular praise must be given to Alpha B and James D, who scored five goals each for the B and D Teams respectively.

Captain Matthew B gave us this report for the U12B Team:

“On Saturday, the U12 B Team faced Dulwich in a friendly on the 3G. It was an open, attacking game that ended with an amazing 11-3 win to Hampton. The goal scorers were Alpha B, Finn G, Aaron M and Ed J.”

There were some new faces in the Under 12D Team, and captain Jack S tells us how they got on:

“A damp morning at Hampton School saw Hampton U12Ds celebrating an excellent win against visitors Dulwich College.  Dulwich started brightly, forcing some great saves from Milo B in goal, but soon after Hampton took control with three quick goals.  By half-time, Hampton were in a strong 7-0 lead, and continued in the second half to get a well-deserved win. Well done, Hampton Ds!”

Well done on some great results in some exciting games boys – long may this form continue!

Congratulations to Theo M-J, who has been named Tutee of the Week.  Mr Hill and Miss Barnes have been particularly impressed with his positive and selfless attitude towards other boys in his form, and his teachers have noticed a particularly excellent effort in class recently.

Good luck to all those involved in the Rock Concert this evening – I hope you all have a great time and I look forward to hearing all about it next week!
