Latin Quiz, Creative writing and Science Fair!

3rd Year Blog

Welcome to the Third Year Blog!

The Third Years had two PSHE sessions with their Form Tutors this week. On Monday and Thursday we continued to work through the “Sex and Relationships” topic with the Third Years. On Thursday evening we welcomed Third Year parents to School for the “Study Skills” evening, where we heard talks from Dr Yates, Mr Neville and the School Counsellors on how we can help and support the boys with their own learning and revision.

Here are some other highlights from the week:

Science Fair

The Science Fair is an opportunity for boys in the First, Second and Third Year to extend their interest in the sciences. Competitors have been individually or in teams working on a science project of their choice, and they will be presenting their experiment and/or their findings to the judges and their peers at the Science Fair during lunchtime on Tuesday 17 March. Boys will have produced an exhibit, display or other presentation of the work they have done. They will also speak to the judges about their work in a 3 to 5 minute presentation, and will be responding to any questions put to them by the judges or their peers. Any boy that is yet to make a start on his project should do so as soon as possible. If they need any equipment, they should come to see Mr Cook in the Physics office. This is going to be a great event, and I hope to see lots of you there supporting those presenting and exploring the many projects being showcased!

Don’t forget to wash your hands

One of the Hampton nurses has recorded a very important video telling us all why we need to wash our hands and the best way to do it. Take a look here:

Junior Model UNited nations conference on Saturday 25 April

This conference is aimed at absolute beginners or pupils with very limited MUN debating experience.

If there are any boys who do not attend our weekly MUN club but would like to try MUN for the first time, ask your tutors to email your names to Miss Field or go see Miss Field in the Politics office this week.
