Oxford MUN Conference
Spaghetti and Marshmallow Challenge!
classrooms to take part in the Y3/Y6 Class Buddies scheme. This
scheme involved an icebreaker for the children to interact as well as
an inventive challenge. For the challenge, a mixture of Y3 and Y6
students in groups had to build a tower out of marshmallows and
spaghetti. In order to win, students had to build the tallest tower that
was able to balance a golden coin!
Class Buddies is a creative way for the children to spend their golden
time. Furthermore, by mingling Y3 and Y6s, class buddies is a great
opportunity for Year 6s to lead in a fun environment; for Y3s to build
their confidence when interacting with older children while
simultaneously promoting primary school harmony.
Silver in Girl´s Football
Football Tournament 7 a side- Girls:
The football tournament was hosted by Runnymede and we were excited to play after all of our training in school.
The first match we played was against St Annes School, which ended with a score of 2-0 with King’s College as winners.
The second match we played was against Runnymede school, which ended with a close score of 1-0 with King’s College winning.
The third match we played was against ICS School, which ended with a score of 2-0 with Kings College as winners again.
The fourth match we played was against Hasting School, which ended with King’s college winning with a score of 2-0.
As we won all the previous matches, we passed on to the semi-finals, playing against Hastings School which ended with a score of 1-0 with Kings College as winners.
We won the semi-final so when we reached the final, the whole team was excited and determined to win. Unfortunately, King’s College lost 1-0 to the British Council after an intense match. Soon after, we took our silver medals and went home by bus, content with our final result due to our hard work.Players: Lucía C, Lucía G, Carla G, Valeria B,Beatriz M, María P, Laura M, Blanca G, María B, Claudia P,Gabriela P, Elena R,Claudia M

University talks at King's College
King’s College students meet many of Britain’s greatest universities
On Tuesday 16th of October, we were fortunate to be visited by some of the UK’s finest universities. Year 12 and 13 students had a lunchtime mini-university fair with representatives from Warwick, City (London), Lancaster, Sussex, East Anglia and Reading.
At 17.00 many students from Years 11, 12 and 13 came along with their parents to hear a joint presentation by Imperial College, University College London and King’s College London. The first two are in the World Top 10, and the third is in the World Top 30.
On October 18th, the whole of Year 12 attended the annual UK university event in central Madrid, where the aforementioned institutions were joined by many other famous names from among Britain’s elite centres of higher education.
The admissions officers have been uniformly complimentary about the quality of the questions King’s pupils and parents ask, as well as the kindness of the welcome they have received her.
