The whole school were introduced to the stories of the constellations this week by Storyteller Emma. Class 1 were given the challenge of putting on a show at the end of the day to tell the rest of the school the story they had heard. The story of Delphinus told of the dolphin that helped the musician Arion escape from sailors who tried to throw him overboard and steal his belongings. With a few hats and costumes, a chest full of treasure and an opera singing Arion they certainly brought the story to life! Who knew we had such stars of […]
Class 3 shared their hedgehog expertise with the children in Class 1 today and everyone also had time to go hunting in the woodland for “moonstones” which held a secret message.
After carefully drawing colourful rockets and creating a textured moon the finished works of art were complete. Everyone has been very impressed with how effective they all look and how very different they all are.
The children are very excited about our new topic of Space and have gone rocket mad this week.
Outdoor Club children worked brilliantly together to wash, dry, chop, mash and then press the apples. We all agreed that the apple juice was delicious and just about worth all the hard work.
A group of children recently worked with the police on road safety and speeding issues regarding traffic travelling through Clifton. They tried to catch some speeding cars but the high vis vests gave them away!
Children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 worked with Sarah from Pyjama Drama on road safety. There were lots of games and activities to help them understand how to keep safe whilst out and about near roads.
Class 3 will be working with Mrs Davies this half term on a new project in honour of our school mascot Clif! They will be learning all about hedgehogs and how to help them in the wild before sharing their knowledge with the younger children in school.
Year 1 and 2 children represented Clifton School brilliantly at the Cross Country race at Kirkby Stephen Grammar School in September. They were all fantastic, gave it their all, didn’t give up – even when they wanted to and were, quite rightly, incredibly proud of themselves and each other! Go Team Clifton!
The 7 Cs of Clifton were all on show last Thursday afternoon when Class 1 made the most of the sunshine and set off into the Secret Garden. They showed curiosity in exploring their environment, collaborated and communicated whilst moving planks and playing The Three Little Pigs, created some tasty treats in the sand kitchen and showed confidence whilst trying new things. And they definitely showed commitment collecting all the newly mown grass and carting all the sand to the Little Pig’s kitchen…… and back again at tidy up time! There was also lots of craftsmanship going on!
