Y3 Rounders

It has been another fun and exciting week at Clifton. I have thoroughly

enjoyed walking around the school observing all of the amazing activities

that have been going on in school.

On Wednesday we had a group of Secret Agents presenting 1J’s assembly.

The children were very proud talking about their work so far this term and

their proposed trip to Australia. They have researched about the animals

they may find in the sea, the 50 most deadly animals in Australia and also

created maps of Australia (all in two weeks – phew!). 1J also performed a

wonderful song too. Well done to all of the children, Mrs Johnson, Miss

Bromley and Mrs Hayden for preparing the children.

Next week in school we have Steve Biddulph who is talking to parents about raising boys on Wednesday evening, and raising girls on Thursday evening. Both evenings promise to be extremely informative and extremely valuable to us as parents. If you would like to reserve a ticket please log onto www.stpetersyork.org.uk/publiclectures. Before half term each class/year group will be hosting heats for Clifton’s

Got Talent. Anyone can enter and the winner of each heat will perform in

the final. Please encourage your child to enter and take part, it is so much

fun.

On Saturday 10th June, we will be hosting an Open Morning. All areas of

school will be open and it will be an opportunity for everyone to have a

look around our wonderful school. Please share this date with friends,

neighbours and families so we can share our philosophy on education. On

the same morning St Olave’s School have an Open Morning too. Our Year

3 children have been invited with their parents to have a tour of St Olave’s

and to find out more about the wonderful opportunities that will be

offered next year.

I have some wonderful news to share with you all. Mrs Loftus and Ms

Collins are both pregnant and are expecting the birth of their first child

later this year. Mrs Loftus will start her maternity leave at the end of the

summer term and Ms Collins will start her maternity leave in October half

term. We are working very hard to appoint staff and cover, and I will

hopefully be able to provide more news by half term. We are all extremely

excited and we wish Mr & Mrs Loftus and Mr and Mrs Lawrence (Collins)

all the very best for the months (and years) ahead.

Marine Biologist, Anthony Hurd delivered all of the non-recyclable plastic

that the children had collected during the children’s beach clean. Year 2

are writing letters to the Government as I write this! Thanks to Mrs Hall

and Mrs Spencer for organising this great activity.

I wish you all a relaxing weekend. Best wishes

Clothes!

All of Year 1 had a special surprise swim last week.

Continuing our Jack Stalwart adventure down at the

pool the Year 1s had to travel North, South, East and

West to locate missing Max... but every time they

reached a destination he had moved on again and had

been spotted in a different direction. They also practised their observation and diving

skills, looking underwater to locate sharks, shells

and other maritime objects. We ended our fun

session with a ' dodge the sharks' game and even

managed to squeeze in a bit of filming for 1J's

assembly. We had a

great morning, special

thanks to Mrs Jones

for putting it together

for us.

The children in Nursery have been having fun in the sun this week! The Rising 3’s investigated and explored using water and they really enjoyed learning how to

collect, transport and squirt water. They found out that it went a really long way! On Wednesday some children went to Forest school. The children were fascinated by a

big tree that they spotted on the way and they worked together to see how many children it would take to measure the trunk. It took 16 children holding hands! They spotted another tree and decided if it’s trunk was wider or thinner. They found out that the second tree only took 7 children to measure it. At Forest school the children had

a great time exploring, making, investigating and playing together. We hope the summer is finally here to stay!

2H have been exploring the island of Coll this

week. Our journey through the book ‘Sula’ has led

us to the Scottish islands and we have been

thinking about the jobs that people on the island

do. We looked at an Art gallery on the nearby

island of Tiree and decided to make collages of

beautiful sea views, just like the artists on the

island will do. We have also written great

recounts of our visit to Flamborough and

character descriptions of the book’s character,

Magnus!

We have had a thoroughly exciting time exploring Australia

whilst on the lookout for Max! Although we didn’t find him,

we did do lots of sight-seeing and saw some of Australia’s

famous landmarks. It started on Monday at The Great

Barrier Reef. We booked onto a tour and learnt all about the

famous history of one of the world’s seven wonders! On

Tuesday we packed our bags and headed in land, ending up at Uluru near

Alice Springs. When we got there, we realised we weren’t able to climb it as

it was very sacred so eventually, we decided to move on. After a long time

travelling, we stumbled upon the Sydney Opera House- it was incredible!

Amongst the travelling, we created our own landmarks and had a go at

baking Australia’s famous Anzac biscuits! It’s been an exciting mission but

Max is definitely not in Australia! We wonder where we will be sent

next…

Today the children decorated a wooden tree each, they looked fantastic. Well done to everyone. See you next week.

Mrs Deri-Clark

This week our search for Jack has moved to Egypt amongst the valley of the kings. Another letter arrived on Monday

from Jack explaining his brother had been spotted near the pyramids. In and out of the classroom we have been building pyramids out of Lego and blocks. We discovered they are built to a pattern and have had to use our maths skills to help us calculate how many bricks are needed in each layer just like the master builders in Egypt must have done (except they had to work without Numicon to help them!) We have also been learning about hieroglyphs; now that we are such good code crackers we are able to decipher the -

hieroglyphs to write our own names and messages to each other. We have even printed our own cartouches which look like ancient papyrus. Sand features prominently in Egypt and has also been a feature in our classroom too learning how to build with the right consistency to make sand bricks as well as making our own sand timers.

Forest School in Year 1

Please could children in Year 1

make sure they have their

wellies in school as well as a

sun hat and long trousers or

leggings of a light material for

Forest School. There are lots of

nettles at Forest School and

bare legs can get stung

easily. As the weather gets

warmer it becomes

uncomfortable for waterproofs.

Now that the sunshine has finally arrived please can

we remind you about a few things concerning sun safety?:

Children should come to school wearing sunscreen -there

are good 8 hour ones available.

Please apply this before they arrive in the school building.

They should all also have a school sun cap with them.

On very hot days we will help the Nursery and Reception

children reapply sun cream to themselves. The school will

supply sun cream which is Nivea. This avoids the need for

multiple bottles of sun cream

and streamlines the process of

applying sun cream.

If your child has an allergy to

sun cream then please inform

your child’s teacher.

Professor Randall has also had a public presence through her writing, lectures, and radio and TV appearances and her most recent book, Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs: The Astounding Interconnectedness of the Universe will be on sale at the lecture.

Her studies have made her among the most cited and influential theoretical physicists, she has received numerous awards and honours for her scientific endeavours and was on the list of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People of 2007.

Tickets for the lecture are free and are available on our Eventbrite page.
