Tectonics Homework

Year 8 Geography students were set a 5-week homework project to make something linked to their tectonics topic. This was an open task to allow them to be creative. They were given some ideas to get them thinking in class and then left to get started. Each week students were reminded of the task their plans were checked and resources shared.

Theatre Trip

Some of our Year 10 English students recently took a trip to The Lyceum Theatre in Sheffield to watch a production of ‘An Inspector Calls’ from the National Theatre.

As well as being a truly enjoyable experience for the students, they were also able to pick up some excellent insight into the play by viewing a live production. This will no doubt be invaluable to the pupils as they continue their GCSE work.

Sky Sports Leaders

Clifton pupils have been working along side Paul Broadbent as part of the Sky Sports ‘Living for Sports’ Programme.
As part of the programme, the pupils have had the opportunity to take on the role of a sports leaders, which included planning and delivering a session to older students!

Dance Exam

The Y10 AND Y11 BTEC dance performance exams took place on Thursday 17th December 2015.

The Y10’s opened with pupils performing to Lion King, the first time they had performed with the live band! All students had spent hours beforehand in makeup with the help of Miss Charlton who made their faces into Lion lookalikes. The students were fabulous and all succeeded in passing the practical unit 4.

The Y11’s were up next with their fairytale stories. For this unit, they had to plan a character and create a scene telling a story. The students organised the whole performance from the tickets to the music and pictures on the screen! Once again, all students secured a good grade from their practical unit 2 and set an example to our up and coming performers.

The Cranworth Road girls performed their unit 4 together and also performed a solo for the first time in front of an audience.

The exam groups were joined by the Y8 and Y9 dancers, who performed two great pieces. This was an excellent standard from our KS3 students and we are expecting some fantastic dancers performing in the future!

We were extremely proud of every performer and would like to congratulate all the students who participated.
