The Spanish Spelling Bee

Yesterday, 12 year seven students took part in stage 2 of the Spanish Spelling Bee. The students were absolutely incredible and stood up in front of their peers to translate a selection of 100 words from English into Spanish and then spell them in Spanish. The students showed a huge amount of confidence and determination and they should be extremely proud of their achievement.

The three winners of this stage of the competition will now go on to represent Clifton School at the regional final.

If you see any of the Bees (names below) around school please do congratulate them!! I have attached some videos/photos of the school final.

Y8 Tapas Trip to The Olive Lounge In Wickersley

On Thursday, thirty Y8 students visited ‘The Olive Lounge’ in Wickersley as part of their module on Spanish food.

The students were extremely well behaved and were a credit to Clifton. The waiters called out the dishes in Spanish and the students were very enthusiastic about using Spanish to order further dishes (and ask for the dessert menu!).

A really great afternoon was had by all involved. The students returned very excited by the experience!
