On Monday, we had the pleasure of taking 24 Y11’s to Sheffield town hall for the GCSE Science Live trip.
After hearing from 11 doctors and professors of various routes in the Scientific field, our pupils came away seemingly inspired from hearing the routes scientific study is heading in.
The presentations included topics from future energy resources to embryonic culturing, time machines to wormholes, DNA to states of matter and examination techniques from an AQA assessor. This lead to our students actively participating in asking the lecturers questions in front of the lecture theatre. We were the first school to ask a question out of a packed theatre (that can host in excess of 2000 people). Well done to all of the pupils who took part!
On a fine, fresh Saturday morning the Y7 boys played Oakwood at Middle Lane. Before the game, the player’s morale was still high and all still eager to play despite the results in the past not going our way. As the game started Clifton’s enthusiasm carried on to the pitch, with the first 10 minutes gone and still neither team able to break the deadlock, Gezja managed to wriggle through a few players from the halfway line with his tricky feet, he found himself with a goal scoring opportunity and took it away with a vicious strike!
The boys were really up for the battle ahead. Unfortunately, the lead was short lived as Oakwood pulled a goal back, taking a 3-1 lead at halftime, despite all of the hard work they had put in. A Fergie-
The second half began and after a short time, we scored to make it 3-2. Oakwood then responded with a goal, making sure they weren’t going to lose their lead. 4-2 the game was poised, some full-blooded tackles were going in, mainly from the Kandrack (Neville) twins. We brought it back to 4-3 from a looping free kick. With 10 minutes to go, Clifton managed to break down their defense, a strike towards the net goes and was blocked, but only by the arm meaning we had a chance to level the score up from the penalty spot, Gezja looked confident and tucked it away! Questionable celebration I may add. With little time on the clock, both teams were pressing for a winning goal, Oakwood found themselves with a bit of luck to take the ball away from what only can be described as a game of pinball in the box. Unfortunately, there was no time to respond and the game ended 5-4.
Well done to everyone who took part!
This year’s Safer Internet Day (SID) celebrations will take place on Tuesday, 5 February 2019. The campaign’s slogan, “Together for a better internet“, is a call to action for all stakeholders to join together and play their part in creating a better internet for everyone, and especially for younger users.
On the Last Wednesday of
All the children had a great time, either showing off their skills or learning how to skate for the first time. Those who had skated before, promoted the Clifton way, by helping those who were a bit nervous. All the children represented the school well, being polite and well mannered. They all returned having thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Great trip all round!!
7.3 are now aiming to keep up their attendance record so they can go on another reward trip in the summer term.
Congratulations to Year 9 Students in Celebration of Effort 2nd Collection
