This week Clifton Community School has been celebrating History week. We have been working on several projects to commemorate the centenary of the Great War.
All Key Stage 3 Humanities classes and GCSE History & RE classes have made poppies with special messages on for Remembrance Sunday. These poppies have been exhibited in the school foyer as a tribute to the fallen from all the wars British soldiers have given their lives in. The students have been enthusiastic, respectful and honoured to participate in this project and are very proud of their contribution to the memory of these brave people.
We have also been selling poppies for the British Legion and are hoping to top last year’s donation of over £120. The students have done Clifton and the soldiers proud!
Also during History week the Creative Arts department and year 9 and year 10 students have been busy making ceramic poppies for a mural in the quad to remember those that gave their lives during the war. They are all individually handmade out of clay and have been fired hand painted and attached to a stick to stand in the quad ground. The students in Art have embraced History week and they are proud to have produced such a moving memorial display to remember 100 years since World War 1.
