Clifton High School

Sports lunch celebrates talent

Page 1

Senior pupils from Year 10 upwards gathered in the Beech Room on May 3rd with their year heads, Dr Neill and the P.E. Department staff. Miss Price gave an opening address thanking all pupils for their ongoing dedication to training and playing for the school teams. She reflected on the loyalty, reliability and commitment of the 11 Year 13 sportswomen who are departing at the end of term. Some girls had represented the School since 2002 when they started off in the Year 4 swimming team galas! Hockey - Players Player to Henri Feeny, Most Improved Player to Julia Summers and Player of the Season to Chlo Hargroves. Netball - Players Player to Katie Norris, Most Improved Player to Frankie Crossley and Player of the Season to Elly Watson. Captains badges to new swimming captain Clemmie Beaham Powell and netball captain Henri Feeny. It was announced that Vikki Jones retains her hockey captaincy next season and netball vice captain is Olivia Sherman. Miss Price also reminded us of Katie Norris & Brett McCarthy Harrops contribution to school tennis, before reinforcing the individual brilliance of Alex OMahony who competed for the GB Junior synchronised swimming team at the European Championships and the ongoing phenomenal progress of World No. 3 GB pole vaulter Lucy Bryan. Alex presented Lucy with the Grove Cup for national representation in sport. Miss Price finished by saying how proud she is of the contribution to school sport by Clifton High pupils over the past 24 years, and Dr Neill concluded by seconding that view before thanking Miss Price on behalf of everyone for her fine leadership and inspiration.

After a lunch of lasagne, garlic bread, salad and ice-cream, the school swimming, hockey and netball captains gave their end-of-season reports and presented trophies and awards as follows: Talented in Sport Podium badge to Emma Wills in Year 11 for her silver medal in the PUMA black belt World Taekwondo Championships in Swindon in March; Contribution to Swimming trophies to Clemmie Ursell, Emily Cobby, Alex OMahony and Frankie Crossley; Service Shield for services to swimming to Elly and Maddi Watson; Certificates for Bristol Schools Swimming Championships to Matt Bray, 1st in 50m butterfly & 2nd in 50m freestyle; Captains Awards to Vikki Jones, Lucy Bryan, Elly Watson and Maddi Watson;

Page 2 Healthy snacks with Year 6 Reception 2 learn about Japan

Mr Sunayama came into Reception 2 to help us learn more about Japan. The children asked him lots of different questions mainly related to their own interests, such as what is the fastest car in Japan? With the help of Kazuma, who was himself born in Tokyo, we learnt some Japanese like the way to say hello and thank you. Kazuma also showed us some of his Japanese childrens books. Mr Sunayama had told us about childrens day in Japan when it is the custom to make koinobori, traditional carpshaped kites, to hang outside. We have made some of these in school. Mr Sunayama and Kazuma brought in lots of interesting Japanese things to show us including traditional spinning tops, Japanese newspapers and some little china animals. He has also kindly given us a pack of origami papers to try out our skills in this traditional Japanese craft. If you would like to find out some more about Japan come to our class to see our display. We also have all our names written in Japanese on our door!

Year 6 had a food treat with Mr Goldsmith this week! To kick start our Olympic theme, Year 6 went to the Food Technology room for an afternoon focused on healthy snacks. They made delicious fruit kebabs and tasty flapjacks. After Mr Goldsmith demonstrated how to prepare the food, Year 6 followed his techniques. Once back in the classroom, they wrote up their afternoon. They included diagrams, sub-headings and technical language and described how the snacks linked in with our Olympic theme. They also found out about the type of diets that top athletes need to follow. Thank you so much, Mr Goldsmith, for your help with this fun packed afternoon!

Page 3 Year 3 go to @Bristol

As part of their Olympics theme, Year 3 explored @Bristol where they became scientists for the day. After a mind-bending morning of challenges and conundrums, they took a closer look at the human body using a very cool digital microscopea truly disgusting experience! After a healthy, well-balanced lunch, Year 3 met a neurology expert, who had them using their brains by thinking about working memory and how we can improve it. The children put all five senses to good use throughout the day!

We would like to draw to your attention the NHS guidance on keeping your child off school.

CHS Bee News

We are delighted that the new hives and equipment have now arrived and we are now in the process of building two new bee hives. Our prize winners from Foundation Stage and Key Stage 2 were Bella and Georgia, who were able to tell Mr Cowper what 30lbs is in kilograms. Well done!

Cough and cold. A child with a minor cough or cold may attend school. If the cold is accompanied by a raised temperature, shivers or drowsiness, the child should stay off school, visit the GP and return to school 24 hours after they start to feel better. If your child has a more severe and long-lasting cough, consult your GP. They can give guidance on whether the child should stay off school. Raised temperature. If your child has a raised temperature, they shouldn't attend school. They can return 24 hours after they start to feel better. Rash. Rashes can be the first sign of many infectious illnesses, such as chickenpox and measles. Children with these conditions shouldn't attend school. If your child has a rash, check with your GP or practice nurse before sending them to school. Headache. A child with a minor headache doesn't usually need to be kept off school. If the headache is more severe or is accompanied by other symptoms, such as raised temperature or drowsiness, then keep the child off school and consult your GP. Vomiting and diarrhea. Children with these conditions should be kept off school. They can return 48 hours after their symptoms disappear. Most cases of vomiting or diarrhea get better without treatment, but if symptoms persist, consult your GP. Sore throat. A sore throat alone doesn't have to keep a child from school. If it's accompanied by a raised temperature, the child should stay at home. We hope you find this information helpful and thank you for following the guidance in the interest of others wellbeing.
