School Prints Project with Turner Contemporary
Since Term 5 we have been working with Turner Contemporary on the ‘School Prints’ project which aims to engage school children in contemporary art. Through this project, we have been gifted a set of limited edition prints which now have pride of place in the ‘old’ hall.
During Term 5, Y5 pupils participated in online lessons led by Turner Contemporary and produced some amazing artwork of their own, inspired by the prints. You may have watched the virtual tour of the exhibition that they produced for the whole school to enjoy. Some of the Y5 pupils also produced online tutorials to share with the rest of the school so that they too could produce artwork inspired by the prints.
During Term 6, pupils throughout the school have been watching the tutorials and producing some fantastic artwork of their own which has culminated in an exhibition in the ‘new’ hall which all children have had an opportunity to visit.
After a year of ‘bubbles’, It has been wonderful to finish with a whole school project and celebration of our creativity as a community.
World Book Day 2021
Cliftonville will still be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 4th March. There will be a wide range of activities available through the live lessons and timetable throughout the day to inspire and encourage our love of reading and books.
Harvest 2020 celebration
This year we will be celebrating Harvest in school with a virtual whole school assembly on Friday 16th October. In these times of bubbles and separate playtimes for different year groups, we are really looking forward to all coming together (virtually) to consider the importance of community and helping each other.
As in previous years, we will be collecting donations for Thanet Food Link. They are always blown away by the generosity of the Cliftonville community and were delighted to hear that we are going to collect for them again this year - the need is greater than ever. If you are able to donate, please send contributions in on Thursday 15th October or Friday 16th October. Please send all contributions in a carrier bag so that we can minimise the amount of handling that needs to be done.
Please see below for the link to the list of foods most needed.
Many, many thanks in advance for your generosity.
