This week Year 3 have been investigating different types of soil and finding out what it is made from. The children used magnifying glasses to look closely at the soil and discovered snail shells, dead leaves, twigs, pieces of decomposed fruit, dead insects, small rocks and hair! Here are some close-up pictures and samples we collected by using cello tape. Look closely. Can you see the hair? Which animal or insect do you think it belongs to? You can have a go too. Look very closely at the soil sample below.
This week in Nursery we have been enjoying learning about different jobs and careers. We have been postal worker, nurses and doctors, bakers, police officers and construction workers. We have had lots of fun role playing the different jobs.
Cleves Primary School was ranked in the top 250 state primary schools in England ranking at 68. This is a great achievement for our school. Four other Schools from the Boleyn Trust were also included on the list . Well done to New City 49th, Tollgate 67th and Rosetta 95th.
Children today at Cleves wore yellow, red and spotty clothes to support Children in Need. Thank you to everyone who donated money for the local charities. We will let you know how much we raised in our next edition.
Reception have been doing some science experiments this week! These enchanting Magic Potions involved mixing different ingredients together and predicting what might happen. Children loved watching the ingredients fizz and bubble!
This year Cleves Primary School are holding a fit-a-thon for all the children to take part in. This will take place on 9th December at 11am,which will be a 30 minute exercise session held through Zoom. The children will have to do numerous activities during this time. This sponsorship event is extra special to us this year as we will be doing it in memory of one of our pupils Joshua Ossoulo. This is a charity that Joshua and his family are very fond of. Mill grove supports children with complex needs.

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. It is a project based task that embraces teaching skills and subjects in an a way that resembles real life. Children have to solve, design and create prototypes that cover different aspects of science: Biological, Physical, Chemical and Environmental. Each class has a completely different project that they complete. Keep an eye out for our grand reveal of all the projects in the STEM fair at the end of the year!

The first fundamental British Value we are looking at this half term is ‘Democracy’. We are going through the election process to choose our Cleves Ministers of Parliament (MP). I would like to say a big thank you to all of those pupils who entered into the 1st stage of the campaign. All entries have been judged and the following pupils below have successfully moved onto stage 2. They will now need to conduct their campaigns next week and convince the whole school’ ,as to why they should become Head Boy/Girl. One of their first jobs will be to have a 5 minute broadcast section within our zoom assemblies.
Careers Week In the week beginning 23rd November ,we are holding a Careers Week’ at Cleves. We will bringing careers talks and events to the pupils through video conferencing! The Career Week endeavours to expose children to a wide range of vocations and help pupils start to think about their interests and effective choices about their future career. Careers Week is also a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the various careers within our community. Our Motto is ‘A Brighter Future!’ Having examples from our community that the pupils can relate to will help to promote this further. If you would like to inspire our children to aspire for greatness then please look out for our form on Parent Mail over the next couple of weeks to register your interest.
