Year 3 make notes in the nature area

In English, Year 3 pupils are going to write a ‘descriptive scene’ piece about the nature area, using lots of different writing techniques.
We visited the nature area to get inspiration for our writing and made lots of notes on our clipboards!

Year 7 Geography enquiry at the Mall

Congratulations to Year 7 who interviewed 436 shoppers at the Mall, Cribbs Causeway on Friday 24th January.

The children were complimented by the customers on their politeness, smart uniform and maturity during their fifty five minute survey.

They focussed on two questions:

· What was your main reason for coming to the Mall as opposed to using another shopping centre?
· Where did you travel from to get to the Mall today?

The variety of shops was cited as the main reason quoted (106/436) by the customers using the Mall. The majority of the interviewees came from the Bristol area (193/436), followed by South Gloucestershire (79/436).

Year 7 performed impressively and were a credit to Tockington. We look forward to seeing the completed enquiries. Congratulations Year 7.

Congratulations to Year 8 pupils!

Congratulations to Imogen Rees, Elliott Orchard and Otto Cullis who have all been offered places at Clifton High on the back of their excellent performance in the recent Entrance Examinations. Special praise however must be given to Imogen who has received a Scholarship. We congratulate too Charlie Sanzo on his outstanding performance in the entrance examinations to Colstons. I know he impressed all with both the standard of his work and by his level of confidence; well done Charlie! These are tremendous results and to be offered places into Senior Schools so early in the year is testament to the standards that they are achieving; well done.
