Leanne visits Clifton School

Last week we had a visit from the tooth fairy! Leanne from Ghyllmount dentist came in to school to teach us all about keeping ‘Sugarbug Doug’ out of our mouths! They all absolutely loved dressing up as dentists! We also really enjoyed flossing the Lego teeth and brushing the big teeth! We even got a sticker at the end! The children were also left a present which includes a mini toothpaste!

Ghyllmount Gardeners
October 2020

During lockdown the 'Ghyllmount Gardeners' were busy nurturing and growing sunflowers. Most of them flowered and looked bright and cheerful for us all to enjoy.
Needless to say one member of the team  (naming no names - John Lewis!)  had to 'out grow' the rest of us with Dave,his sunflower. However we feel he had an unfair advantage by growing it in his conservatory instead of outside like the rest of us.
Many thanks to Leanne for providing all the sunflowers for us to grow and enjoy.
