In the Nursery this week…

In the Nursery, the Morning Class have been exploring the Literacy Focus ‘ Who Sank the Boat’ and have enjoyed a lot of boat based activities! The children played a game of sharks and boats in PE using hoops as boats to try and avoid the sharks and made boats out of junk modelling material which they put in a tray of water and used small wooden people to see how many people it took to sink the boat!

The Afternoon Class showed a lot of interest in playing schools so we turned the role play area into a classroom for the week where the children enjoyed setting activities for their friends to do. In PE they have had fun tackling obstacle courses, climbing, jumping and balancing. The children have also shown a lot of interest in building towers recently so the afternoon children had a fun task of seeing how high they could build Lego towers and some of them challenged themselves to count the bricks!

All day Friday we have celebrated Saint Patrick’s Day in the Nursery. The children were invited to come in wearing green clothes and we read the story of Saint Patrick. The morning children enjoyed activities such as making soda bread, attempting some Irish dancing and painting some snakes with pipe cleaners. The afternoon children watched a video about how Saint Patrick’s day is celebrated, engaged in a rainbow ribbon dance and had fun making rainbow CD’s.

Happy Saint Patrick’s day 🙂



Six girls from year 6 have decided to create a litter picking club to help our environment as well as our school. This club runs every week on a Tuesday. It came as quite a shock to our leaders and attenders of the amount of rubbish just on our school field. This club is a great success and we wish to continue it to improve our land.Well done GreenCleaners!

Dear Parents and Carers,

The Nursery Team would like to thank everybody who attended our Mums and Chums event. It was great to see everybody enjoying activities with their children. Well done to all of the Nursery children for their beautiful singing of songs to celebrate Mother’s Day. There were lots of activities enjoyed by everybody in the classroom such as painting some daffodils, construction toys on the carpet and the children’s favourite of icing and decorating biscuits!

We hope you all had a fab Mother’s Day! 🙂




World Book Week

This week at Tubbenden we are celebrating world book day. On Monday 5th March to Friday 9th March we are lucky enough to have an author visiting us: Margret Bateson-Hill. Throughout the week each year group will get a workshop from Margret which will be very inspiring. For world book day each year group has a book written by Margret and will be studying it throughout the week. We are all looking forward to the workshops.

Aladdin Pantomime

Just before the Christmas holidays Tubbenden was lucky enough to be visited by Tickled Pink Productions. This year they performed an amazing performance of Disney’s Aladdin to the whole school. The children really enjoyed his performance and are extremely excited to see their next show. Tubbenden really enjoys their performances.

Celebrating Differences

Tubbenden had an assembly on differences and how we should not judge people for who they are. We learned that if we were all the same then life would be boring. Celebrating differences is when we all come together to share what’s unique and to accept that we are all different.

In the Nursery this week…

In the Nursery the Morning Class have been exploring the topic ‘Show and Share’ and taking it in turns to share their experiences over the Half-Term break. They went on to create a scrap-book using their ‘Snap-shots’, photos and drawings which has been added to the ‘Nursery Library’.

The Afternoon Class have had fun exploring the Literacy Focus ‘The Runaway Pancake’ after so many children were excited to tell their friends about celebrating ‘Shrove Tuesday’ with their families. They drew the characters from the story, made ‘Story-Maps’ and went on to re-enact the narrative using puppets.

They finished the week by holding a ‘Talent Show’ following one child’s enthusiasm for magic tricks and treated their friends to songs, dances and joke telling with a variety of props to add pizazz to their performances.

All children enjoyed the opportunity to make pancakes both in the Morning and Afternoon sessions and they were pretty tasty!

The New Trim Trail

On the 19th of February the new trim trail was officially open. The school council and the TFA worked extremely hard and well together to complete it. A huge thank you to the T.F.A (Tubbenden Friends Association), school council and everyone else who helped out. The year 2’s are very glad and excited to move up into year 3 knowing they’ll have it there. All the children love it and can’t wait to enjoy it more. We hope everyone enjoyed the fruit kebabs which were kindly made to be a lovely reward.

Year 5 have been rehearsing their Christmas play ‘Scrooge’. They are trying very hard and will be performing the play soon. The children have had to remember all their lines, because they have been practising so much their play will be funny, and entertaining. As an excelllent result we have decided to write about it in our blog. Well done to Year 5 pupils and teachers for piecing together this wonderful show!
