On the 6th December the Millwall team came in and talked to the year 6 children about how to keep healthy, their careers and football. They told us about their lifestyles and how important your education is. We are so lucky to have had them come in and talk to the year 6 children about their daily life.

On Thursday 30th of November, the House and Vice captains were asked to host an assembly to remind and guide their house to the victory of the House cup. They were reminded of the qualities of Emily Pankhurst, Florence Nightingale,William Wilberforce and Charles Darwin.
Last Saturday (2/12/17) Tubbenden held their Christmas TFA fair. Lots of people attended and had lots of fun. Our classic event of Santa’s Grotto was another great success with the huge help of some yr 6 pupils taking the job of Santas’ elves. The kitchen had a wide range of food on the Christmas menu for their guests. For entertainment we had the Junior and Infant choir sing some Carols and a Christmas Jumper Competition. All of the TFA had worked and planned very hard to put the exciting event together so we would like to say a huge congratulations for making the fair fun and entertaining for all who attended. We also raised money for future projects and experiences.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all the children who donated a present(s) to their class gift box. The Salvation Amy are extremely glad and impressed, well done Tubbenden. With all the presents so many children will have a happier Christmas this year! Thank you to all of the children, parents and teachers who attended the assembly and contributed to the Salvation Army.
On the 15th of November a guest Actor, Story teller and Author came to Tubbenden School. He kindly related all his amazing stories and performing to year 6s linked to their topic WWII. Despite the tragedy of war, the children learnt a lot about it. With a real meaning of the destruction and deaths Chris told the children a well-known poem called ” Dulce et Dercoum est pro patria Mori.” He hopefully will be returning and using his excellent skills to excite the children again. We extremely hope that all the children had a great time and were amazed by him.

Thank you to everyone who supported the Travelling Book Fair this year. The children were excited to view the books during the day and we really appreciate all those who came and purchased a book after school. This year we sold £1766.59 worth of books, which means each class will receive £45 in commission to spend on books for their class book corners (£25 each Unit classes).
Thank you so much to Mrs Toller and Mrs Felstead who once again helped to organise and run the event each day, and the team of parent helpers who came after school. This would not have been possible without you!
On Wednesday 8th November , Tubbenden competed in the National Young Mathematicians’ Awards(NYMA). Our team consisted of two boys and two girls : Patrick,Harry, Naledi and Joana. The team faced a never-seen-before question, set by ENRICH, which included 3 challenges. After an hour of working in Explore Learning the team nailed it down to the last 10 seconds. Even though Tubbenden won’t participate in the semi-finals Miss Venn was very proud .

We would like to say a respectful thank you to all the soldiers of the wars. The children of Tubbenden have respected this and sat 2minutes silence. Throughout the school, classes have been thinking and working on Remembrance Day. We would like to say thank you for all the soldiers fighting for our country.
