The Nursery children celebrated the Jewish festival of Hanukkah on Wednesday 17th December. The children dressed up, tasted ‘latkes’ (potato cakes), made stars of David and danced to ‘Hava Nagila’!
It has been a very busy half term in yellow class, here are a few highlights of just a handful of things that we got up to!
We used lots of different materials and made “ice castles” like the ones we have seen in frozen!
Junk Modelling Foam “snow”
And finally, our fantastic party! We joined with Merlin class to play all sorts of fun games….
And of course ate lots of yummy food!
Thank you for a super term Yellow Class!
On Tuesday 9th December, a team of budding geographers from Tubbenden took part in a primary schools’ Geography Quiz. The four Year 6 pupils journeyed to Chislehurst School for Girls (without a map), where they navigated their way through a series of difficult questions. The children successfully came 2nd, out of 8 teams who attended, making themselves and Miss Venn very proud.
What a great start to the Christmas season. Last week the Infants held their Nativity shows. Reception, Nursery and some members of Yellow Class became sheep, camels, donkeys, cats, cockerel as well the normal Nativity characters. Whilst Year 1, 2 and some members of Yellow class became Angels, Shepherds, Kings, donkeys, Innkeepers, soldiers and Stars.
The shows went fantastically and the children performed very well. A big thanks to the parents and carers who provided such wonderful costumes.

33 Tubbenden Junior pupils entered the Bromley Primary Cross Country Event at Crystal Palace on Saturday 22nd November 2014.
This event, for Junior pupils, is the largest in the UK. All the pupils finished the race, which was tough and extremely muddy! There were over 1,400 children from 56 Primary Schools.
Years 3 and 4 had to run 1.700m. Years 5 and 6 had to run 1.800m.
13 girls from Years 3 and 4 were first off and ran very well. There were over 300 runners in the race. Katie Brash came 12th, which is a remarkable achievement, and was the first competitor from Tubbenden to cross the line.
The Year 3 and 4 boys were next, with over 400 runners in this race.
Next was the turn of the Year 5/6 girls, where we had three runners. Well done girls!
Finally, the Year 5/6 boys. A fantastic race for both Eddie and Tom, coming 5th and 6threspectively.
Thank you to all the parents for their support and encouragement. All participants should be very proud to have run in the largest Primary Schools Cross Country Event in the UK.
Forget about Stereo Kicks and Andrea – Tubbenden’s Junior Choir has got the X-Factor! Last week they sang at the INTU shopping centre, Bromley, to raise money for Bromley Mencap.
The children sang a range of songs, including ‘White Christmas’ and ‘Silent Night’. Well done to Miss Smith who conducts the choir so brilliantly. Click on the link below to see a short clip of the performance.
Well done children – we’re very proud!
Last week we held our Gift Assembly. Many of the children brought in presents for local children who have been referred to the Salvation Army for support this Christmas.
The collection was in conjunction with the Salvation Army’s ‘Gift from The Heart’ initiative, which collects gifts from shoppers at Bromley’s INTU centre, and the children’s gifts were accepted by Mrs Dawn Derham on behalf of the SA. Dawn was overwhelmed by the generosity of Tubbenden children, whose gifts filled two large cars completely!
Thanks to everyone who donated, and WELL DONE TUBBENDEN!
