It’s been an exciting couple of weeks in the Nursery exploring the topic ‘Starting School’ with lots of activity in the ‘school’ role-play area, designing our own school uniform badges and discussing what to expect when starting school in September.
The children also celebrated the festival of Eid last week. One of the children and their family celebrate the festival at home and the children were lucky enough to have the opportunity to look at photos and listen to their friend talk about their own experience of Eid. We then had a ‘sweet feast’ which involved eating cakes and sweets and did some dancing to Arabic children’s songs.
Tubby bear got in on the action this week having been on a camping adventure over the weekend with one of the Nursery children! The children were so excited to hear what he had been up to that they made a camp in the outdoor area and enjoyed finding sticks to make a campfire and tell each other spooky stories. This continued all week!
We hope you have a lovely weekend and look forward to seeing you next week!
On Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th July, Year 6 stormed the stage and rocked out with two outstanding performances of ‘We Will Rock You’. We were thoroughly entertained by the superb cast of excellent actors, singers, dancers and backstage technicians, who have worked so hard and enthusiastically to produce this show. The children embraced the story, the songs and the opportunity for some make up and rainbow-coloured hair!! We are so very proud of Year 6 and this will certainly be a show to remember.
We would like to say a huge thank you to the parents and the staff for their support with the show, to Karen and Lucy from Dance Works for their choreography, and to the TFA for providing refreshments.
Year 6 are currently taxing their brains (excuse the pun) by learning about money, banking and finances. The unit of work covers a multitude of money matters, such as bank accounts, interest, credit and debit cards, savings and investments, as well as the risks of loans and overdrafts. The children are thoroughly enjoying the learning, which is prompting much discussion and raising questions, and is helping to raise their awareness to prepare them for financial decisions in the future.
Yet another fantastic day at Norman Park! Yesterday saw the gathering of the best athletes within the Borough of Bromley. Tubbenden were proud to have 10 members of their team through to the big event. Competition was tough and all children perform to their best.
Huge congratulations to our two medal winners, James and Alex. Well done boys! It was a pleasure watching Tubbenden at their best.
Today Yellow Class visited Horniman’s Museum as a finale to our “Sand and Water topic” we were able to look around the aquarium and had our very own “hands on experience” to discover creatures that live in Rivers,Ponds and the Sea!
All Ready to go!
Can you see Sammy in the Tunnel, we found these in the Indonesian mangroves!
The Jellyfish were our favourites!
Look a starfish!!
Then it was time to explore the creatures up close:
We liked watching the frogs jumping around!
We had just enough time to visit the musical garden!!
Then it was time to go! Safe to say we were all EXHAUSTED from all the fun with most of the children falling asleep for the minibus journey home!!
The behavior of the children all day was exemplary! A fantastic day Yellow Class.
In Year 1 on Friday we made Animal Puppets. Some of our parents came in to help.
We had a great time sewing and decorating our puppets.
We can’t wait to use our puppets in a Talk for Writing show.
A big thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came to help.
Year 1 teachers
During Wednesday’s assembly, the junior children were joined by very special visitors to talk about Guide Dogs. Our guest speakers, Paulette and Sarah, were joined by Elmy and puppy-in-training Mandy. The children learnt about the importance of guide dogs, how to behave around a working dog and the training process. We all really enjoyed the talk and the dogs were extremely popular amongst children and staff!
Many thanks to Paulette, Sarah, Elmy, Mandy and all at Guide Dogs
