In the Nursery this week…

In the Nursery this week the children have been exploring the topic of ‘Show and Share’ with lots of opportunity to discuss what they got up to during the school holidays, share photos and create a book to be added to the ‘Nursery Library ‘ of all their adventures.

Below are some other activities that the children have enjoyed:

Millwall FC Visit

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.

TFA Christmas Fair

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.

Chris Connaughton

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.

Book Fair📚

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!
