The children in the afternoon class have had great fun the past 12 weeks. On a Monday afternoon, Harry and his team from Sportacus have been coaching the children, playing different games and sports and most of all having fun with the children. They have been taking part in many activities such as football, ‘lava ball’, races and lots of exciting games.
A big thank you to Harry and his team who have worked so hard and enthusiastically to ensure that all the children have had a great time while also helping to develop their physical skills. A big thank you also to all parents and carers who turned up to watch the award ceremony.

The morning class have been showing off their science skills, watching and helping with lots of experiments such as making lava lamps and making a fountain with Coke and Mentos! They have also been engaging well, practicing their phonics by playing eye spy, looking for things beginning with S, A and T.
The afternoon class have been learning all about starting school and talking about the changes that might happen in the next few weeks. They have also been looking at different textures, talking about how things feel such as bubble wrap, then using it to create some patterns with paint.
Thank you to all who came to join us on Sports Day. A big well done to all the parents who joined in with the races and an even bigger well done to all the children who took part. It was a very hot day and the children were all so patient waiting for their turns and cheered their teams on with excitement. Well done to the winners, the Orange Tornados!
Over past weeks, six children from year six have been working together in groups of three to make two Go-karts…
On the 10th June they took part in the young eco engineers race, which consisted of them racing their two Go-karts against other schools. Team Inferno won all of their races and team Blaze won three out of six of theirs. Tubbenden was very successful in winning the award for team work. But best of all they won the young eco engineers trophy 2018 !!!!
The children have all been taking part in lots of farm based activities this week to build on their experience at the farm. A post was published earlier in the week containing photos and information about our trip to Godstone Farm.
The morning children went to the school library to see if they could find any farm related books, they then used these books to draw what happened when they went to the farm and the animals they saw. They have also been developing their fine motor skills making animals and animal enclosures out of playdough, moulding different shapes with their fingers and using scissors to cut small pieces of straw to use as fence posts. The children have been showing a huge interest in counting, outside on the field, the children enjoyed throwing beanbags into tyres and identifying the number on the card inside the tyre.
The afternoon class played an exciting tag style game of ‘sheep herding’ during PE, some of the children were sheep and some sheep dogs. Some of the children showed an interest in writing the animal names which led to decorating letters to look like the animal, i.e decorating the letter ‘P’ to look like a pig. The children have shown a huge interest again in emergency services and enjoyed putting out ‘fires’ in the classroom.
