Outdoor Explorer’s Club

Week 11:

The Reception ‘Outdoor Explorers Club’ were very excited to go 0n an adventure to find mini-beats in the Tubbenden Wildlife Garden this week. They used magnifying glasses to take a closer look at ants, worms, slugs and some water-boatmen on the surface of the pond.

 

Luckily no one went for a swim and we had lots of fun!

Week 9:

The Reception ‘Outdoor Explorer’s Club’ were excited to plant some sunflower seeds this week and check in on the progress of our potatoes which are growing nicely!

The children also engaged in a ‘bark rubbing’ creative activity on the school playing fields and used lots of different coloured crayons to make some very bright pictures.

Week 8:

The Reception ‘Outdoor Explorer’ Club have been tending to their planted potatoes this week watering them and making sure they are still covered in soil as well as continuing to build the ‘Bug Hotel’ and keep it stocked with lots of compost materials to attract some mini-beast buddies!

We also participated in a ‘Nature Walk’ around the school fields to see what signs of ‘Spring’ we could see. The children were very excited to tick off the different things on their list as we found them such as leaves, blossom and clouds. They even spotted a squirrel!

 

This is the last week of ‘Outdoor Explorers Club’ before the Easter Holidays, we hope that you have a lovely break and look forward to seeing you when we return.

Excellent Netball Match!

 

On Tuesday the 21st of March, Tubbenden’s fantastic netball team played an exhilarating away match against Darrick Wood Junior School.  With excitement bubbling inside of them the team headed to the school. Both the teams had improved massively since the match at Tubbenden at the beginning of the year.  A shrill whistle jerked the game into action, Darrick Wood had some incredible shooters however Tubbenden’s interception skills were just as impressive.  We played two games as usual (and added up the points from each game to reach the overall score) and,surprisingly, both teams drew until the final half of the last match.  With approximately 4 seconds to spare Darrick Wood scored a miraculous goal.  Darrick Wood won 5-4 but it was a good game with lots of good sportsmanship as well.

Thank you to Darrick Wood for letting us play with you!

Week 7:

The Reception ‘Outdoor Explorer’ Club have been planting radishes this week and were excited to check on the progress of the potatoes they planted last week.

They also enjoyed a mini-beast hunt around the garden using magnifying glasses to find some small-world insects, and ‘watering’ numbered flowers with water pistols.

Finally, we began construction on our new ‘Bug Hotel’ and are going to start filling it with compost materials and hopefully we’ll have plenty of little visitors check in for us to observe!
