Since school has begun, Tubbenden have had brand new updates adapting the school. In every building of the school we now have soundproof and fireproof doors. Now that we have had a new class joining us, Mr Turvey has ordered a temporary classroom on the field. While they stay and settle in there, the team are making a permanent building which will probably eat in to summer next year. In the Grand hall we also have a new ceiling with sun lights and bright L.E.D lights. An extra notice is that the tech team have introduced new chrome books which have Word Microsoft a touch screen and Google Classroom. A huge congratulations to the Tubbenden TFA and building team for bringing these new updates to our school.

On Saturday the 10th of December 2016, Tubbenden children were rewarded with another fun-filled, action-packed Christmas fair; it was extremely fun and brilliant. The chldren and parents were lucky enough to have the TFA put together such a wonderful Christmas extravaganza.
There were all types of different activities such as the money tree, the chocolate, drink and alcoholic tombola, arts and crafts, seeing Santa and many more. There were also fantastic, exciting, brilliant rides such as the exciting Disco dome, the fast spinning tea cups and the hair-raising bull ride.
At the end of the excellent fair it was topped off by Tubbenden’s fabulous firework display; there were all sorts of colour and patterns. “It was absolutely amazing,” a student complimented.
A big thanks to the TFA for arranging this fantastic fair for us all to enjoy.

On Tuesday 12th, Wednesday 13th and Friday 15th April, the Year 6 children had an excellent opportunity to take part in First Aid training. They were taught lifesaving skills, such as how to respond to someone who is unconscious, injured, choking or bleeding and who to contact for help. These skills are extremely valuable for the children to learn and may, one day, help them save someone’s life. The training was provided by Gary Currier from NMA Training and kindly funded by the Tubbenden Friends’ Association.
A big thank you to Gary and the TFA from all in Year 6!
The children are very excited about their new MUGA, and I am very grateful to the TFA who’ve worked so hard to turn an idea into reality. The MUGA is not only a great resource for break-time play – we also want to use it to support sports development at the school, providing opportunities for all children to improve their skills in a range of sports.

Congratulations to our budding artists, Dylan in KS1 and Isobel in KS2, whose designs were chosen to be printed on the front cover of the TFA Christmas Fayre programme.
Well done and thank you to all the children who entered.
This week, the Tubbenden Tuck Shop opened. During assembly time Year 5 children carefully organised the healthy snacks to entice buyers! Many children queued up sensibly and challenged the Year 5 children to give them the correct change after buying a tempting treat.
The Tuck Shop will be open each day (weather permitting) at play time by the end of the Year 3 corridor. Thank you to those children who had the correct money, this helped speed along the queue.
The School Council would like to say a very big THANK YOU to the TFA who have supported the setting up of the Tuck shop.
