The morning provision have been talking about different means of transport this week. During a PE session the children were very excited to play a parachute game which involved listening for their name to be called and running to the opposite side. They have also been developing their counting and number identification skills by selecting a toy boat with a number on and trying to count the correct amount of people to match the boat. In our outdoor provision, an ‘ocean’ was created in our water tray with lots of different sea creatures and boats, testing the boats to see how many people could fit before the boat sank!
The afternoon provision have shown a great interest in ‘the Gingerbread Man’ this week so after reading the story the children enjoyed drawing the characters and using puppets to re-tell the story to one another. They also had a special treat when we gave the children the opportunity to make gingerbread stars, they helped each other to measure the ingredients and mix the biscuit dough. Building towers has proven to be a popular activity this week, some of the children have been using unifix cubes to make long towers and have been looking at what’s taller, themselves or the tower.
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 !!!!
On 19th of April Tubbenden Football team played against Marian Vian Primary School. Battling hard, they managed to score a goal in the second half- fifteen minutes before the game ended. They carried on until full time and in their efforts were able to win the game!
Six members of year 6 are lucky enough to be able to take part in a project which includes building a go-kart. Two children from each class in year 6 are working in teams of 3 to create a go-kart that will be raced when finished. Each week we meet working on it in stages, near the end a design is put on the go-kart. A lot of hard work goes into it.
Here is a pic collage showing what they have done so far.
Mr Maher has reintroduced her wonderful Gardening Club to all children in the Juniors. This club will run on a Wednesday Lunchtime.

We hope everyone has had a wonderful Easter Holiday over the past few weeks! New events and activities are being introduced to our lessons. The work in our school as progressed over the holidays. Welcome back!
Six girls from year 6 have decided to create a litter picking club to help our environment as well as our school. This club runs every week on a Tuesday. It came as quite a shock to our leaders and attenders of the amount of rubbish just on our school field. This club is a great success and we wish to continue it to improve our land.Well done GreenCleaners!

This week at Tubbenden we are celebrating world book day. On Monday 5th March to Friday 9th March we are lucky enough to have an author visiting us: Margret Bateson-Hill. Throughout the week each year group will get a workshop from Margret which will be very inspiring. For world book day each year group has a book written by Margret and will be studying it throughout the week. We are all looking forward to the workshops.
Just before the Christmas holidays Tubbenden was lucky enough to be visited by Tickled Pink Productions. This year they performed an amazing performance of Disney’s Aladdin to the whole school. The children really enjoyed his performance and are extremely excited to see their next show. Tubbenden really enjoys their performances.
