Building a Go-Kart

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.

GreenCleaners

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!

Aladdin Pantomime

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.

Celebrating Differences

Tubbenden had an assembly on differences and how we should not judge people for who they are. We learned that if we were all the same then life would be boring. Celebrating differences is when we all come together to share what’s unique and to accept that we are all different.

The New Trim Trail

On the 19th of February the new trim trail was officially open. The school council and the TFA worked extremely hard and well together to complete it. A huge thank you to the T.F.A (Tubbenden Friends Association), school council and everyone else who helped out. The year 2’s are very glad and excited to move up into year 3 knowing they’ll have it there. All the children love it and can’t wait to enjoy it more. We hope everyone enjoyed the fruit kebabs which were kindly made to be a lovely reward.
