Football Tournament at Hart Leisure Centre - posted 11th Dec

Red, White and Blue 5-a-side football tournament.
Talavera took part in a football tournament to celebrate the involvement of women into the armed forces. To celebrate, we played a mixed football tournament against other local schools. Beginning the afternoon in the group stages, Talavera stormed through topping their table with three wins: 3-0, 7-0 and 5-2. Making their way to the quarter finals, they faced a tough team. A tense 7 minutes passed with the other team, unfortunately scoring a goal in the last minutes to secure a 1-0 win. Despite being knocked out at the quarter final, all the children had a great time and played well. A proud representation of Talavera Junior School.

It involved every child and showcased their individual talents. Not only did they show balances and jumping, they also involved travel and inversions such as handstands and forward rolls. All the staff members who attended this performance were impressed with the high ability and we cannot wait to see what they produce next term.

Yr 2 3 Angel making

Year 3 Angel making with the Infant school Yr 2 - posted 4th Dec

On Monday, 4th December 2017 Year 2 came across from the Infant School to make an origami angel with Year 3.  Each pair was given a piece of card and we cut out the circular shape.  We cut along one long, straight line and then cut out a crescent shape to make their head.  After that we cut a line half way down.  This would help us make the wings later.  The infants were supported by a Year 3 child to help them with cutting, decorating, sticking and folding their angel.  We decorated it with glitter before we stuck on a piece of thread on the back of the head so we could hang it on our Christmas trees.  When the Year 2s had gone back to school, Year 3 made their own angels without as much support.  Everyone enjoyed it!
