AUTUMN TERM 2 School Council Meetings - posted 7th Dec

This half term the school councilors discussed democracy and their role in ensuring children's opinions across the school are heard.  We discussed the feedback from classes about safety in school, which on the whole was very positive.  Our meetings then focused on Covid safety regulations and how well we feel our school is following these safety measures, with councilors taking this back to classes as a discussion point.

Year 3 - Party - The Tiger Who Came To Tea - posted 15th Jun

There have been so many year 3 birthdays lately and we thought that it would be a shame not to celebrate! As Judith Kerr (the author of The Tiger Who Came To Tea) was also born on the 14th June, we thought we would have a tiger-themed socially distanced party to celebrate all the wonderful birthdays that have already been and will be occurring soon.

Easter at Talavera - Tuesday - posted 7th Apr

Today, before we started doing anything, we all explored the gorse flowers which Mrs Harman-Box had brought in. We were so interested in the edible plants from yesterday that she thought we might like to experience this flower which strangely smells like coconut! We were very careful though, even when we were testing to see just how spiky it is!

Eco gardening - posted 3rd Apr

After two weeks of gardening we have started to see our eco planted seeds sprouting! We have checked our soil and prepared the beds ready to plant our plants over the Easter break. Let's hope the weather is kind to the plants and us over the next couple of weeks. We will keep you posted on the progress of our garden project and are hoping that by summer we will have a great crop of vegatables to shared with you.

Year 6 Grammar - posted 12th Mar

It was a strange grammar lesson for Snow Leopards today... Mrs Harman-Box put on some rock music and tried as hard as she could to distract us from our learning. Luckily, this was not just because she fancied a little sing-song. It was to show us that, if we can concentrate through that, we must really understand! As soon as we finished our learning and had got all our questions right, we joined in the rocking!

Bill and Ben go to the vets - posted 2nd Mar

Bill and Ben recently went to the Vets with Mrs Read and two of our Guinea Pig Monitors.  They had a routine check-up and their nails trimmed.  The nurse commented on how lovely our pupils were and that Bill and Ben were lucky to be so well looked after.  Another great example of how wonderful and caring our pupils are.

Year 4 trip to Fishbourne - posted 27th Feb

On Thursday 27th February, Year 4 had a fantastic day exploring Fishbourne Roman Palace. During the day children were able to explore the mosaics built by the Romans, walk around the gardens and watch a short film about what life was like their during the Roman period. In addition to this, the children took part in a workshop where they learnt many facts about life in the Roman times and also became experimental archeologists and used a range of artefacts to help them draw their own conclusions about how they used to live, The children had a great day and their behaviour and attitude was exemplary.

Nepali Day - posted 14th Feb

Today, for the first time, we held our annual Nepali Day as a fundraiser. As you may remember, Mrs Harman-Box and Miss Partington visited Nepal in the summer. Mrs Harman-Box was leading a group of teachers, including Miss Partington, in how to train other teachers to ensure that every child in the world has fair access to an excellent education. They are struck by how lucky we are, even when we find things a bit harder, and wanted to give something back.
