Den building

Half term Den building competition - posted 22nd Feb

Over Half term I set Talavera Juniors a challenge of building a den. After much deliberation looking at all of the wonderful structures and how they had been decorated or used a winner was chosen. 
Orla Mold in Year 3. I really liked that she had a spare chair ready for any visitor and a plant pot at the entrance to make it welcoming and homely. Orla received an Explorer Geode Kit for her prize. 
It was great to see all the entries and I hope everyone had great fun making them.

school council

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!

Year 6 Grammar

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!
