Armed forces day 2021 - posted 26th Jun

The whole school were able to participate in the Armed Forces Day art project. We greatly enjoyed drawing portraits to represent every role in the Army. We learnt lots about the different jobs that members of the army have. The display at the bandstand on Saturday 26th June was very impressive and the children loved seeing their artwork displayed

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.

AUTUMN TERM 2 School Council Meetings - posted 7th Dec
