Four house teams are represented in our school: these are Waterloo (Blue), Trafalgar (Red), Salamanca (Yellow) and Agincourt (Green). These names were selected based on the schools military links and are in fact famous battles. Many of the local roads and housing estates around Talavera are named similarly!
House events occur termly and these offer opportunities for children to show their talents in a variety of different areas. From cricket competitions, orienteering, spelling bees to talent shows we have experienced it all! Children represent their house by working together to win for the glory of the team. The house events culminate in our annual sports day where teams vie to be the overall winners!
House teams meet together to discuss tactics and planning before an event. House leaders have been know to be very competitive in achieving the best results for their team! Each house team has a senior teacher which leads them alongside a Year 6 House Captain and Vice Captain.
On a daily basis children work hard to earn Talavera values and teampoints, these are collated each week and the results are shared the Friday celebration assembly.
