Year 6 Fun Days - posted 1st Jul

Those of us who didn't go to Hindleap stayed at school for three fun-packed, very busy and generally quite mucky and wet days! Splitting ourselves into competitive teams, we took part in all sorts of challenging yet fun events: raw egg and spoon races; jelly races; welly-wanging (watch out behind!); and some hilarious paired blind races, in which one sighted child led a blind-folded one! We also valiantly triumphed in team grass-skiing, which required lots of teamwork, but failed miserably to float a ball in a drainpipe pierced with many holes - drenching many children! Still, because we all got soaking wet, we had a great time. Huge thanks to our parents for sending us in with spare clothes! In addition to these activities, we enjoyed a cinema trip to see Toy Story 4, made and ate the most delicious freshly-baked pizzas, iced and gobbled down biscuits, were whizzes at quizzes,and generally had an exhausting but brilliant time. We loved the games and made strong bonds with new friends!

Taiko Drum performance - posted 26th Jun

Wednesday 26th June 2019, year 6 showcased their drumming talents to parents at an afternoon drumming performance. Each class performed a different musical piece that they had been learning over the last 6 weeks. Some very brave children also performed a solo to express their musical talents. All parents/ carers thoroughly enjoyed the performance and were wowed by the Japanese drumming skills that the children had mastered in such a short space of time! Thank you Taiko Meantime for such a wonderful drumming experience at Talavera!

French Petting Zoo comes to Talavera - posted 20th Jun

On the 20th June a petting farm visited the school and all classes had time visiting the animals which included goats, sheep, ducks, chickens, geese and donkeys.  The children thoroughly enjoyed observing and stroking the animals as well as learning more about them from the animal handler.  The children were enthusiastic to use their French vocabulary they had learnt earlier in the week with some pupils even taking prompt sheets along to the animal visit to help them remember the French animal words.  Some lucky hardworking members of classes got the chance to hold an animal.  It was a fantastic experience for the children and really enthused them to learn and apply their French knowledge.

Sponsored Skipping - BHF - posted 14th Jun

This week at Talavera, we have been preparing ourselves for our charity skipping afternoon to support the British Heart Foundation. Each child had a sponsor form that they took home to gain sponsors for how many jumps they could do. Throughout the week, each class had a special PE lesson based on skipping: games, races, different ways to skip and to practice. Friday afternoon saw the rain hold off for all our classes to have a 15 minute session putting into practice the skipping techniques they had learnt. Each class took part in the sponsored skip counting, skip races against their peers and the big rope jump. Well done to all the students who took part and helped raise money for the British Heart Foundation from another fun and enjoyable sporting event at Talavera.
