Talavera Treat - posted 16th Jul

Children and adults alike cooled down in the beautiful sunshine we have been experiencing again this week, by taking a run and slide down our Talavera Treats slip and slide.  What fun we had sliding down the slide with the cold water in our faces, seeing who can get furthest down the slide. The children really enjoyed the treat and just wanted more! It was fantastic to see them let their hair down after all the hard work they have put in this year.  A great deal of fun and a wonderful treat had by all.

History Day - posted 11th Jul

A fantastic time was had by all when Talavera was transformed into a Museum of British History for the day. Children enjoyed a range of experiences, from food tasting, fashion shows, dancing and games, to hands-on exploration of historical artefacts from LP's and gameboys to a 1966 Morris Minor! Timelines and quizzes completed the mix up of events in a day thoroughly enjoyed by adults and children alike. We look forward to re-opening our Museum next year!

Skipping workshop - posted 6th Jul

On Friday 6th July, children from across the school had the privilege of working with Mrs Adolphe, building their skipping skills. The children were taught a variety of tricks including double dutch skipping, skipping in pairs and how to jump in and out. The rest of the school were then treated to a performance where they were shocked and amazed at how the children had adapted in the space of an afternoon. We would like say a big thank you to Mrs Adolphe for her time and say well done to all those children who took part. We hope our children will continue to be enthused about skipping - a fun way to keep active

Headleap Warren - Day 3.... the final day - posted 4th Jul

We had a slower and more weary start this morning as we sleepily packed up ready for home. But the day had only just begun. So we quickly sprung into action attacking the team challenge, tackling the highest climbing wall and floating gracefully to the ground after taking a giant leap of faith on the high adventure. We are saying a sad farewell to the centre shortly and wish that we could stay here for longer.

Hindleap Warren - Day 2 for our Year 6's - posted 3rd Jul

It was an early start today as some of us were excited to spot a group of deer outside the bedroom window at 5:30am. A hearty breakfast set us up for the day which consisted of more fire building, taking a leap of faith as we jumped from a platform 9 metres up in the air and conquering our fears as we battled the climbing wall. This evening we enjoyed the traditional talavera quiz and team games before we crawled into bed.

Hindleap Warren - Update from our Year 6's - posted 2nd Jul

After arriving at the centre and fighting with our duvet covers (which some of us found easier than others), we toured our area and tucked into the first meal of the day. Our first activities were both muddy and smokey. We launched into them with enthusiasm and gusto but they have left us ready to shower due our delightful smell at the end. Tonight we are looking forward to exploring the grounds further on an exciting night walk followed by hot chocolate and cookies before bed.
