On Tuesday Key Stage 2 made their annual visit to the David Weir Centre for their sports day, and as you can see from the photographs, they all had a fantastic time. Well done to all the children who took part and a special thank you to Mrs Wardlaw for once again organising a sports day we can all be proud of.
Despite the rather disappointing weather the summer fair was another resounding success for the hard working parents and teachers of the Culvers House PTA. The families enjoyed a variety of fun activities all with an international theme! Future Pro Wrestling once again provided wonderful entertainment for the children, and parents, in the school hall with three international themed matches and a final triple threat match which the amazing Dragonita won to become the first ever Culvers House world cup champion. We had some beautiful birds of prey on display (thanks to Miss Corps), Beat The Goalie a BBQ and so much more. Thanks to everyone on the PTA who worked so hard for months to prepare this fair, all the parent and staff helpers, to all the lovely people that donated raffle prizes and to Future Pro Wrestling (www.fpwuk.com) and to DJ James for providing the music! Now on to the Christmas Fair preparations and we have some lovely things in store this year including Huskies!!!

Our two year 3 classes recently visited London Zoo as part of their IPC topic The Rainforest. They visited the Rainforest Experience and were able to experience the sights and sounds of the rainforest for themselves, as well as seeing some of the other fantastic animals in the zoo.
Our year 5/6 girls football team had the great honour of representing the London Borough of Sutton at the London Youth Games last Wednesday 2nd April at The Crystal Palace sports centre. The girls were competing against Londons top teams and managed to get through the opening games into the last 16. They played some fantastic football and were desperately unlucky not to pick up a victory in the three games with a 0-0 draw and two defeats by just one goal. In the last game we pushed the best team in the tournament and gave them their toughest game of the day, but lost 2-1. Once again the girls sportsman ship and behaviour was impeccable and they did Culvers House proud on and off the field.
Congratulations to Che’anne, Brooke, Angelina, Jess, Niah and Charlotte.
Here are some pictures from the day !
Have a great Easter break and enjoy the sunshine, which is on its way…
We will see you back at school on Thursday 24th April.
The year 5/6 girls football team had a very successful trip to Nonsuch secondary school on Friday 14th March taking part in a tournament to find a school to represent the London Borough Of Sutton in the London youth games.
It was an exceptionally warm March morning and the girls took part in vigorous one hour warm up session, which was then followed by eight consecutive games against some very strong teams including the winners of last years tournament. The girls did the school proud winning all eight games and only conceding one goal in the process, so we now go on to the London youth games at Crystal Palace sports arena to take on the finest London has to offer.
Well done to Jess, Che’anne, Angelina, Niah, Charlotte, Brooke, Toni and Jade!!

Our Love for Reading Assembly Wallington Fire Station
Last week, Wallington Fire Brigade came to talk to KS2 about why reading is so important for their job.
They showed us an example of a record sheet that they fill in for every call they receive and the key information they have to gather. They brought with them a map of the local area. They have to be able to read the road signs and names to get to their calls quickly and efficiently. We asked the White Watch firefighters lots of questions about what their favourite books were as children and if they had a favourite author.
After the assembly we were lucky enough to have a tour of the fire engine and have a look inside all the storage compartments at the resources firefighters use to fight fires.
Thank you White Watch for coming to talk to us about your love for reading!
