We have made some exciting changes to how Physical Education is taught and learnt at Culvers House for the new school year. The children will be learning PE through the Real PE scheme which will mean their PE lessons will be even more creative, active and fun! Through Real PE we will be equipping our amazing students with the physical literacy, thinking and emotional skills to not only achieve in PE and sport, but also in life! If you would like to learn more about Real PE have a look at their website at http://www.createdevelopment.co.uk/solutions/real-pe/.
On Monday we visited the Ecology Centre. We were able to have a picnic in the park and then went off in search for minibeasts. First we went into the woodland and found newts, spiders, snails, slugs and even a huge slo-worm! We then had the chance to go pond dipping. Each child had a go to see what they could find. Have a look at our photos below…..
Year 3 visited the British Museum to learn more about the Ancient Egyptians and see for themselves the mummies, masks and objects which they have been learning about in class.
A documentary has been produced starring Ben H & Ciara H and includes videos and photos of the whole day.

This week year 5 received some special PE lessons in conjunction with the Sutton Schools Partnership here at Culvers House. Our visitors took the children through a range of fun activities which the class enjoyed immensely. Here are some photos of the children enjoying the activities.
Today the whole school took part in Spanish day here at Culvers House. The classes all took part in a Flamenco lesson which all the children thoroughly enjoyed. They also tasted some traditional Spanish food and took part in some Spanish themed lessons!!
The children all had a fun and exciting day.
We celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite book characters. Everyone looked amazing and there were some very creative homemade costumes.
Well done to all the children who took part and a big ‘Thank you’ to all the mums and dads who spent hours crafting!

This term Key stage 2 were lucky enough to attend a reflection day at ‘All Saints Church’, as part of their PHSE learning. Each class spent an hour in the church, where they were able to complete a range of activities linked to forgiveness and thankfulness. The children really enjoyed the day and particularly liked the calm atmosphere and the fact that they had time to think about all the things they liked in life, such as family, travel, having a home and treating people nicely. The children worked on five stations: one allowed them to create a sculpture of someone that they were thankful for; one was linked to forgiveness, where they could drop and object into water and forgive events in the past; one made them reflect on what life would be like if all they had was a box; another was linked to reflecting on their personal qualities and the last about why they might say sorry. Every class had some great contributions on the day, and many children even took their families to the church after school!
Have a look at the gallery below to see some of the great ideas they produced!
