Junior Supremo Training

On Thursday 7th January, our  Year 6 ‘Sports Organising Crew’ visited Cheam Fields Primary School to take part in Junior Supremo training. The children took part in activities that taught them how to lead a group of younger children in a variety of different games and sports activities. Well done to all of the children involved, you were all excellent ambassadors for our school community. I look forward to seeing your leadership skills grow as you continue to organise fun and exciting activities for the younger children. Well done!

Rocket Science in Year 5!

Over the past few days Year 5 have been designing and building aerodynamic rockets as part of our topic ‘To Infinity and Beyond’.

This morning we launched the rockets in the KS2 playground. During the launch, we also conducted an investigation into what variable ( for example, amount of water inside the rocket, how far the cork was pushed into the bottle, shape and size of the bottle) would have the most impact on how high the rocket would fly.

Please read through the comments below about how the children built the rockets and  what they found out.

PE at Culvers House

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/.

Madrid University Trip to Ecology Centre

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 2 trip to the Polka Theatre

On Friday 24th April, Year 2 visited the Polka Theatre in Wimbledon to watch Operation Magic Carpet. The play was about being proud of who you are and everybody really enjoyed it. Mr Eynon and Miss Davys were very proud of how well behaved all children were during the trip, very well done Year 2! The children will be doing lots of creative story writing over the next few weeks and we hope that the play will inspire some excellent writing.
