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!

The school were very privileged to have Team GB Gymnast Danny Lawrence visit the school this week, and the school were able to complete a fitness circuit with him. After the children’s workout they then witnessed his amazing agility during an exhibition of some of his gymnastic routines.
Young Voices 2014
Ready for the off!
On Tuesday 28 January the school choir took part in the Young Voices 2014 event at the O2 arena.
We joined thousands of other young voices to create one huge choir that performed a wide range of songs to friends and families. It was great to see so many family members supporting the choir. We certainly hope that you enjoyed the concert.
Following the coach journey, we had our lunch then rehearsed for the whole afternoon to make sure we were in a position to give a great performance. If you look closely at the slide shows, you’ll even see our very own Mrs Lynch rehearsing on stage and performing with the teachers’ choir!
During the afternoon we worked with some amazing artists such as Wayne Ellington, who even brought his microphone over to us so that we could demonstrate our vocal skills. The singer Keith Semple performed a great version of ‘Living on a prayer’ with us. Finally, let’s not forget performing with the amazing Stacey Solomon who really had the X Factor!
There wasn’t only singing! The street dance group called Urban Strides got all the audience up on their feet and dancing. It was super to see the families and friends participating in such an amazing event.
Have a look through the slide shows below that tell the story of the day in pictures. If you like what you see, please write a comment about this post.
Have a look at these short film clips of the concert….
