Little Crackers

A journey into learning

At Little Crackers we believe that it is never too early to start on an exciting journey into learning, that's why we have carefully structured our nursery for two-year olds, three-year olds and pre-school.

Little Crackers Nursery, at the heart of Crackley Hall School, is carefully structured for two-year olds, three-year olds and pre-school.

In our vibrant nursery rooms and attractive outdoor areas, we offer flexible sessions with an emphasis on learning through play and exploration, in a friendly, caring environment.

We are open for 51 weeks a year, with year-round and term-time only places available.

The nursery is based in two rooms, one dedicated to the Terrific Twos and the larger main nursery room for the Thrilling Threes and Fabulous Fours. The activities in each room change regularly and are focused around the individual age groups’ specific needs, supported by a qualified Early Years Teacher. We can accommodate a maximum of 12 two-year olds and 40 three and four-year olds.

Our children also benefit from trying new activities at an early age including Music, Drama, PE and Games, Forest School and French lessons, all taught by specialist teachers.

    Our Stay 'n' Play toddlers had a fantastic, fun filled, final session when they joined us for our annual finale the Teddy Bears' Picnic. In a busy morning they enjoyed plenty of teddy bear craft, sticking and gluing cut-outs of teddy bears and created some colourful masterpieces. Little Crackers Stay 'n' Play will be back after our Summer break on Wednesday 11 September in our regular time slot of 10.00am to 11.30am. Our first visiting activity will be Drama Tots on 25 September. We look forward to seeing you all then.

    Huge congratulations to Team Firecrackers who won 'Best Engineered Car' at the National Finals of the 2019 Jaguar Primary School Challenge last week The team of five Year 4 pupils travelled to the British Motor Museum at Gaydon, Warwickshire to take part in the competition. They were one of 39 schools that had won through from local Regional Finals. Team 'Firecrackers', comprising Junior 4's Amelia, Jasper, Woody, Henry and Thomas had been working so hard, after school, all year to prepare for the day. The challenge requires teams to research, design, manufacture, test, promote and race the fastest car possible using standard chassis and engine housing nets with a car body made only from card. It is a technical brief but one that has proven to really engage potential future engineers. Mrs Hardwick and Mrs Spillane who helped guide the Crackley Hall team were jubilant, "What an amazing day. Our Crackley Hall pupils have worked so hard. They've dealt with the pressure of competition brilliantly and we are so very proud of them." Huge thanks must also go to the team's sponsors Skywave Communications, Chapter Agency, Sew2It Sewing School, WMG (Warwick Manufacturing Group), Laser Tools, Race Rapid and Tow-Trust Towbars, and of course the children's parents. We are very grateful for all your support and hard work.

    Crackley Hall was delighted to welcome, Old Princethorpian and Cricket Ambassador for Complete Cricket, Ian Bell MBE into school on Tuesday 11 June for a special Batting Masterclass. Ian put the awestruck boys through their paces. From the start he stressed the importance of getting the fundamentals right, looking at grip, stance, backlift and alignment, his message was 'cricket is simple if you get the basics right'. Over the two-hour session, you could see the boys' cricket improve as they worked in groups to put Ian's advice into practise. The session finished with a question and answer session. Ian was enthusiastically quizzed by the boys, with questions ranging from 'Who was the most challenging bowler you faced?' and 'Where were the most difficult pitches to play on?' to 'What was it like to play with Freddie Flintoff?' They even quizzed Ian on his time at Princethorpe. Ian answered all their questions good-naturedly explaining that he had always enjoyed sport and had first played for Warwickshire in their U10 squad. He encouraged the boys to play all sports, talking about all the opportunities he had at Princethorpe and the inspiration and support he had received from the College's former Director of Sport, Gwilym Price. He said, "I loved sport and at Princethorpe I played everything - rugby, football, hockey and cricket. I was 16 when I finally decided that cricket was what I wanted to do." Crackley Hall's Assistant Head – Co-curricular, Charles Lamprecht said, "Huge thanks to Ian and Jamie and Sam from Complete Cricket for an inspirational masterclass. The boys were thrilled to have a cricketing legend coaching them and I am really looking forward to seeing them put their new batting skills into action."
