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.

    Little Crackers was delighted to welcome PCSO Lithgow and PC Holt into nursery today. Our extra special visitors explained to us that police officers help people and then told us all about the equipment they use and the vehicles they drive. We got the chance to dress up in police uniforms and high visibility jackets and then had a trip out to see the Police van. Some of the children even got locked in the cells in the back. It was great fun – thank you Warwickshire Police.

    The Key Stage 2 Evening of Performing Arts took place last Tuesday 12 March. As always, it showcased the breadth and depth of pupils' musical and dramatic talents as the audience was treated to individual and group performances across a variety of disciplines. The orchestra opened proceedings with a stirring performance of I dreamed a dream from the much-loved musical, Les Miserables. Then followed some 35 performances all sparkling with crisp clear deliveries and well-rehearsed polish. Too many to mention all individually, a wonderful testament to the wide range of the repertoire. Huge thanks to all of the staff involved in preparing the children and supporting the production and to Mrs Olden, Mrs Wildey and Mrs Paphitis who showed us yet again what talent, energy and zest for the performing arts there is at Crackley Hall.

    Crackley Hall's KS1 Performing Arts Afternoon took place on Wednesday 27 February. The concert featured music, poetry and song, and was a testament to the range and talents of the young performers. Parents, family and friends gathered excitedly in the school hall to enjoy this celebration of the talent of some of our youngest pupils. Music Captain, Andrea Zanyi, and Performing Arts Captain, Isabella Osborne, compered and began by warmly welcoming everyone. Mini Brass Group opened the proceedings with a stirring rendition of Hot Cross Stomp and Theo Cowlishaw stayed on stage to play a super cornet solo of Old McDonald's Echo. Then Isabella Osborne performed her set piece Why Am I Always The Bridesmaid. Junior 1 played Sleepless Night beautifully on recorder and were then word perfect as they recited the poem What Is Under. Next up was Julia Kozhan and she delighted all with her piano solo Ode To Joy, followed by Arisha Shujaat who spoke slowly and clearly as she enunciated her poem Falling Star. Mrs Goode's singing group delivered a fabulous and enthusiastic performance of The Work Song. Then Andrew Parizzi played Indian Song on piano and Carter Headland performed the poem Dragonfly. The concert continued with Junior 2's amusing rendition of Skipping Steps, and Amelia Turvey carefully fingering out her piano solo Twinkle Twinkle. Junior 2's Violin Ensemble had the audience yee-hawing along as they played Old Chuck Wagon. Then the very talented Isabella Olden played a beautiful piano solo Cruella de Vil. Junior 2H came on stage to recite Wet Play and the Junior 2 recorders played the lively St Lewis Blues. Allegra Fox performed the thought provoking poem A Lion, she was followed by Andrea Zanyi singing Shy. Miss Pavett's singing group cheekily brought the afternoon to a close with a wonderful performance of I Won't Grow Up. Our enormous thanks and congratulations go to all our accomplished performers who took to the stage in front of their proud parents, and of course to their teachers who have worked so hard to help them achieve so much.
