Spratton Pupils join JAC County Hockey (11.3.15)Posted: 11th March 2015
13 of our Spratton Hall pupils have got into two different JAC County Hockey training squads this Spring. After a couple of rigorous assessment sessions earlier in the year, in the Northants County, Sam Turberville-Smith, Tommy Simeons, William Brinkman, Charlotte Kemsley-Pein, Phemie Jennings, Elena Willcox, Katie Murray, Amy Hoffman and Rose Cassidy were all selected to play for the U13s whilst Myfanwy Fleming-Jones and Katy Salvesen were selected to play for U14s. In the Warwickshire County, Douglas Ralston was selected to play for the U13s and Oliver Mourant was chosen to play for the U14s.
It is a huge achievement by these pupils and we wish them all the best in their tournaments later in the Spring.
World Book Day (5.3.15)Posted: 11th March 2015
The most wonderful air of excitement surrounded Pre-Prep recently as we joined in with the national celebrations of World Book Day. Dressed as their favourite story characters, the children came to school in an amazing array of cleverly crafted costumes, from Horrid Henry to The Cat in the Hat and ‘Where’s Wally’.
The day was kick-started with a book-themed Assembly, where we discovered stories most loved by a range of famous people. Then, dressed as a mouse, pretending to tip toe through a dark, wild wood, Mrs Sanchez re-enacted a scene from a well-known Julia Donaldson story and Miss Powell caused quite a stir when she emerged as a huge life-sized Gruffalo, complete with a poisonous wart on the end of her nose! A fun-filled day followed, packed with amazing story themed events, including a costume parade, writing activities and an author workshop led by Mr Lacey. The grand finale was a ‘Story Time’ with a difference, which saw all the children venturing off around the school to settle down and listen to stories in a range of exciting venues, read by different members of Spratton Hall staff.
A huge thank you to parents for their time and help with costumes and to everyone involved for making the day a truly special and memorable event for the children.
Year 1 Visit to Papa Cino's Italian Restaurant (3.3.15)Posted: 04th March 2015
A trip to Papa Cino’s in Northampton for lunch provided the Year 1 children with a very exciting change to their normal lunchtime routine on Monday 2nd March.
We were warmly welcomed by Stewart and his team into their cosy trattoria styled restaurant with murals on the walls and candles dripping slowly down the sides of the wine bottles on the tables.
The children were able to sample a selection of pizzas and pastas, with many children proudly tasting new dishes despite initial reservations, as they learnt about different Italian foods.
Having been given some spaghetti and pizza dough to feel, the children set to work creating the most imaginative thing that they could. The end result – a pineapple, a sword fish, numerous hedgehogs and many other wonderful creations!
U10 Rugby 7s Tournament Win (2.3.15)Posted: 02nd March 2015
Our U10 Rugby 7's team went off to Oakham on Sunday for Oakham's annual 7 a-side tournament. Spratton Hall was in a pool with Lincroft, Stoneygate and St Faiths and the boys came out of their group as winners without having a single point scored against them. They then beat St John's Cambridge in the semi-finals which meant the cup final was against Beachborough. Spratton Hall won 10-5 having fought back from a try down making them tournament winners. The boys played some superb rugby and their teamwork was quite outstanding. Special mention must also go to Toby Cousins who was named Player of the Tournament.
