Match Report

On Tuesday, 5th May, Form V 'A' team played a rounder's match against Cumnor House school at their fields.  We lost the toss and they chose to field first. 

There was some great running and some good hits by the whole team when we were batting. Then it was our turn to field.  We started off well when Bianca got a girl out and we had some great bowling by Lauren and some quick passing of the ball by the team. At the end of the first inning, the score was 5 1/2 to us and 6 to Cumnor House.


In the second innings, we got off to a rocky start when some of our team were stumped out, but we kept trying and by the end we had managed to score lots of half rounders by some great running in the team.  When it was our turn to field, we tried really hard to get lots of their team out and stop them from scoring, but there was an amazing hit by one of their girls and they managed to get a good rounder.  The end score was 12 to Seaton House and 13 Cumnor House.


Well played everyone!                                     By Georgia Allen V




Seaton House Summer Fair

The Seaton House Summer Fair, organised by POSH, is on Saturday 20th June 12-3pm. This is a great chance for pupils and parents to get together, have fun and raise funds for our school. This year the fair will be featuring a BBQ, bouncy castle, splat the teacher, arts and crafts, tug-o-war, face painting/nails, sweets, cakes, lucky dip and much more! Please put the date in your diary and help where you can – class reps will be asking for help running the stalls as well as for some donations.

Goody bags - all children will receive a plain white paper bag next Friday, 22nd May. The idea is that the children can decorate the bag however they wish, while parents fill the bag with pocket money items such as hair accessories, stationery, toys, sweets, and smellies (suitable for school-age children). Out of courtesy to the children who will be buying these at the fair, please do not put second-hand items in there, or loose sweets.

Mufti day - there will be a whole-school mufti day on Friday 5 June. Children can come dressed in their own clothes in exchange for a packet/tube of sweets for the sweet tombola.

Books, DVD and puzzles - if you are having a clear-out over half term, we will be running a second-hand book, DVDs and puzzle stall at the fair. Please bring in any items after half term. No electronic items please.

There will be collection bags in all classrooms after half term for your donations.

Thanks very much.

This event is brought to you by Bourne Hall Museum, the local museum for Epsom and Ewell, along with Historia Normannis, a society which prides itself in bringing history to life in an engaging and exciting way. Visitors can engage with history – seeing, feeling and hearing the lives of medieval people: freemen, craftsmen, and ladies of the court and barons of the realm. Experiences range from dynamic and exciting massed combat, through knights displaying their prowess in the tourney, displays of archery, woodwork, and metalworking, to the singing and music of the court of the time. Historia Normannis presents you the workings of 12th-century life, and offers a history lesson that you will never forget.

Some 60 re-enactors will bring the time of King John back to life in Rosebery Park. Watch and join in the training of the militia, along with the have-a-go archery.  Cheer on your knight in the tourney of honour and see what happens when the men of England take on the army of their infamous King in open battle. Discover how the wounded are treated afterwards, and find out what was their chance of survival. Make money try striking your own coin. See how a knight was dressed for battle and marvel at the armoury display. Get an insight into the must-wears of the Angevin court during our fashion show; discover the textiles they used and how the clothes were made. Discover the food eaten in the great hall as the cooks produce food for the barons’ table. What was Top of the Pops? – hear the songs and the music of the time

Watch the Horrible Histories of the Magna Carta, while children can try their hand at being archaeologists in the mini-digs, or practice ancient crafts. Hear the storyteller’s tales of wonder, and try your hand at brass-rubbing.
