Bilton Silver Band Entertain Us

We just had to share this joyful video rendition of Do-Re-Mi from the Sound of Music by the fab Bilton Silver (Rugby) Band, put together by Princethorpe and Crackley peripatetic brass teacher and Old Princethorpian Jodie Fisher.

With social distancing putting paid to their normal rehearsals they came up with this imaginative way of bringing them all together to make their fantastic music and make everyone smile.

The video also features Jodie’s mum and fellow brass teacher Di Fisher, who teaches at the Crescent. You might be able to spot a few more familiar Foundation faces too.

We think you’ll have to agree they are brilliant and make a cracking sound!! Click here to view the video

Also getting in on the amazing musical video act is Bilton's Silver Training Band, with their fun rendition of 'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' from Mary Poppins. Lots of familiar Crescent faces here, well done everyone for keeping spirits up. Just don't ask us to spell the tune's title!!!

Year 3-6 Holiday Reads

We hope that all the children have enjoyed their holiday reads in Classes 3S, 4M, 5F, 6Y and 6W.

These children will be starting work on the books as we begin term. Year 5 and 6 are using their books from next week, so if they have not read them they will find the work a little more challenging next week!

Key Worker Provision At Crescent School

Crescent School will reopen next week for Key Worker provision. This is aimed at parents who work in critical roles as outlined in government guidance (such as in the NHS or social care), who are not able to access alternative childcare.

A letter was sent out earlier in the week to those parents who had previously expressed an interest in this service.

We are proud to support Crescent School's key workers. If you have any questions regarding this provision, or think you might qualify for it, please contact the office for further information.
