Introducing Crescent's Courier Kids

Welcome to our very first edition of Crescent School’s Courier Kids. Our team of reporters have been meeting every Tuesday morning to produce articles that we hope the children at Crescent will find interesting and fun to read.

We wish you all a wonderful half term holiday and look forward to hearing what you think about our section of the Courier when we return to school.

Super Member of Staff

The children at Crescent School have been nominating members of staff who they feel have stood out as being especially super this half term.

This half term’s super member of staff is….

  • Miss Wrzesniacka aka Miss V

Miss V was nominated because…

“She makes everyone laugh. She always works her hardest all day long and she always smiles and is happy.”
Well done Miss V!

My Book Review

What is it about?

Queenie is an amazing book. It’s about a young girl called Elsie, whose nanny had a disease called T.B.. Shortly after, she caught a different sort of T.B, but was still hoping to go to the Queen’s Coronation.

This book brings a smile to my face. I rate this 5 star and it was written by the bestselling author Jacqueline Wilson.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

On Friday 25 September 2019 Crescent School hosted our first ever Macmillan Coffee Morning. There was tons of cake scattered all around the hall and all you had to pay was 50p a cake.

Everyone donated cakes and we made £575. Parents and friends of Crescent came into school during the morning and bought cakes too.

All of the children had cakes for break instead of their snack!! 

There were a lot of spare cakes so we sold them at pickup time and in the evening to Bilton Silver Band.

Macmillan Coffee Mornings raise money to provide helpers and support for people affected by cancer.

Thank you to everyone at Crescent for raising so much money to help support this great charity!    

Mrs Webb said, “I have never seen so many cakes outside of a supermarket. The support from FOC, parents, grandparents and children was brilliant - all for a fantastic charity . THANK YOU ALL.”
