Headmaster's Message

Headmaster's Message

Dear Parents

I hope you have enjoyed a productive week at work and at home, as we have done here at school.

We have focused this week on the theme of sun care, with the summer beckoning and warmer temperatures hopefully not too far away. The children have taken on board these messages really sensibly and I am grateful to Mrs Noyce and Mrs Webb in particular and the children in Year 6 for being so proactive in putting this message out to the children.

Each year in my Year 6 Geography classes we spend time learning locations of cities, countries, mountains, seas, rivers, oceans and so on in our Geography lessons. This culminates in the annual interhouse quiz which was an exciting affair this year with the children showing superb levels of knowledge and confidence. Well done to St Andrews house for their ultimate success and warm congratulations should also go to the other teams who took part.

There is much to look forward to next week with an assembly on the latest Bwengu fundraising as well as the celebration breakfast for the Year 6 children following their exam successes. The Year 5 Taster Day at Princethorpe College is always an enjoyable one for the children involved and I will go over there to meet them when they are picked up by parents at the end of the day.

Finally, of course, we have the Summer Fete planned for next Friday and I do hope you are able to come along at least for some of the time to support the event and enjoy the activities with your children.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Joe Thackway
Headmaster

Year 4 Explore Music In Technology Workshop

Crescent School’s Year 4 took part in a half-day music technology workshop at Princethorpe College on Thursday 12 May. Hosted by Director of Music, Gil Cowlishaw, the session took place in the College’s dedicated Music Technology suite. The children were introduced to computer music production concepts such as sequencing and arrangement and then encouraged to experiment. Using the technology software Soundtrap, the children enjoyed creating music in a completely new way. Starting with drum machine patterns and loops and adding texture through the addition of bass, keyboard and even vocal lines the children each created their own unique piece.

After a short break and an obligatory Princethorpe cookie, the children moved on to explore the concept of harmony. This time using online song writing software Hookpad, the children built a pattern of major and minor chords and overlaid their own melodies. Finally, the children listened to their music in a variety of music styles including rock, pop, jazz and even reggae.

The Year 4s clearly enjoyed the workshop and exploring music in a new way and everyone was able to save their creations to their OneDrive accounts to take home to share with their families.

Mr Cowlishaw, commented, “We had lots of fun in our music technology taster, the children were all fantastic to work with and created some amazing pieces.”

St Andrew’s Crowned Champions Of The Inter-House Geography Quiz

Crescent School’s annual Inter-House Geography quiz took place this week, on Tuesday 10 May, and as always it was a hotly contested affair. Pupils in Year 6 have been working hard all year learning the mountains, seas, rivers, countries and capitals of the world. In their lessons they have participated in regular quizzes with the highest scorers earning themselves the right to represent their House in the final. The quiz took place in the school hall with the added pressure of an audience of pupils from the upper school.

It was a closely fought competition with the three Houses neck and neck throughout and hardly a mark dropped between them. Not many Year 6 children across the country can locate St George’s Channel or the River Danube and Elbe on a map, or name the capital of Ecuador, but Crescent’s did with some ease. Their geography knowledge was just incredible.

In the end it was St Andrew’s House that were delighted to be crowned champions, a victory that was all the sweeter as it was the first time the blues have lifted the trophy.

Many congratulations to all who took part; competitors, scorers, and adjudicators, it was a super event, and the best of luck to Year 5 when your turn comes around next year!

Latest Learning Mentor Review Meetings

Pupils participated in review meetings for our 'Learning Mentor' initiative today, taking stock of the progress they have made. They met with the same member of staff and reviewed the academic targets they set for themselves at the beginning of the year. They have been regularly reviewing their progress against their targets in their classes but this was another opportunity to reflect on their progress, self-assess where they are now and where they want to be at the end of the year.

Our Learning Mentor programme gives responsibility for their learning to the children from Year 1 up to Year 6. Staff do not tell pupils if they feel they have achieved their targets, instead they guide pupils through their books, feedback, comments and reports. The initiative empowers the children and gives them the responsibility to strive to achieve their own set goals.

The sessions were very positive, and we look forward to the final review at the end of the school year.

Sun Safety Assembly

Year 6 delivered a Sun Safety Assembly to the whole school. They were all dressed up ‘sun safe’!

The assembly ended with the Slip, Slop, Slap Song, which the whole school had been learning in Hymn Practise.

  • Reception Class watched the George The Sun Safe Superstar animation and then had fun with The Splash of Colour and Colouring Fun sheets. They also completed drawings of themselves as Sun Safe Superstars.
  • Year 2 created some fantastic Sun Safe Super Star Posters which have gone on the display boards.
  • Year 3 completed Sun Safe crosswords, Sun Safe word searches and the Eye Spy Sun Safe worksheets.

We have also created two displays in the school. One is all about how to stay safe in the sun and the second is about UV monitoring – we have appointed a UV Monitor to change the figures daily.

All of this will lead to the school gaining Sun Safe accreditation.

Class 6W Final Report

Today, Friday 13 May, you will be able to access your child's final Report on 'My School Portal'. Other Class reports will be published later this term.

Staff have spent much time gathering evidence and writing these reports to keep you informed of your child's progress, achievements and wellbeing in school. This is of course, the last report from Crescent before 6W leave us and we wish them well. We do hope you enjoy reading them and sharing comments.

A change to our reporting system allows you to access which Junior da Vinci awards your child has received, why and from whom. To do this a 'Rewards' tab will appear on your screen for each 'My child' tab and build up over the year. JDV totals are reset every year on 1 September. The attached screenshot illustrates this.

Class 1SS Chocolate Maths!

Class 1SS spent time revising their doubling skills to 20 by decorating their virtual cookie with real chocolate chips! We recited our doubling and spotted patterns in our answers before being rewarded by enjoying our chocolate chips at the end of the activity.

What makes a good friend?

As part of our PSHE Jigsaw objectives, we were prompted to think about what we look for in a good friend. We drew around Elliott and filled his outline with all our ideas about what makes a good friend. We then competed a sorting game so we could discuss what are good friendship behaviours and those that aren't.

Class 3Y Record Breakers

In English, 3Y have been studying information texts using the Guinness World Records and The World's Laziest Duck and other records. For the homework, the children attempted records suggested on the GWR Kids website. These included how many socks you could put on one foot in 30 secs and the number of teddies caught whilst blindfolded.

Following on from this, pupils decided on some of their own records to break. We took to the field and attempted records such as; most skips in 1 minute, number of push ups in 30 seconds and most football penalties scored in 1 minute. The children will now be writing recounts of their record-breaking experiences.  

As you can see from the photographs, much fun was had by all.

School Promise

School Promise Rule Of The Week

This week’s promise is in the category of Good Learners and focuses on the theme of listening.

This is such a key attribute for learning. A pupil who really listens actively, takes on advice and feedback and takes action on what they have heard, it genuinely does demonstrate the learner profile that makes such a difference in the classroom.

‘We listen and don’t interrupt’

It would be great if you could discuss this with your children at home and support the messages from our School Promise.

Stephanie Swims In The Midlands Regional Championships

Many, many congratulations to Stephanie who swam in the Midlands Regional Swimming Championships at The Alan Higgs Centre in Coventry, over the last two weekends. Stephanie, who trains with Rugby Swimming Club six days a week, swam in the 50m and 100m Backstroke. It will have taken Stephanie such a lot of hard work and dedicated training to achieve the qualifying times and just qualifying for the event is such a super achievement.

In the 50m Backstroke Stephanie finished in 23rd place out of 34 swimmers in a time of 38.70 seconds then in the 100m Backstroke Stephanie pulled herself up the field to finish in 13th place out of 31 swimmers in a time of 1.21.05 minutes.  

We are really proud of you Stephanie - what a fantastic effort!

Bablake & King Henry's Swimming Gala

Year 6 swimmers travelled to King Henry's School on Thursday 5 May for a long awaited and rescheduled gala against Eversfield, Balsall Common and Bablake King Henrys.  All the swimmers were very excited to get into the pool and represent Crescent and they did not disappoint with each student swimming their heart out whilst being encouraged and motivated by their team mates on the side lines.  

"Everybody swam exceptionally well, trying their hardest and doing the school proud. 
With Crescent finishing in 2nd place for the Year 6 competition. " 

Swim Captains Stephanie and Caspar 

Well done to all, you were a pleasure to be with and a credit to the school. 

Mrs McCollin and Mrs Webb 

Swimming Captain, Stephanie has written a full report:

On Thursday the 5th of May, 12 of the year six pupils took part in a swimming gala at KHB against: KHB, Balsall Common and Eversfield Preparatory School.

This gala required four boys and four girls from both year five and six. Unfortunately for us, our year five teams were away (having a brilliant time) on their residential, meaning we were two teams short when it came to overall points.

In the year six girls team we had Katherine, Sophie, Steph, and Harriet. Katherine and Harriet both swam brilliantly, coming close second in the backstroke and freestyle races. Sophie and Steph both won their races, Sophie in the breaststroke and Steph in the butterfly. All outstanding results for the year six girls team.

Our second Year 6 girls representatives pushed themselves to their limits to gain our team even more points, with another impressive result. They really gave it their all, with Liana swimming in the backstroke coming third in a very close heat, and Sophia, Evie and Eva all coming second in the Butterfly, Breaststroke and Freestyle races.

The year six boys races were also incredibly tight heats, showing the fantastic overall performance of the school. Ro swam very well in the Breaststroke, Caspar in the Butterfly both finishing in 2nd place with Sachin in the Freestyle and Faris in the Backstroke coming home home 3rd, all scoring valuable points for the team.

We started and ended the day with the best bit – relays! There is always such a good atmosphere and team spirit, as everyone cheers their teams on throughout. Crescent came second and third in these helping us to place second overall.

A big thank you to everyone who participated in this gala, all of our swimmers did Crescent School proud.

U8 Rounders v Crackley Hall

We had our first rounders match of the season with Crescent Year 3s taking on Crackley Hall. 

Crackley went in to bat first giving Crescent a chance to warm up their fielding skills. Some quick reactions in the field saw a number of Crackley players stumped out and made scoring hard, keeping their rounders to 2 1/2 after 30 balls. 

Crescent went in to bat with some fantastic energy seeing our score quickly move up to to 6 1/2 rounders with Ed, Herbie and Akaal gaining full rounders.  

In the 2nd innings Crackley managed to make more contact with the bat adding 4 rounders to their total and unfortunately Crescent couldn't quite make any of their hits count. 

Final score 6 1/2 - 6 1/2 draw. 

Player of the game Akaal.

U8 Cricket v Crackley Hall

Crescent mixed U8s cricket team started their season with a very dominant display away at Crackley Hall.

Batting first, Crescent reached the super total of 99-1, running and calling well, and hitting three boundaries in the process. Thanks to some very tight bowling and fielding, Crackley could only manage 69-1 in reply, leaving Crescent victors by 30 runs!

Special mentions go to Edward M and Lewis for their excellent bowling (both achieving the only maiden overs of the match) and to Shaylan and Max T for getting our innings off to a flying start with the bat.

Well done to the whole team!

Saira Makes Acting Debut

Year 5, Saira has made her acting debut in the much-anticipated blockbuster sequel, Heropanti 2, which is being screened in cinemas globally. It stars some of the biggest names in Bollywood.
