Space Oddity

Published on Monday 1 June 2020 by Crook Primary.

With the first successful launch of Space X, we have this week put together a rendition of David Bowie's Space Oddity. This was inspired by the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey, which was in turn based on a short story by Arthur C. Clarke. There are many examples of literature, music and the arts influencing science and technology - can you or your family think of any?

Wow, what fantastic singing Sarah! I really love the expression you use when singing, it makes the words much more powerful.

    This Week's Song

    Published on Tuesday 19 May 2020 by Crook Primary.

    This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and especially at this time it is really important to help and support each other. Many of us are struggling with the effects of the Coronavirus and especially missing family and friends. This song, released by The Beatles in 1965 is all about asking for help from those close to you.

    We are all looking out for each other - remember to take care of yourselves too.

    Take care,

    Mrs Hunter

    This Week's Song

    Published on Monday 11 May 2020 by Crook Primary.

    This Saturday was supposed to be the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. Sadly it has been cancelled, but I thought I would look back at the last time the UK won. It was in 1997 and the song was Love Shine A Light by Katrina and the Waves. This week, we have added in some harmony. This is where two people sing different notes at the same time, but the compliment each other!

    Thank you for all the videos you are sending through - they are really brilliant!

          We'll Meet Again

          Published on Monday 4 May 2020 by Crook Primary.

          With it being the 75 anniversary of Victory in Europe day on Friday it would be great to see some versions of this. The song has been released to help support the NHS and features the original forces sweetheart, Dame Vera Lynn.

          I am really enjoying the videos that are being sent in - look out for them on the website over the next few days!
