Reading Homework
Children will bring home a reading book and reading record, along with a green homework book. Inside the reading record is a list of all the books available on your child's book band. Children will not be expected to read all of the books before moving up book bands, however we do expect that children complete the suggested homework activity for each book, before we swap their book with them. When a child has completed their homework and reading book, they should return their reading record, book and homework book into the homework tray.

In Class One, children will be tested weekly on Rocket word cards (these are the common exception (tricky) words from the Year One National Curriculum) or Star word cards (these are the common exception words from the Year Two curriculum.)

Children will be tested once a week on their card. We ask that they bring this card with their spelling book into school every day, in case the day of their group’s test should change.

When they get full marks, their card will be swapped to the next set of spellings.

If they do not get full marks, they will keep the card for another week in hope that all of the spelling words will be fully embedded and not forgotten.

Please do not worry if your child is on a different card to their friends. This is a personalised method of spelling testing that we hope will suit every child.

Every now and again there will be spelling reviews where all of the tricky words from their year group will be tested to see if words from previous weeks are remembered.

When all the Common Exception word cards have been completed they will receive cards with the National Curriculum spelling rules for their year group (Planet word cards).

If you have any questions, please come and see us.

Year 2 Maths Homework
In Year Two, children will begin to be tested on their two, five and ten times tables. Please practise developing your children's quick recall of these at home. Year Twos will also be given occasional Maths homework that will consolidate or revisit learning from the Maths topic that week. This should be completed as regularly as possible to help support your child's understanding. If you have any questions regarding this homework, please speak to Miss Bennett.

Mrs-S-Ilett-Coupe-Head-TeacherWelcome to Kneesall Church of England Primary School! We are a small, rural Church school where every pupil knows how valued they are and all are encouraged to reach their full potential. We provide a secure, yet stimulating learning environment that enables pupils to be inspired and enthused. Our staff lead by example and our Christian ethos is evident in everything we do. We encourage our pupils to care for each other, for their community and for the world in which they live. Their spiritual, moral, cultural and social development is as important to us as their academic attainment.

Kneesall School has served our village for more than 150 years and is an important part of our local community, as well as the wider community. We take an active part in village life through our strong links with our church and the local villages.

Our beautiful school grounds provide plenty of opportunities for environmental studies, structured playtimes, development of expressive arts and areas for reflection. The outdoor equipment and playing field are a real asset to school and pupils are encouraged to develop their physical abilities.

We provide a rich and meaningful curriculum which sets out to educate the ‘whole’ child and creates opportunities for each and every one to experience success.

We know how important it is to have strong links between home and school in order for good learning partnerships to be forged and we greatly value these partnerships.

We would love you to come and visit us so that you can find out more about our school, our values and the special place that is Kneesall C of E Primary School.  All of our information is on the website but if you would prefer paper copies they are available from the Office.
