Welcome back!
We hope you have had a brilliant Summer holiday and are raring to go with our exciting new topic: Dinosaurs!
After discovering a Dinosaur egg in our outdoor classroom, and witnessing CCTV of a T-Rex stomping through the school grounds, we are sure to be in for a half term of excitement! Through our topic, we will learn to ask big questions about Dinosaurs and the world around us, like 'What happened to the dinosaurs?' and 'What would it be like if Dinosaurs were around today?'. We will learn about many different types of dinosaurs including what they eat, where they lived and their names - and hopefully how to spell them too!
Class One will also be learning about simple animal life cycles of animals in our Science lessons, as well as thinking about ways to protect our Earth and keep ourselves healthy so we don't end up extinct like the dinosaurs did! 
In Maths we will be mastering Place Value over the term, as well as learning ways to use this to add and subtract. 
Our RE learning this half term will be building towards our celebration of Harvest, gaining a deep understanding of how both Christian and Jewish people celebrate and give thanks for the crops God helps us to grow.
It will be an exciting start to the new year and we welcome parent helpers into class to get stuck in too!

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.
