This term

Welcome back!

I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and New Year break and are ready for an exciting term of learning. I can’t wait to get started!

During the Spring Term, we will focus on the Ancient Egyptians and their achievements. This will link to our English work on story writing, instructional writing and information text. Science will focus on states of matter and children will explore solids, liquids and gases through a series of experiments to enhance their investigative skills. Geography will focus on locating countries of the world and identifying physical and human geography features linked to Egyptians. We will reflect upon Hinduism, the Christian Bible and the meaning of Easter in RE. Through reading comprehension activities, we will focus on inference and deduction skills. Children will continue to develop their vocabulary, understanding of grammar and accuracy when spelling, including words on the National Curriculum year 3/ 4 spelling list.  

Maths lessons will follow the National Curriculum, and will focus on measures and fractions. There will be an emphasis on problem solving and accuracy of calculations to ensure children become Maths Masters in each area. Support in helping children quickly recall times tables and number facts is very welcome. By the end of Year 3, children should be able to quickly and accurately recall the multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 times tables (having learnt the 2, 5 and 10 times tables in Year 2), and up to 12 times tables by the end of Year 4.

It's going to be another exciting and fun filled term!

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.
