This term

Welcome back!
 
I hope you have enjoyed a relaxing Easter break and are ready for an exciting term of learning.  I can’t wait to get started! 
 
During the summer term, we will be learning about the Anglo-Saxon settlers and will link to our English work on legends, narrative writing, and poetry. We will consider how to care for a dragon and prepare a “Dragonology” of information. In geography, we will look at features of settlements and where the Anglo-Saxons settled. 
 
How can we keep our teeth healthy? What should we feed a dragon? We will explore teeth and digestion in animals and replicate the digestive system along with an explanation guide. We will also link music and science through an exploration of sound. RE will focus on the Gospels and what we can learn from people of faith today. We will develop sculpting and sewing skills in the summer term in Art and DT lessons. 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 will continue to follow the National Curriculum and will including teaching place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, measurements, geometry and statistics. We will focus on problem solving and accuracy when calculating to strive to become Maths Masters in each area. Your continued support in helping children quickly and accurately recall times tables and number facts is very welcome. There are a number of good websites to practise times tables, including Hit the Button http://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

Welcome

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.
