The annual Carols by Candlelight was a magical evening held by School and Village Community.  There wasn't a dry eye in chirch as the Foundation Children presented the tableaux.  Villagers read the readings and the children told the Christmas story.  The singing as always was beautiful and a great start to the Christmas festivities.

Since September every child from Foundation to Year 6, by class, have been having swimming lessons on Wednesday afternoons at the Dukeries Academy.  Great fun was had splashing Mrs Hemsley and Mrs Whitchurch and all worked to improve their swimming skills and lifesaving knowledge.  The Key Stage 2 children will be able to show off their skills at the 3KANDO Swimming Gala in the Summer Term.

Kneesall School Choir got into the Christmas spirit by Singing Christmas songs and Carols for the visitors at Center Parcs.  the fairy lights sparkled and visitor cheered and a jolly time was had by all.

On Thursday 21st January a very excited group of children set off from school to take part in the 20th Anniverssay Young Coives Concert held at the Sheffield Motorpoint Arena.  After weeks of practising the words and dance moves, they spent the afternoon in rehearsals with the other schools, ecen Mrs Coupe was able to keep up with the children!  A sea of 5000 childrne sang and danced their hearts out supporting other acts.  The children were able to feel like popstars performing for the htousands of parents in the audience.  What a fantastic experience!!

On Monday 25th January 2016, Class 3 visited The Holocaust Centre, in Laxton, as part of our RE work. We learnt all about how horrendous life would have been for the Jews living in Germany and surrounding occupied countries. Also, it was a great honour to have an opportunity to meet and talk to a real survivor of the Holocaust. It was a very moving, thought provoking experience! Class 3 continued this work by writing poems, prayers, diary entries and letters back in school. This culminated in them writing questions for prominent people, who would have experienced or controlled the Holocaust, with the children role playing and hot seating as the characters. 

Class 2 thoroughly enjoyed their special day as a time travelling pilgrim at the Southwell Minster.

We viewed the beautiful copes worn by the clergy and made prayer beads to support our own prayers. We learned about the ornate windows and searched for gargoyles and carvings in the Chapter House.

What a great day!
