Two of our Kniveton residents, Janet Rose and Janka Housley, thought it would be nice to commemorate the Coronation of King Charles by giving something to each of the children of Kniveton Primary School and also to the other children in the Kniveton Parish up to age 16. All of the children have received the gift of a commemorative mug.
They were able to achieve this initiative by very kind and generous donations obtained locally. The cash donations came from: Janet Rose (personally), Lester Lowe Ltd, the Kniveton BBQ committee, Kniveton News and the Village Hall.
Here are some of our learning super stars who received the mugs in church this morning. We all feel so lucky to be part of such a caring community. Thank you everyone. It's a wonderful gesture and really appreciated by our school. ... See MoreSee Less
Class 2 have had such a fun Science lesson exploring how mirrors reflect light😊
They had a number of challenges: reading hidden words under tables (using only mirrors and not looking underneath), reading words behind ourselves using mirrors and sending each other secret mirror messages! ... See MoreSee Less

We loved learning more about coding today, using a timer to run a block of commands after a timed delay. The magician’s rabbit disappeared, then reappeared 5 seconds later, thanks to these very smart coders ! ... See MoreSee Less
Class 3 have really enjoyed exploring the ‘Factors and multiples’ game this afternoon.
They persevered in making their chains as long as possible with one pair making an impressive chain of 51!
We have registered to become a Problem- Solving school, which is an exciting new initiative to help schools raise the profile of problem solving and nurture better problem-solvers; we are therefore looking forward to more opportunities to explore activities like this one.
We are working very hard in Class 2 to improve our fluency and accuracy when reading.
As part of our English work, we have been looking at ‘How to wash a woolly mammoth’ and can now read it beautifully with excellent pace, intonation and expression. Our writing purpose this term is writing to inform and we are now going to use this text as a basis for writing our own instructions.
A big thank you to Friends of Kniveton who recently paid for our visualiser (this means we can read lots of books together!) ... See MoreSee Less
