What an action-packed three days Year 5 had at Hindleap Warren!

From archery to team building and even the high ropes, the children faced so many fears - we couldn’t have been prouder! A particular highlight of the trip was definitely The Forest Adventure. River walking and mud diving will be a memory that lasts a long time!

The fun did not stop at the end of the day. We all enjoyed our trip into the forest for our night walk where we listened to the local wildlife and inspected the spooky-looking Witch’s Tree. On the second evening, the children made a splash at the swimming pool, which was followed by some hot chocolate and biscuits. While we have only just caught up on sleep, it was definitely a trip to remember.

The children represented all of the Knaphill values brilliantly. Well done, Year 5!
This week, the Year 6 children have shown resilience, determination and confidence when completing their SATs exams - we have been incredibly proud of all the children! Each morning of the assessments began with a year group breakfast in the hall; this was a lovely, calm way to settle any nerves and to build camaraderie between peers.

Our week culminated with a celebratory fun-filled Friday: the much-anticipated reveal of our Year 6 Summer Production (Rock Bottom) and an afternoon of fun and games on the field. Our day was topped off with an exciting delivery of freshly cooked Milano pizzas - a huge thank you to our wonderful PTA for funding this treat.
A big thank you to our wonderful PTA for organising a fantastic Easter Egg hunt with the Easter bunny for all of our children, as well as a fun-filled evening at the school disco last week! 💕 What a fantastic way to end our Spring Term.

Everyone at the Knaphill Federation of Schools would like to wish our whole community a restful and safe Easter holidays. 🐣 🐰

We look forward to seeing you all in the Summer Term!
On Wednesday, Year 6 were thrown back into the 19th Century and enjoyed the rigors of a Victorian education. They were subject to a range of activities: arithmetic; cursive handwriting with slate and chalk; woodwork or needlework; and drills. A traditional Victorian play time entailed skipping, hula hoops and tug of war. The children became fully immersed in this experience and enjoyed playing the part of a down-trodden Victorian pupil, but they all agreed that they are glad to be children in the 21st Century!
Thank you 🙏 to all those who came to our garden working party morning 🐝 🌸 ☀️ 😃 the lower school growing areas, pond and bug hotels are looking fantastic!
What a week we had at Stone Farm! It was a time of firsts for many of us where each day brought something new, something exciting and something special for us all. Whether it was caring for and cuddling the animals, visiting the aquarium and The Eden Project, or just spending time with each other around the beautiful farm, the children embraced it all and made many memories. Every adult who worked with our school commented on how polite, enthusiastic and fun-loving our children were and we couldn't have been more proud. Here are some photos of our time there.
On Tuesday, 9 members of Year 6 went to St Bede's Secondary School in Redhill to compete with schools across Surrey. In an action-packed day, our team played six other schools in the group stages. We beat five teams and drew with one other which meant that we qualified for the semi finals.

In the semis, Knaphill lost in a very close game, but then won in the runner-up match to come third and win a bronze medal.

All children in the Knaphill squad acted with respect and courtesy to other schools and referees and showed fortitude, energy and excellent teamwork throughout. Their every action made the school proud.
Knaphill School have had a fantastic week becoming Science Boffins to celebrate British Science Week and this year’s theme of ‘Growth’.

It has been lovely to see the children engage and participate in every activity, particularly the Science Google Classroom where children have had fun guessing their teachers from their baby photos and designing the World of 2122 as they imagine it might look. Lots of children are also taking part in the Virtual Science Fair and we are excited to see updates on the Classroom stream as they come in! On Wednesday, we were visited by Boffin John, who captivated the children with his engaging and, most importantly, fun displays. As promised, the day ended with a bang: the children were lucky enough to witness a Rocket Launch! We weren't put off by the rain, however the wind did blow our rocket a little off course which created lots of excitement amongst the children and adults!
Yesterday was a magical day at Knaphill School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!

Upon entering through Platform 9 and 3/4, the children were summoned to the Great Hall for their very first Sorting Hat Ceremony! The Sorting Hat truly came to life and the children (and some adults!) were bestowed their House Team. Meanwhile, unbeknown to the children, Hedwig and his friends were enroute.
The children thoroughly enjoyed meeting the owls and were blown away by the swooping and soaring of Tango, Whisper and Murphy - the naughty eagle owl. We all certainly learnt a lot about owls and a valuable lesson about how we can respect our wildlife. A real highlight had to be the individual photoshoots with Whisper, the barn owl! It was a real hoot! 🦉

As if the owl experience wasn’t thrilling enough, the children took part in an array of magical lessons: The History of Magic Class, Potions Class, Quidditch and Transfiguration (crafting).
After an exhausting day of enchanting experiences, the children relaxed with a warming glass of Butterbeer. Some even commented that it was better than the real thing!

We would love to know what your child’s favourite part of the day was in the comments below.
The nursery children loved meeting Police Officer Georgie last week. They learnt all about her role as a police officer and enjoyed trying on her hat, jackets and shield.
Something exciting has arrived at the Junior School playground this morning!

Yesterday, children at the Lower School had the opportunity to test their courage on a climbing wall - don't worry, it was a little smaller than this one! 😀

Over the course of the next two days, it is the turn of the Junior School children - will they have the nerve to make it to the top? It was a delight to see the children's reactions to the climbing wall as they entered the playground first thing this morning! 😮😁

Bring on the wall!
On Sunday, a team of staff, parents and pupils took part in the Surrey Half Marathon event! Children ran in the 2km children’s race and Miss Concannon, Mrs Trice, Mrs Evans, Miss Rose and Mrs Quinton ran in the 5km event. A huge congratulations to everyone who took part! Thank you to the Knaphill School PTA for organising and helping us to raise over £1,600 for our schools! If you would like to sponsor our team, it isn't too late!

Last week, Year 5 had a fantastic day out at World Games Day. A huge thank you to all at Winston Churchill School for inviting us and for hosting such a brilliant event. Our children thoroughly enjoyed the variety of sporting activities on offer, which were all led by pupils at Winston. It was also wonderful to see old Knaphill faces! Thank you!

Wow - what a phenomenal Sports Day! From start to finish, all children were actively involved in a variety of fun-filled sporting activities. We were beyond proud of their sportsmanship and how they all reflected our Knaphill School values. It was amazing to see so many of our Knaphill community coming to support our children.

Photos to follow soon!

On Tuesday, our Year 5 children met their Year 2 buddies and went on a treasure hunt around the Junior School! They had a fabulous time and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know each other.

It was fantastic to see them reunited yesterday for our children’s move-up day.


Good Luck to our Year 6 children over the next two days as they visit their secondary schools. We know you will be great and we can’t wait to hear all about it on Thursday!

The Junior School had the unique experience of participating in a Bounce Fitness workshop on Thursday. The children (and some staff!) had a fantastic time during their workshops; it was wonderful to see the huge smiles on their faces throughout the day.

It has been quite the week for our Year 5 children!

On Monday, we met with the Year 2 children from the Lower School and taught them some playground games, ready for their move to the Junior School; yesterday we watched the amazing show of SIX the Musical at Winston and on Tuesday we had Ancient Greek Day!

On this day, we travelled back in time to Ancient Greece and participated in a variety of exciting activities. We played an Ancient Greek strategy game, solved a stomachian puzzle and took part in an interesting quiz. To top this all off, the children learnt about Greek armour and weaponry, took part in a theatrical performance and participated in an Athens Vs Sparta Olympic Games - it was very tense and exhilarating! It was a nail biting finale and, with only one mark in it, Athens took the glory!

We were extremely impressed with the children’s incredible Ancient Greek costumes! Well done, Year 5!


Our Year 5 children and adults were blown away today watching Winston Churchill’s School Production of SIX the Musical.

It was a truly magical performance filled with incredible singing; professional acting skills; wonderful choreography and phenomenal musicians. Seeing some of our former Knaphill students up on the stage made us unbelievably proud - what amazing talent!

We must not forget all the children and adults backstage and behind the scenes, who must have worked so hard to put together such a polished and professional performance.

Thank you so much Winston Churchill School for inviting us!

And the winners of the Knaphill Inter-House Football Tournament are...Year 5 & 6 FARAH!

A fantastic week of nail-biting matches and exhilarating penalty shoot-outs culminated in the grand-final between Year 5 & 6 Farah and Rowling today. Thank you and well done to all the Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 children who participated in the matches, our fantastic Knaphill cheer squad and, of course, our Sports Leads who make these tournaments possible. What a brilliant week of sportsmanship.

Please see our newsletter on Friday to read match reports written by some of our Sports Leads!

Last week, Year 6 ran an extremely successful Apprentice. After being given a small business loan from the school, each group bought and made products to sell on their stall. There was a brilliant turn out from Year 6 families as well as lots of support from all the staff and children at the school. We are so proud of the children's achievements today and are SO pleased to share that we have raised enough money to pay for every child in Year 6 to have a leavers' hoodie and to pay for the Year 6 BBQ. We certainly have some fantastic entrepreneurs in our school!

Last Friday, our amazing Girls’ Football team went to face the other group winners in the overall finals. They were incredible. Despite some less than favourable results, they showed true determination and spirit to keep battling until the end. We are immensely proud of them and of the parents who have supported us tirelessly through our vast improvements during this school year’s fixtures. Our support was the envy of the tournament.


Knaphill Girls Year 5/6 - League Winners!

On Thursday, our Year 5 & 6 Girls’ team headed to Hermitage for a play-off match to decide who would be League Winners and reach the League Champion Finals. The girls suffered an early setback, conceding two quick goals, but showed resilience to pull the match level. Despite this, they fell behind twice more, levelling each time. In the last few minutes, they showed true grit and desire to pull ahead and then scored a late free kick to put the game out of reach, in what was an incredibly enthralling match. The final score was 6-4 to Knaphill, who have now progressed to the Champion Finals this Friday.

Well done girls—a truly amazing performance.

Year 6 have been engaging in politics and democracy over the last couple of weeks by forming their own political parties. Each class was given the opportunity to spend £30 on something that would benefit the children. The boys and girls of Year 6 campaigned for votes from parents and the party in each class that won the most votes would have their chosen investment bought. Children wrote speeches, slogans and leaflets whilst engaging the electorate in debate and discussion. Thank you to all the parents and families who supported the children throughout their campaigns and who voted for our three class winners: Reading Revolution from 6A; The Class of Calm from 6S; and AKSH from 6H. Well done, Year 6!

At Knaphill Junior School, we will be holding our very own Knaphill School Royal Variety Performance, as part of our Coronation celebrations. In order for our Royal Variety inspired show to take place, we are inviting children from Years 3 to 6 to audition, where some will be selected to perform in front of the rest of the school. The final performances will be taking place during the school day on Friday 5th May.

This is a wonderful opportunity for our children to show off their incredible talents and skills with the rest of the school. We look forward to seeing a variety of unique and interesting talents during the audition process: singers, dancers, comedy acts and magicians, are just some examples. Children may wish to audition as solo acts, or some may wish to duet or be part of a group performance.

The auditions will take place in the week commencing 17th April, during the school day. If your child would like to audition, please complete the Google Form to enable us to establish an audition timetable.

Please could the form be completed by Friday 31st March.

On our World Book Day, the children poured through the gates in a variety of incredible book related costumes. To kick off the day with a BANG, children’s author Nick Arnold amazed us with his science experiments and life stories on how he became the author of the Horrible Science series. After lunch, the children excitedly awaited the news of who would win our Book Day costume certificates. The whole school enjoyed taking part in a variety of Book Day activities to celebrate our love of books, including their Paired Reading session. It was truly wonderful to see children across the Year Groups sharing their favourite stories with each other.

Wow - what a week we had at Knaphill School to celebrate our World Book Week 2023!

Upon entering into the sweet delights of W***y Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, the children found themselves transported into a world of pure imagination. Each child was the eager recipient of a very special W***y Wonka envelope, as they took their seats inside the Chocolate Factory. The air was buzzing with excitement as the lucky few winners of the Golden Tickets were revealed. Mr W***y Wonka proudly awarded them with their prizes.

After leaving the Chocolate Factory, the children were summoned by Miss Trunchbull to complete a rigorous morning fitness regime. Once fully warmed up, the children took part in an array of Roald Dahl themed activities: crafting dreamcatchers to capture the BFG’s dreams; concocting potions and experiments with George and his marvellous medicine; creating their very own flavour of chocolate bar at W***y Wonka’s Chocolate Factory and performing poetry to bring Roald Dahl’s poems to life!

Keep an eye out for more photos during the week.

Year 6 had a fantastic time on their residential trip to Stone Farm. Living on a working farm in Devon for four days, the children were involved in all the day-day jobs: feeding the geese; feeding the kune kune pigs (Salt and Pepper); cleaning out the other pigs; milking the almost realistic cow (Daisy); giving the rabbits lots of cuddles; and taking the Guinea pigs out for exercise. Whilst at the farm, they took day trips out to the Eden project and Plymouth Aquarium, saw a falconry show, puzzled their way through a hay maze and even sang songs around the camp fire. The whole experience has been amazing—something that they will cherish forever.

For Children’s Mental Health and Well-Being Week, our Junior School children connected with people in our local community: Year 3 connected with the Year 3 children at Goldsworth Primary School by writing letters and becoming pen pals; Year 4 children connected with a local care home, sharing postcards they had made as well as flowers; Year 5 children connected with our very own Reception children, reading their own interactive story books to the children based on well-known fairy tales, but with a twist and Year 6 connected with the children at Trinity Pre-School, sharing their own picture books, reassuring the younger children about how much fun they will have starting school.

All of our children thoroughly enjoyed making connections with our local community and we received delightful comments back about how well our children represented Knaphill School. We continue to strive to be at the heart of our community and we look forward to continuing to make these wonderful connections and memories for our children.
