At Kneesall we participate in many sporting activities including basketball, tennis, football, dance, tag rugby, rounders, multi-skills, athletics, kwik cricket and swimming and take part in various festivals throughout the year.
We are a feeder school for both the Dukeries Academy and the Tuxford Academy and with other primary schools in the Families we have taken part in boccia, basketball, tag rugby, multi-skills, orienteering, netball, gymnastics, dance, cross country, tennis and rounders.
Body Rhythms is an annual dance festival for the Dukeries Family. We had a celebration day in the Summer term and the children who had performed at Body Rhythms took part in some dance workshops including ballet, zumba, cheerleading & gymnastics.
We have a wonderful dance teacher who is a retired prima ballerina. She has taught us all so much and enabled our dancers to perform to a very high standard. We were very honoured to be asked to perform a dance at the opening ceremony of the Sainsbury’s School Games in Nottingham – the first ever primary school to be asked!
In the Spring term KS1 go to Retford Gym Club with other primary schools of the Tuxford Family and they have a fantastic time. It gives the children the opportunity to participate in activities that they can’t normally do within our school setting.
Y5/6 children all completed a Play Maker award organised by The Sports Co-ordinator at Tuxford Academy. This means our pupils can now organise and lead sports clubs. This is a great way of developing their social and moral skills, learning to co-operate with others and developing a sense of right and wrong and fair play.
