Growing In Faith and Learning

'Growing in Faith and Learning' 'Life in all it's fullness' John 10:10

Welcome to St Leonard's CofE Primary School

I am delighted to welcome you to our website. I am proud to be the Headteacher at St. Leonard’s CofE Primary & Nursery School. We are located in the beautiful village of Wigginton and have a very strong community who are keen to support our school. Our strong Christian ethos underpins everything we do and everyone associated with our school is committed to helping our children ‘Grow in Faith and Learning’. Catherine Young- Headteacher.


Home Learning

This year we will be asking the children to complete home learning. Every Friday, the children will be set 1 piece of maths and 1 piece of english home learning in their CPG books. The home learning set will link to the work that they have been covering in school. The children will need to bring in their CPG books on the following Wednesday to be marked.


Welcome to Kingfishers!


Kingfishers is a Key Stage One class with Year 2 children, taught by  Mr Postlethwaite, Mrs Green and Mrs Jones. Together, we strive to provide the best possible learning and nurturing experiences for the children in our class.



This half term, our new topic is 'Castles'. We have so many wonderful activities planned for you!


Reading Diaries

Please encourage your child to read often and discuss, predict and question your child's understanding of the text. Please ensure you have signed your child's reading diary and remind them to bring reading books and diaries to school every Monday and Friday, when they will be changed. The children will bring home a colour banded book and also a phonics book linked to their phonics in school.


Times Tables

Year Two should have received their log in details for TT Rock Stars to help them practise their times tables. The children will have a times table test every Tuesday.                                                                                                                                  



Spelling tests will take place every Tuesday. A list of the spellings your child needs to learn has already been sent home. As it's an individual programme, children will move onto the next list in their own time, when they have got the spellings all correct. If they have got all of their spellings correct, we will move them on to the next set and we'll indicate this in their spelling book. If they have any wrong, please continue to learn that set and we'll retest them the following week.



PE for this term will be on Mondays and Fridays.  Please send your child into school in their outdoor PE kit on this day. Also please make sure that jewellery is removed and long hair is tied back. Thank you.


Water Bottles

Children should have a water bottle in school each day please.


Healthy Snacks

Free fruit is available for morning break. You may provide your child with additional healthy snacks (no crisps, sweets, biscuits or nuts please).


Free School Meals

Please remember that your child is entitled to a free school dinner up until the end of Key Stage 1.
