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.

In Robins the children are working hard on their new topic based around Winter, Snow and Ice. We have been learning about different animals in the Arctic and their characteristics. In Reception the children have started their super sentences and are really starting to apply their phonic knowledge well.


Kingfishers children used clues from the mystery sack to write a prediction about our new class text in English. We worked with a partner to edit and re-write these. In maths we have been comparing and ordering numbers using > < =. In science our new topic Materials has begun and we have hunted for different materials around school. In RE we have looked at how people talk to God.  


In Owls we have started our new topic - Water everywhere. We have started to read our exciting new book the Water Horse and written predictions about what the mystery egg might contain. In science we have planned an experiment to look at the best conditions to grow cress. In RE we have been learning about the trinity and how it is represented in religious art.


Kestrels have completed their area topic and have now begun work on multiplication using formal methods as well as applying their skills to multi-step problems. In English and topic we have launched our Africa theme when Sunny the Meerkat was posted to us with his book Meerkat Mail. We have been developing our use of inverted commas for direct speech and will be applying our skills to write newspaper reports. In RE children experienced a meditation session based on the creation. 


Pupils in Falcons have been finishing their reports about rainforests and presenting them to the class. In Maths they have been dividing fractions. In PE, children were taught Volleyball by Mrs Wall - a teacher from Rawlett. In PSHE the children have been demonstrating responsibility and each group has prepared a short teaching session and activity for every class in the school. Their ideas and hard work have been amazing. Thanks to Mrs Hateley for organising such a great experience for the children.
