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

Welcome to St. Leonard’s Church of England Primary School. We hope our website gives you a flavour of our vibrant, happy school and the achievements of our delightful children. We are a thriving church school in the picturesque village of Wigginton with a strong Christian ethos, growing in faith and learning. We passionately believe in developing the ‘whole child’ and ensure all children have the opportunity to reach their goals and shine in their own unique and wonderful way. Our kind, caring and dedicated team nurture, motivate and encourage our children to be confident and well-rounded members of their community. I am incredibly proud to be the Headteacher of St. Leonard’s, a place where children develop a passion for learning, feel good about themselves, are proud of their achievements and create lasting memories of friendship and connection in our school family. I warmly invite you to come and visit us at St. Leonard’s Mrs Kirsty Cullen, Headteacher.

This week including Family worship

Robins have been retelling the story of the Pig in the Pond this week. Some of our writing work is now on display in the classroom. Our PSED work has focused on friends and responding to the feelings of others, including talking about when we need to say sorry. Maths this week has been about counting and being able to say the number that is one more or less, through the use of number rhymes and songs. We have been helping Neligan the Farmer to count the animals in his fields. The children are really enjoying their indoor and outdoor roleplay areas - café and farm shop. 


In Kingfishers, we have been busy writing out our own version of 'The Rainbow Bird' and we are
now getting ready to edit and improve them. In maths, Year 1 have been looking at adding and subtracting using a 100 square and Year 2 have been calculating using all four operations. We have begun our new Science topic on Plants and our art work has been focused on landscapes by Monet. 


In Maths, Owls have been interpreting bar charts and creating some of our own. In RE we have been learning about the creation story through guided visualisation. In English, we have been planning and writing a persuasive letter. The children are getting excited about their forthcoming trip to the Natural History Museum on Friday 18th May. We have also started to learn our songs for the ‘Big Sing’ concert. 


Kestrels have been creating their own Greek myth comic strips based on the story of Arachne and Athene using an app on the iPads. In Maths we have started our statistics work, focusing on retrieving information from graphs, charts and tables. In Re we have started a new unit on the ‘Bible’ this week. In topic the children produced some incredible home learning for their project on Ancient Greece which is on display in the classroom. 


Children in Falcons have been completing their own stories. In RE, the children have been looking at different international versions of the Lord’s Prayer and each child has written their own modern version. Lots of revision has taken place and the children are all working exceptionally hard and we are very proud of them all. Falcons and Kestrels have also been lucky to have Mrs Buckley who has been teaching them different Latin American dances.
