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.

This week including Family worship

Robins have been by planting cress seeds and tasting different fruit / vegetables. In English they have produced full sentences and in Maths they have been looking at the names of shapes. They have also had a visitor who taught them all about what it is like to be blind. Our new outdoor construction and music areas have opened this week and enjoyed by all. 


This week Kingfishers have been finishing off their topic on Explorers and writing their own poetry using Spike Milligan for inspiration. Next week they will begin their new topic of Minibeasts using an exciting book as the basis for their learning. In Maths they are busy exploring capacity and mass in practical ways. 


Owls have been learning about capacity and reading different scales. In English they have looked at the features of a play script and have begun planning their own. In computing lessons, they have started to plan their own stop motion animations which have been a lot of fun. In Art, they have created their own colour wheels by mixing colours.


Kestrels have been converting metric units in Maths this week and have enjoyed learning about this undertaking practical Maths. In English, the children have been writing a recount of their fantastic Greek Day. In DT children have been painting their Greek vases. The new science topic ‘Electricity’ is proving to be a favourite and children have been building circuits.


It has been quiet here at school as Falcons have been having a brilliant time at Standon Bowers undertaking a range of exciting activities including caving, kayaking, orienteering, high ropes and lots of team work and games.
