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 had great fun making cress heads this week. Robins had a visit from the Police and they asked some excellent questions. Thank you to Mrs Wildes for arranging such a great experience. We have an exciting new hospital role play area. The reading ladder is proving popular with the children and more children are earning a treat for reading 5 times a week.


In Maths, Kingfishers have been looking at measures, in particular, capacity, mass and temperature. English, has been focused on our new topic of Minibeasts and we have been exploring our new text linked to this. We have had lots of fun learning a Salsa dance all about the World Cup.


Owls have been learning about safety. In ICT they have started their stop motion videos linked to the class text which we will hope to complete in the next week. They wrote a prediction and blurb in English. In RE, they have started their new topic on Sikhism. In Maths they have been learning about how to find area and have been undertaking investigations linked to this.


In Maths, Kestrels have been using a protractor to measure angles. They have started their new topic in Science - sound. PE has focused on tennis skills this week and in RE they have been learning about Sikhism. In English the children have done some excellent persuasive writing, persuading people to visit Greece. Y5 children had a wonderful day at Open Door on Tuesday at St Editha's Church enjoying a range of activities. We were also lucky to go over to Rawlett to bake delicious brownies.


This week the children in Falcons have written thank you letters to Standon Bowers and non-chronological reports on healthy lifestyles in Science and of course, the play rehearsals have begun.
