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

It has been a busy 2 weeks in school:



Robins have had a fabulous couple of weeks settling into their new class. They have been working hard to develop their phonics skills, listening carefully to different sounds or phonemes. The children have enjoyed counting and are developing their number recognition. This week has been really exciting as they have met their Buddies for the year. They are all really happy with their new Buddy and I am sure they will all have a fabulous year together. 



Topic - we walked around Wigginton and used our maps to find the different points of interest.

English - writing descriptions of our bog babies and their homes.

Maths - using part-whole models for partitioning.

Science - we started our Materials theme by labelling items around school and describing them.

RE - we made stick puppets for role play after hearing the parable of the Lost Son.



In Owls we have been learning to find 10, 100 and 1000 more or less than any given number. In English, we have written a diary entry as if we were Howard Carter. Our science topic this half term is all about electricity. We have looked at how electricity is generated and how we can use it safely. In topic, we have looked at a range of Egyptian artefacts.



Falcons have had a very busy and exciting couple of weeks. As their parents are aware, they have all started learning to play either the trombone or the cornet - I’m sure the children are loving it! They have also now been given a buddy and I’m sure they will all be excellent role models for their little ones. In our learning the children have worked really hard to make a children’s TV programme all about ‘Light’ which they will be presenting to Kingfishers.
