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.


Welcome to the Wrens Class Page!


Welcome to our class page.  Our EYFS is lead by Miss Preece.


Wrens is our new Nursery class and they have 2 members of staff to support them in their learning.  These are Mrs Juxon and Mrs Jones.  Wrens will continue to work alongside Robins and have plenty of opportunity to work with the other children.


This half term we are learning through the topic 'All About Me'.  During this topic, we will look at a range of different texts, fiction and non-fiction.  This is a wonderful topic for the children to introduce themselves to others in the class as well as for us to get to know the children.   The children will learn through a range of activities, developing their skills in all areas, making learning fun and purposeful.



This term our main focus is phonics, supporting the children in hearing different sounds.  Our children will start at Phase 1, where they focus on what they can hear as well oral segmenting and blending.  


Please support your child with this at home, encouraging them to hear different sounds in the natural environment as well as whether they can identify words that you segment, e.g. c-a-t, the child would blend these to say cat. 




Our PE sessions this half term are on a Monday afternoon, but the children are presented with lots of opportunities to develop their moving and handling skill on a daily basis.  Please ensure that the children come dressed in their PE kits on a Monday, so that they are ready to participate in the activities.




This term we are focusing on 'What makes every person special?'. 





Nursery children will not be having reading books but we ask that you continue to share stories with them at home so they continue developing a love of books. 





Children within Nursery will have a continuous provision which will have ample opportunities for children to explore number, shape, space and measure. We will encourage them to investigate and develop their language skills throughout their time in school, challenging them to think more independently and apply their own ideas. They will also have maths sessions where a focused aim is set, so they can then practise these skills at their leisure within the provision.


This half term we are looking at number, developing counting skills and number recognition. 



Kind regards
