A warm welcome to all families of children entering their first days of school at Leighfield in September 2016. We hope you will enjoy visiting this page to follow the progress of the children starting their learning journey at Leighfield Academy this year.   A  selection of the children's work and activities will be presented together with photographs of class displays.   It is also worthwhile visiting the Gallery and other sections of  our website.  Follow the link at the bottom of this page to read Mrs Donnaloia's Newsletter and Topic Web.

We had a super visit from 'Bugtopia' who brought along some memorable examples of not so 'mini' beasts which the children had the opportunity to handle.  Follow the link below to see a fabulous photo montage of our crawly visitors!

Forget Britain's Got Talent...our Reception class children have DEFINITELY got talent!  Singing, dancing, joke telling, custard pie was all on show at the Reception's Got Talent show held on 7th April.  Parents and friends thoroughly enjoyed a delightful hour of entertainment and Mrs. Stephenson had the tricky job of judging.  Follow the link at the bottom of this page to see a photo montage of our 'budding stars'.

Reception children joined in with Key Stage 1 to present our annual Spring Assembly to a packed hall of KS2 children, friends and family.  It was a lovely start to the build up of our spring term holiday ....we're all heading off to fly our kites!  Read a full report and photographs of the event by following the link at the bottom of this page.

Reception made ‘Mr Wolf’s pancakes’ on Wednesday 1st March. We made French and American types and tasted them to say how they were different! We even made some for Mrs Sedgwick and Mrs Allison – yum! Get a flavour of the fun - check out the Gallery opposite!

26th January 2017 - We learned about the Chinese New Year and made a fierce dragon!  We performed a dragon dance in PE - take a look in the photo gallery opposite- it was great fun!  

Everyone enjoyed our Stay and Play morning on 15th December 2016 - take a look at the photo-montage by following the link at the bottom of the page.
