A school has had its library renovated ‘to encourage children to read for pleasure’.
Leighfield Primary School in Uppingham has undergone huge changes to its ‘dated’ library to make it a more comfortable and enjoyable place for the pupils.
The room, which used to only contain non-fiction, now includes a broad range of fictional books.
Many of the books were donated by parents from an Amazon wish list created by the school.
Inside the library there are bean bags, ‘comfy chairs’ and blankets to show the children that reading can be fun and relaxing.

Christmas Celebrations 2019
Christmas Celebration Letter for Parents
Christmas in Uppingham Once again, we have been invited as a school to join in the late-night shopping event in Uppingham on Thursday 5th December. We will be singing carols by the Christmas tree at 5.45pm. A number of staff will be waiting in the market place from 5.30pm. As we won’t be singing for long, please ensure you wait with your child/children. It would be great to see as many children as possible at the evening.
Carol Service On Thursday 12th December we will be holding our annual Carol Service at St Peter and St Paul’s church in Uppingham from 6pm. All the classes will be taking part in this celebration and we would love to see as many children and families as possible. The children will need to wear their school uniform and be at the church just before 6pm. Children will sit in their class groups at the church.
Christmas Decorations Day Friday 13th December is Christmas decorations day and Christmas Jumper Day at Leighfield. As usual, all of the children will be getting creative making Christmas decorations to take home with them at the end of the day. Parents and carers are invited to come and join their child/children to make decorations at the following times 9.15am-10.50am. You will be able to move between classes for those of you who have more than one child.
FOLs will be providing festive refreshments throughout the morning in the school hall. Please complete the attached form if you would like to come into school to join your child/children.
Christmas Fayre FOLs have once again been hard at work organising a Leighfield Christmas Fayre on Friday 13th December 3.30pm – 5.30pm. There will be plenty of stalls and activities to keep the whole family entertained. We would love to see you there.
