Hello to all our children, parents and carers,

Thank you to everyone who has engaged with the home learning this week; we hope you found the home learning packs useful. The packs for next week will be available from the academy from Monday onwards.

Our Year 6

We sadly say goodbye today to our Year 6 children.  We are really going to really miss this year group and hope they have lots of happy memories from their time in the academy.  They have been a lovely bunch and the academy will not be the same without them. The hoodies were a lovely way for them to mark the end of their time at Wilton. We wish you all lots of happiness and success in the future! Let us know how you get on. Don’t be strangers.

Year 5

For those children who have requested a place in the academy, we look forward to welcoming you back on Monday 29th June.  The children need to arrive at school for 8.50am where a member of staff will be there to meet you. The day ends at 2.50pm, so please be there to collect your child at the end of the day. We do not require the children to bring anything, unless they are bringing a packed lunch.

Seven Stories

Seven Stories is the National Centre for Children’s Books in Newcastle.  They had an exhibition that was due to open before lockdown – Where Stories Come From. This explores the idea that every story fits into one of seven basic story plots.  There are examples of a range of books that fit in each type of plot and some fun videos to watch/activities to do

There are some links to good texts on diversity and some digital events for families, linked to current events, and available at a small cost. 


My Body, Your Body – Skin

We were desperate to share this lovely book with you. It celebrates the fact that everyone is different. It takes children on a journey through the different types of skin that people have. We hope you enjoy sharing this at home with your children.
