At Wilton Primary Academy, we value each child as an individual with a unique potential for learning. We believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives, where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge.
The early years of any child’s education provides the foundations for future educational success. Our Early Years setting provides the children with a nurturing environment, rich with books, writing and number. This supports the learning of phonics, counting and mark making.
Our learning themes are led by the children’s interest. We cover all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile: Number, Space, Shape and Measure, Reading, Writing and Knowledge and Understanding of the World. Other areas covered are Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Expressive Arts and Design, Physical Development and Communication and Language.

As part of their Arctic winter topic, early years have been learning about arctic animals and experimenting with freezing and melting. The children used their problem solving skills to find ways to free the penguins from the icebergs and build igloos for them.
