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 foundation subject curriculum Key Stage 1 are following is that of Year 2. All the learning opportunities are carefully planned to meet the needs of the cohort.
This terms learning …
Y1/2 visited the museum as part of their topic about Captain Cook. We learnt about what it was like to be a sailor in the 1700’s. We learnt to tie knots, dressed up in clothing from the time and rang the ships bell. They even fired the cannon for us. We had a great day learning about a local hero.
Aboriginal story of the Rainbow Serpent
Y1/2 can be seen below adding actions to an Aboriginal story of the Rainbow Serpent during our English lesson. This is linked to our main topic of James Cook. We are using the “Talk for Writing” approach to help children remember the structure of the story before writing it and adapting it for themselves.
