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.
In our class, we are following the Y4 curriculum. This term, alongside our core offer of Reading, Writing and Maths we have been exploring the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain, modern day Italy and collage techniques to name but a few.
Where possible we make links to different areas of the curriculum, but we also teach discrete lessons, building on subject specific skills and providing the children with opportunities to apply these skills.

The children in year 3 & 4 have been working with a local artist, as part of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. The artist the children have been researching is David Hockney.
They have looked at techniques such as drawing, mark making and experimenting with ideas and resources.
The children intend to use the inspiration from David’s work to create their own landscape of the local area that interests them.
