Hello to Everyone in the Wilton Community.

We hope you had a peaceful Easter weekend and enjoyed your chocolate treats. It has been lovely seeing more of your hearts this week and hope that everyone has received their Easter egg.  Please contact the academy if the Easter bunny has missed you out.

We have been very proud seeing that many of you have still been busy working at home, even over the Easter holidays. Please keep sending pictures in of the activities you have been doing so we can share them on Facebook and on the website.

New Learning Activities…

From Monday we will be launching some new learning activities to continue your child’s work at home.  Each year group will receive a weekly home learning sheet with challenges to undertake. Some of these will be internet linked and others will be accessible for all, as well as a whole academy task.  Children are encouraged to complete the tasks on a weekly basis and if possible, post pictures of the work they have done on our Facebook page or email to TVEWilton@tved.org.uk.

The tasks will be launched through Facebook and found on the class pages of the Home Learning pages of the website:


We would also like children to continue to read daily and regularly log into Spelling Shed and Times Tables Rockstars from Year 1 upwards.

DfE Food Voucher Scheme…

The company dealing with the food vouchers for children with benefits related free school meals have been inundated with requests.  They are hoping to get the vouchers to you as soon as possible. Please be patient as they will come through. If you have any issues regarding food supplies please contact the pastoral team between 11am and 1pm daily.

Read, Write, Inc.

As well as the new home learning tasks, just a reminder that there will be new Read, Write, Inc. lessons streaming from Monday as well as the additional resources we mentioned on the BLOG last week.  These are suitable for children in Nursery to Y2, and teachers will direct you to which is most suitable for your child.

Cultural Capital

Just a reminder that every Monday, Wednesday and Friday a new set of resources for learning about issues and opportunities in the Tees Valley is published on the Spark Tees Valley website.  This helps to raise aspirations and awareness of the world of work in the Tees Valley and teaches us lots about our local area.
