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.
We teach and deliver across all seven areas within the Early Years Foundation Stage: Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design. The staff in Early Years are Mrs Wardle and Mrs Robinson.
Please see the links below for more information on the Early Years curriculum for both Nursery and Reception pupils. We regularly feature the learning activities from each class on our weekly blog, so please have a look at this and the academy gallery, together with posts on our social media. Links to all of these pages can be found under the Celebrating Wilton tab.
In Early Years we have been learning about significant celebrations and days that have taken place over the last few weeks.
We talked about bonfire night safety and fireworks. The children made firework pictures and wrote the sounds that they make.
For Remembrance day we learnt the meaning of the poppy and explored different materials to make our own.
Last week we celebrated Diwali. The children enjoyed learning facts and listening to stories about the Hindu festival of light. We made Diya lamps and Rangoli patterns.
