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 Year 1/2 staff are Mrs Barron and Ms Collier.

Please see the information below which provides you with an overview of the curriculum for the Y1/2 class for the 2023/24 academic year. 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.

The children have made a strong start on returning to the academy.  We have been using an atlas to find map symbols and how they help us to locate things in a city.  

This has helped us find many human and physical features of London and have used their knowledge to compare our capital city with Middlesbrough.

In science we are exploring materials and the objects they make.  We have been sorting objects depending on man made and natural materials.

Before the Christmas break, 5 children studied the artist Frederiksen Hundertwasser who took inspiration from nature.  I’m sure you will agree our art gallery in the main corridor looks very impressive.

Children continue to enjoy stories to develop their writing.  Year two are excited by the story “The owl who was afraid of the dark” and are using this as a model to write their own version.

Year 1 have been reading “The lost toys in the museum” they have been excited to find out where the toys were and why they fans away.

They have recorded their own TV news report and to make predictions and develop inference skills.
