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.
This week Y5/6 have returned to school refreshed and ready to work hard for the final half term. The children have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the significant changes in Britain since the 1980’s and have been surprised when they found out that the internet was only invented in 1989! They have written Margaret Thatcher’s biography, discussed the reasons for the Miner’s strike in 1984 and have researched and ordered the changes in technology since the start of the 1980’s.
In English, the children have actively engaged in discussions and are starting to write and argue the topical question – Should the government shorten the school holidays and lengthen the school day? Year 5/6 have argued for and against this argument and unanimously decided – Against!
