Year 1 or 2 Art

The benefits of studying Lower Primary Art

Our Lower Primary Art and Design homeschooling course covers the Year 1 and Year 2 requirements of the Cambridge Assessment International Curriculum.

This course is designed to introduce young learners to a stimulating artistic experience and equip them with the skills needed to explore their personal artistic journey. The course aims to allow the child to experiment with a wide range of media and techniques.

Young children will be shown different starting points and techniques alongside being given confidence in their own creative abilities. Child friendly themes and ideas will be used as a stimulus. Storytelling will also form a core part of the course.

Students will produce a large portfolio of work throughout the course including three dimensional and ephemeral pieces.

Zacharias really wants to read. He keeps showing up with books pointing at words and letters. He also starts writing by himself things he names. Like his famous dinosaurs. It isn’t the correct spelling, but he gets closer and closer to it. Something we as parents have been waiting for a long time. Once he can read and write, the world is his.

I’m most impressed that Lily can now start to read and write thanks to Wolsey Hall college. I think she is now well ahead of her class mates. We live in South East Asia and my daughter is 5.5 yrs old. Her school was closed during the China Virus lockdown for several months. We have nearly finished Part 1 – 12 week lessons in English and Maths. English is not my daughters ‘mothers tongue’ as such; and before starting the course she could not read any words and could only write basic words. At week 12 I’m very impressed with her as she can now read and write so well. Nearly every lesson there’s a lot of practice with ‘blending’ words for reading and ‘splitting’ sounds for spelling. It really works and she enjoys it as well. The Maths lessons are also good with many different teaching techniques. All resources can be downloaded and thus the guided teaching is easy to follow. Highly recommend this homeschooling college.

The Wolsey Hall approach to reading and phonics is especially well designed. Wolsey approaches learning letter sounds in “layers”. This has made it possible for our daughter to learn to read in a matter of weeks without being overwhelmed. We find it remarkable that our 4 year old daughter is reading small books all on her own with confidence and enjoying it very much.

My daughter’s reading has improved so much, that I’m amazed daily how well she can read. I really like the way the course is designed to teach phonics and graphemes. It gives my daughter confidence to try herself to write new words. She does not ask me anymore for help.
