Curriculum Our Curriculum and how do we teach

This is an exciting time for education in Wales. Education in Wales is changing. The biggest change is a new curriculum for schools from September 2020. And we at Tremains Primary School are keen to embrace these changes and shape the curriculum to suite our pupils and community.

Currently the school is following the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum as stipulated in the Foundation Phase Framework and Key Stage Two curriculum orders. However, as a school we have already made some significant steps in preparing for the new curriculum. The pupils from nursery to year six are using their voices to shape their learning contexts to ensure the curriculum reflects their interests and needs.

The new curriculum has been made in Wales but shaped by the best ideas from around the world.

 

The new curriculum will look like this:

The Four Core Purposes:

The Four Core Purposes will be at the heart of the new curriculum. They will be the starting point for all decisions on the content and experiences developed as part of the curriculum to support all children and young people to be:

  • ambitious, capable learners ready to learn throughout their lives.
  • enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work.
  • ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world.
  • healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.

Key Elements

The new curriculum will include:

  • 6 Areas of Learning and Experience from 3 to 16.
  • 3 cross curricular responsibilities: Literacy, Numeracy and Digital Competence.
  • progression reference points at ages 5, 8, 11, 14 and 16.
  • achievement outcomes which describe expected achievements at each progression reference point.

The curriculum will be organised into 6 Areas of Learning and Experience:

  • Expressive arts.
  • Health and Well-being.
  • Languages, Literacy and Communication (including Welsh).
  • Mathematics and Numeracy.
  • Science and Technology.
