On Tuesday 28th January 2020, the Welsh Government published the final version of the new Curriculum for Wales. The final publication comes after many years of planning, developing and consultation with many stakeholders.
The publication can be found here (if you wish to read it): https://hwb.gov.wales/curriculum-for-wales/?_ga=2.200339821.217521656.1580642810-2021777438.1475178206
The Four Core Purposes
Our curriculum will have four core purposes underpinning everything we do. These will be the “golden threads” that will develop the whole pupil and will be the foundation of everything our pupils learn.
Our aim is for all children and young people to be:
● ambitious, capable learners who are ready to learn throughout their lives
● enterprising, creative contributors who are ready to play a full part in life and work
● ethical, informed citizens who are ready to take part in Wales and the world
● healthy, confident individuals who are ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.
Areas of Learning Experience (AoLEs)
Our new curriculum will be organised under Areas of Learning Experience rather than traditional subject headings and aims to help our pupils to connect their learning.
As well as learning literacy, numeracy and digital skills, there will be six areas of learning and experience. We might not have lessons called these, but everything our pupils learn will connect to these areas.
We have already started this work on connecting our learning and would like to invite you to an exhibition of next week’s ‘Celf Cymraeg’ work in our hall from 2pm to 3pm on Friday, 14th February 2020.
We look forward to seeing you.
