What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects here.
The school curriculum for Wales is made up of a number of areas including:
Within literacy we expect children and young people to become accomplished in:
- oracy across the curriculum
- reading across the curriculum
- writing across the curriculum.
Within numeracy we expect children and young people to become accomplished in:
- developing numerical reasoning
- using number skills
- using measuring skills
- using data skills.
In the Foundation Phase, the seven Areas of Learning are:
- Personal and Social Development, Well-being and Cultural Diversity
- Language, Literacy and Communication Skills (revised to include the literacy component of the LNF)
- Mathematical Development (revised to include the numeracy component of the LNF)
- Welsh Language Development
- Knowledge and Understanding of the World
- Physical Development
- Creative Development.
Personal and Social Development, Well-being and Cultural Diversity is at the heart of the Foundation Phase and should be developed across the curriculum.
In Key Stage 2 (Juniors), as well as developing the main curricular areas and focusing on Literacy and Numeracy through the Literacy and Numeracy Framework, we realise that skills development underpins the whole curriculum. Skills are a key part of the learner-centred and skills-focused curriculum. Continuity and progression in thinking, communication, ICT and number for learners are skills that are fundamental for learners to become successful individuals. St. Michael’s uses skills development in both the Foundation Phase and KS2 curriculum.
Through religious education, following the 'Come and See' programme, children will be given opportunities to explore their own experiences, questions and priorities and those of other people, reflect on the value of life and be encouraged to act responsibly towards living things in an open way through the exploration of belief.
