Curriculum for Wales 2023
Literacy and Numeracy Framework
The National Literacy and Numeracy Framework (LNF) is designed to help teachers embed literacy and numeracy into all subjects for learners aged 5 to 14.
The LNF sets the skills we expect learners to develop. Within literacy we expect learners to become accomplished in:
- oracy across the curriculum
- reading across the curriculum
- writing across the curriculum.
Within numeracy we expect learners to become accomplished in:
- developing numerical reasoning
- using number skills
- using measuring skills
- using data skills.
Digital Competence Framework
The Framework encapsulates the skills that will help learners thrive in an increasingly digital world.
Digital competence is one of 3 cross-curricular responsibilities, alongside literacy and numeracy. It focuses on developing digital skills which can be applied to a wide range of subjects and scenarios.
The Framework, which has been developed by practitioners from Pioneer Schools, supported by external experts, has 4 strands of equal importance, each with a number of elements.
- Citizenship – which includes:
- Identity, image and reputation
- Health and well-being
- Digital rights, licensing and ownership
- Online behaviour and cyberbullying.
- Interacting and collaborating – which includes:
- Storing and sharing.
- Producing – which includes:
- Planning, sourcing and searching
- Evaluating and improving.
- Data and computational thinking – which includes:
- Problem solving and modelling
- Data and information literacy.
In order to show the progress made by each pupil at each stage of the National Curriculum, the teachers will maintain a record of the work completed and the levels reached. These records will provide essential information for teachers, parents and other schools.
National Curriculum assessments will consist of one element: Teacher Assessment.
End of Key Stage assessments will be in the child’s last term in the Foundation Phase and his/her final term in the Junior Department (Year 6).
