As with all schools across Wales, we are continuing to develop our new Curriculum for Wales, which begins its implementation from September 2022.
We will continue to post further information on our Curriculum for Wales provision over the months ahead.
Teachers throughout the school are planning the knowledge, skills and experiences that pupils will access, together with other aspects of the curriculum such as cross-cutting themes (e.g. human rights, RSE, careers). Much of the curriculum will be provided through cross-curricula themes and pupils are encouraged to identify areas they wish to know more about. A variety of teaching methods are employed to encourage pupils to become independent learners, and children are given opportunities to study through a range of whole class, groups, paired and individual activities.
Most of our teaching is done through the medium of English. However, Welsh is taught in all classes including use of incidental Welsh throughout the school. Pupils are encouraged to speak Welsh with their peers and other adults, supported by a structured progression of words and phrases. Welsh Language is promoted in classes through choice of literature and display. Welsh songs and prayers feature in assemblies and displays highlight relevant Welsh phrases and words. We give pupils the opportunity to experience Welsh culture and heritage wherever possible. Our annual school Eisteddfod is used to promote Cwricwlwm Cymreig and pupils take part in a number of competitions through the medium of both Welsh and English.
Additional information on each of the six 'Areas of Learning and Experience' can be found in the parents menu.
