The four purposes of the new curriculum for Wales inform our teaching. Our learning experiences enable our pupils to be:

 

  • ambitious, capable learners who undertake research and evaluate critically what they find and are ready to learn throughout their lives
  • enterprising, creative contributors who give of their energy and skills so that other people will benefit and are ready to play a full part in life and work
  • ethical, informed citizens who show their commitment to the sustainability of the planet and are ready to be citizens of Wales and the world
  • healthy, confident individuals who have the skills and knowledge to manage everyday life as independently as they can and are ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.

We understand the importance of literacy skills and their use within the wider world.  As part of your child's literacy lessons, they will be learning to spell words relating to specific patterns each week in class.  We have listened to your feedback and have made available lists of words that you can study with your child at home.  The lists compiled are words that your child will come across as part of their reading in school and are age appropriate. These can be found under 'Resources and Useful Links'.
