English in the national curriculum
The guidance document provides key messages about teaching, learning and progression in English.
The material includes profiles of learners’ work at Key Stages 2 and 3. These exemplify the standards set out in the level descriptions and illustrate how to use these descriptions to make best-fit judgements at the end of the key stage.
Skills across the curriculum
The curriculum has a clear focus on the needs of learners and the process of learning, and on the development and application of skills.
To help schools deliver the curriculum, a non-statutory framework, Skills framework for 3 to 19-year-olds in Wales, has been developed.
This framework defines the range of skills that learners aged 3-19 should develop, and provides guidance about continuity and progression in developing thinking, communication, information and communication technology (ICT) and number.
Learning across the curriculum
The curriculum identifies three areas of learning:
- knowledge and understanding of Wales
- personal and social development and well-being
- awareness of the world of work.
Learners should be given opportunities to develop and apply these across the curriculum.
