National Literacy and Numeracy Frameworks

Literacy and numeracy skills are essential in order for children to reach their potential.

"The National Literacy and Numeracy Framework (LNF) has been developed to help achieve our aim that the children of Wales are able to develop excellent literacy and numeracy skills during their time at school." (Welsh Government)

Curriculum Planning

All teachers use the revised frameworks as a nucleus for planning. Each session includes a developmentally appropriate literacy and / or numeracy skill.

This ensures that children make links between the skills they have been taught in their literacy and numeracy sessions and other areas of the curriculum e.g topic based learning.
