Nursery to Year 6

Our children experience a wide variety of learning opportunities in different surroundings. They benefit from bright open classrooms and access to high quality outdoor learning with specialist sport facilities.

Our children experience a wide variety of learning opportunities both indoors and outdoors. They benefit from bright open classrooms and access to high quality facilities. Teaching is innovative to foster a love of learning through nurturing curiosity and potential. Play based learning activities develop our children’s interests whilst recognising their level of maturity. Through their play, they practise and consolidate their learning, play with ideas, experiment, take risks, solve problems, and make decisions individually, as well as in groups. They learn how to observe, listen, respond and develop not only as individuals but also as caring members of our community. They leave Y Goedwig with a solid foundation in their communication, literacy and numeracy skills ready to take the next steps.
The curriculum covers the six areas of learning experience delivered through theme based learning.
The six areas include:
• Language, Literacy and Communication Skills
• Mathematics and Numeracy
• Science and Technology
• Humanities
• Health and Wellbeing
• Expressive Arts
Pupils in Year 5 and 6 begin the transition into a more specialised curriculum whilst still focusing on the essential skills of communication, literacy, numeracy and digital competence. Opportunities arise for pupils to take part in projects which encourage creativity, collaboration and skills for life.
As part of our citizenship curriculum, Year 6 pupils are offered the opportunity to apply for the role of Super ambassador allowing them to lead by example and demonstrate responsibility.
All pupils in Y Goedwig will have additional opportunity to develop leadership skills through the Senedd and our variety of pupil voice groups including Eco Club, Digital Leaders, Criw Cymraeg and Healthy Heroes.
