Language, Literacy & Communication
Languages, Literacy and Communication enable us to analyse and understand the world around us.
By being supported to become successful in this area of learning and experience, learners are therefore also supported to succeed across the whole curriculum.
The Languages, Literacy and Communication Area of Learning and Experience will enable all learners to gain knowledge and skills in Welsh, English and international languages as well as in literature. Where applicable, its provision will include opportunities to learn Welsh and English as additional languages (WAL/EAL) and to learn other home or community languages too.
In all cases, it will encourage learners to be aware of the links between languages as they develop an appreciation of the origins of words and an interest in language patterns. They will be encouraged to transfer what they have learned about how languages work in, for example, Welsh and English to learning and using international languages. This multilingual approach will ignite learners’ enthusiasm and provide them with a firm foundation for a lifelong interest in learning subsequent languages and in literature from Wales and the world.
Statements of what matter:
Learning about identity and culture through languages prepares us to be citizens of Wales and the World.
Learners who listen and read effectively are prepared to learn throughout their lives.
Learners who speak and write effectively are prepared to play a full part in life and work.
Literature fires imagination and inspires creativity.
