Areas of learning
The new curriculum is about helping to connect learning. As well as learning literacy, numeracy and digital skills, there will be six areas of learning and experience. Children might not have lessons called these, but everything they learn will connect to these areas.
Children will also have opportunities to explore, communicate, create plans and find solutions through creativity and innovation skills. They will also have opportunities to ask questions, look at the evidence, make decisions and solve problems through Critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Children will learn to make the most of their time and talents through Personal effectiveness . They will be supported to grow in confidence, become aware of different social, cultural and ethical views and learn from mistakes. Children will learn to manage their time, set goals, make decisions and check their work through planning and organising skills.
