Skills Based

Pupils are given the opportunity to acquire, develop, practice, apply and refine skills through group, paired and individual tasks in a variety of contexts across the curriculum. At Romilly Primary, we monitor progress of these skills by applying them to tasks that move from: concrete to abstract; simple to complex; personal to the ‘big picture’; familiar to unfamiliar; and supported to unsupported - developing the independent learner.

The skills developed in the Foundation Phase and through to Key Stage 2 are:

Number

Learners develop their number skills across the curriculum and the areas of learning by using mathematical information, calculating, interpreting and presenting results.

Communication

Learners develop their communication skills across the curriculum through the skills of Oracy, Reading, Writing and Wider Communication.

Thinking

Learners develop their thinking across the curriculum through the process of planning, developing and reflecting.

ICT

Learners develop ICT skills across the curriculum and the areas of learning by creating,
presenting, finding and developing information and ideas and by using a wide range of equipment.
