To help make learning relevant, Curriculum for Excellence promotes skills for:
- Learning – thinking skills which will encourage the deep learning learners can apply in real-life and relevant situations.
- Life – core skills required to enable learners to make meaningful contributions to their own lives and the wider society.
- Work – skills identified in the Scottish Government’s lifelong skills strategy which are valued highly by employers and are key to success in the world of work.
At the beginning of each month (starting from October), the children will bring home their Skills’ Diary. We hope you enjoy talking with your child about their learning.
This term we are learning about –
Primary 1 to 3 will be finding out about the Weather.
Primary 4 to 7 will be learning about Natual Disasters.
If you have any information or can help us in our topics, please let the school know!
In Maths, we will be continuing our Number and Numeracy.
In Language, we will continue to use the North Lanarkshire literacy ideas. We are now have a spelling test each week. We are also developing our literacy by focusing on talking and listening activities across learning and using different reading skills such as scanning and skimming, making predictions, metallinguistics and determining the importance.
An important focus of Curriculum for Excellence is pupils being responsible for their own learning and setting targets. At Auchengray Primary School, our children reflect on their learning in a variety of ways through group discussions, conversations with the teacher and other adults at the school and through peer and self-assessment. At Auchengray Primary School, we are developing setting targets in Literacy, Numeracy and Health and Wellbeing.
Greater ownership of personal learning leads to confidence and a sense of success through achievement.
Across learning, children will make progress by developing their learning and thinking skills. The development of thinking skills is central to Curriculum for Excellence.
These transferable skills will equip pupils for the world of further and higher education, for work and for life.
