Literacy & Numeracy Framework (LNF)

The National Literacy and Numeracy Framework

 

The National Literacy and Numeracy Framework (LNF) is designed to help embed literacy and numeracy into all subjects for learners aged 5 to 14 and is statutory throughout Wales.

 

The LNF sets the skills we expect learners to develop. Within literacy we expect learners to become accomplished in:

  • oracy across the curriculum
  • reading across the curriculum
  • writing across the curriculum.
  •  

Within numeracy we expect learners to become accomplished in:

  • developing numerical reasoning
  • using number skills
  • using measuring skills
  • using data skills.

 

National Numeracy and Literacy Tests

All children in years 2 to 6 take tests in literacy and numeracy in the summer term that are issued by the Welsh Government.

The children sit three tests: reading, numerical reading and numerical reasoning.

More information for parents about these tests can be found here: http://learning.wales.gov.uk/docs/learningwales/publications/140721-information-for-parents-carers-2-9-en.pdf
