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
