The 2022 Welsh curriculum in Primary schools

We know that the Welsh curriculum is changing in the new academic year in 2022 for all Primary schools, with Secondary schools to follow in 2023. When it comes to Mathematics and Numeracy in the new curriculum, there are five new Mathematical proficiencies for Welsh Primary schools:

  • Conceptual understanding
  • Fluency
  • Communication with symbols
  • Logical reasoning
  • Strategic competence

In this blog we are going to look at how Abacus can be used to support the teaching of two of these proficiencies: fluency, and logical reasoning. There is no doubting that these two Mathematical areas are already being developed in Wales in the current curriculum, but the below is a reminder of the fantastic Abacus resources we have on offer to support these two skills.
