The four purposes are that all children and young people will be:

  • Ambitious, capable learners who are ready to learn throughout their lives.
  • Enterprising, creative contributors who are ready to play a full part in life and work.
  • Ethical, informed citizens who are ready to be citizens of Wales and the world.
  • Healthy, confident individuals who are ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.


In Dosbarth Ely, we will start to look at each aspect of teaching and learning and how it will support us in becoming Ambitious, Capable Learners; Enterprising, Creative Contributors; Ethical, informed citizens and Healthy, Confident Individuals.


Our starting point in the Autumn Term will be taking apart each of the Four Core Purposes and asking the learners what it means to them. What does it mean to be ambitious? What does creative mean? Am I a citizen? How can I be more confident?


At St David's we use a scheme called 'Read, Write, Inc' to teach children how to read and write. Below are the letter sounds we will use during our phonic sessions.
