This project is carefully aligned to the current requirements of the 'Curriculum for Wales' and the principles of the Foundation Phase. At the heart of this new curriculum are four core purposes for all children and young people. During the 'Mij the Alien Project', children are engaging in experiences which are designed to give opportunities for every individual to develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge to be ambitious, capable learners; enterprising, creative contributors; healthy, confident individuals and ethical, informed citizens.
"All Settings and schools should strengthen their Foundation Phase practice and pedagogy in relation to these four purposes - embedding them at the heart of the new curriculum."
If you would like more detail about the new 'Curriculum for Wales' and the 'Foundation Phase', you can follow the links to download the full curriculum documents from the Welsh Government website. Alternatively, we are happy for you to download our 'Big Picture Overviews'.
“The Foundation Phase was identified by Professor Donaldson as a particular strength of the curriculum in Wales and he stated that much is to be learned from it as the new curriculum develops.”
