Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 form the junior department of Miskin Primary School. Here, learning becomes more structured and independence is strongly encouraged. The foundations of learning laid in the Foundation Phase are now built upon and developed so that the children begin to apply their knowledge and skills. Our junior pupils follow the Welsh National Curriculum.
Junior pupils have a more structured timetable, where specific time is given to curriculum areas. The children are given opportunities to take on roles in the School Council, Eco Committee and as Digital Leaders. The use of incidental Welsh is developed and bilingualism is supported through daily ‘Helpwr Heddiw’ sessions.
The school has a strong family ethos and the older children are expected to take responsibility for escorting and supporting younger family members and friends in assembly. Junior children are expected to set a good example to the younger children during house events and competitions, including Sports Day, the Eisteddfod and the Remembrance Day service.
