Question and answer
Q: explain the importance of literacy and numeracy skills for accessing the wider curriculum
A: Literacy and numeracy skills are extremely important for accessing the wider curriculum. This is because literacy skills are required for everything. [ If a learner has a difficulty with literacy then they will find it difficult to read work and also may have a problem with writing. An example of this could be not being able to read the words on a music sheet during a music lesson or perhaps
not being able to label a diagram they have made in a science lesson. Numeracy skills can be as equally required throughout the wider curriculum and again if a learner has difficulty within this area then it would affect other areas of their learning. For example, a child who has difficulty counting may found it hard during a PE lesson when they have been asked to perform a sequence of actions such as do 3 jumps then 2 hops? etc. Poor literacy and numeracy skills may also have an effect socially on a learner. Poor reading, writing and communication skills could have an effect on how much a child integrates with others. Poor numeracy skills such as counting could cause children not to want to join in games or others wanting them to join in. ]
