Parents received handouts regarding the NZ Curriculum explaining what students will learn in reading, writing and maths.  Parents are given specific tips for helping their child at home in these three learning areas.  Students are given a National Standard based on evidence from assessments and teacher observations across the year.  Teachers make an over-all teacher judgement based on summative and formative assessment.
