NATIONAL CURRICULUM SET TO BE MORE RELEVANT, CLEARER AND INCLUSIVE
The national curriculum for schooling will be refreshed over the next five years to ensure it is bicultural, clearer and more relevant for teachers and kaiako.
Each learning area in the New Zealand Curriculum will be refreshed - beginning with Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories in the Social Sciences learning area this year, followed with the content for Mathematics, English and Science learning areas in 2022.
The history curriculum changes come folllowing the strong call from the education community for Aotearoa New Zealand's histories to be taught to all ākonga at all schools and kura.
The new curriculum is expected to include lessons on the arrival of Māori, early colonial history of Aotearoa New Zealand, the Treaty of Waitangi and its history, and immigration to New Zealand........
