This section is intended for primary school teachers and leaders. Others, including parents, families, whānau, communities, and students themselves, may also find it useful. It presents the National Standards for reading and writing in years 1–8. It also provides examples that illustrate some of the ways in which students can meet these standards as they engage with the kinds of tasks and texts that enable them to meet the demands of the New Zealand Curriculum.
