Teachers talk about how parents can help kids understand maths homework.
The NSW literacy continuum K-10 describes a student's progress in literacy across the curriculum. It identifies behaviours that demonstrate how a student's skills and understandings develop in eight critical aspects of literacy.
The NSW Numeracy Continuum outlines a progression of learning that can be used when observing students working on problems in mathematics.
The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA), in collaboration with states and territories, has developed agreed Australian curriculum for English, Mathematics, Science, History and Geography. Each of these learning areas includes content statements that represent essential learning for all Australian students.
NAPLAN tests identify whether all students have the literacy and numeracy skills that provide the critical foundation for their learning, and for their productive and rewarding participation in the community. Students are assessed using common national tests in reading, writing, language conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and numeracy.
NAPLAN tests are not tests students can cram for. Students should continue developing their literacy and numeracy skills through their school curriculum because the tests contain content identical to what is undertaken in regular classroom learning and assessment.
