Key competencies in the New Zealand Curriculum

About the key competencies

Key competencies are the capabilities people have, and need to develop, to live and learn today and in the future.
The New Zealand Curriculum identifies five key competencies:
  • Thinking
  • Relating to others
  • Using language, symbols, and texts
  • Managing self
  • Participating and contributing
All of these key competencies are of equal and utmost importance in Room 1, daily.
We are learning to work together and listen to each other.
We manage ourselves by putting our gear away in the morning and focus on our work and play.
We learn to read and write and do maths.
We participate and contribute with all we do!
Children learn about these key competencies in real life scenarios, or role play. 
These key competencies are discussed and named often.
