About the event

A one hour interactive introduction to the fundamentals of the Ready 4 Learning Framework

We all know and recognise those children who are ‘not ready’ or equipped for our very structured New Zealand Curriculum and early years school system. But how do we know when our learners are ready to access the curriculum? Do we know what needs to be done to support our learners to be ready to access the curriculum?

The Ready 4 Learning framework supports and underpins the “foundation skills” needed for a learner to be curriculum ready. Higher level cognitive tasks such as Literacy and Mathematics are dependent upon the successful execution of fundamental skills and related tasks. If these skills are not automatic, the brain will concentrate on those rather than on the higher level thinking tasks.  In most cases,  a child has to learn these foundational skills in order to be able to successfully access the NZC.

Elements in the Ready for Learning framework consist of speaking, concepts of print, hearing, seeing and moving (fine/gross motor skills). In the Ready for Learning framework we gain an insight into what skills the child needs to have in order for them to gain automaticity in their ability to read/write and carry out abstract thinking needed for maths.
