New Zealand Curriculum
and IB Primary Years Programme

New Zealand Curriculum

Bucklands Beach Intermediate School follows the New Zealand Curriculum which includes eight learning areas: English, the arts, health and physical education, learning languages, mathematics and statistics, science, social sciences, and technology.

We have a strong emphasis on Inquiry Learning and where possible we believe in integrating these learning areas. Throughout the year we plan 6 units of inquiry collaboratively (with specialist teachers also) and reflect on these on an ongoing basis. These units link to our school mission, school goals, the NZ Curriculum and the programme framework of International Baccalaureate.

 

Key Competencies

The New Zealand Curriculum identifies five key competencies: thinking, using language, symbols, and texts, managing self, relating to others, participating and contributing.
