    The foundation for literacy has been built primarily in English and the foundation for numeracy primarily in mathematics, however, as two of the general capabilities, literacy and numeracy skills are addressed explicitly in the content of all learning areas.For each of the other eight capabilities and the three cross-curriculum dimensions, continuums of learning are being developed over three stages (end Year 2, end Year 6, end Year 10) to assist curriculum writers in all learning areas. A decision has not yet been made about whether and how the general capability documents will be published, separately but we are assured by Lynn that they will be.
