Curriculum

Australian Curriculum

The Australian Curriculum  has been introduced in all schools nationwide from January 2012.

The Curriculum into the classroom (C2C) is an Education Queensland initiative to help introduce the new curriculum in Queensland state schools.

Prep to Year 6 will include: English, Mathematics and Science. History has commenced in 2013.

Our teachers will adapt the C2C units to meet the needs of their students.

These year level plans:

  • give an overview of what students needs to know and learn in that Year Level according to the Australian Curriculum;
  • give a brief description of the achievement standard for that year level
  • give an overview of each of the units of teaching and learning
  • detail the related assessment tasks for each unit
  • provide more detail and specific learning content descriptors from the Australian Curriculum.

Teachers modify the learning experiences to suit the needs of the students in their class. The unit assessment requirements remain consistent with C2C. Standards of student performance are judged according to our school benchmarks, as well as the C2C and QSA guidelines.

 A ‘unit’ of teaching and learning comprises:

  • Content descriptors i.e. what each students in each year level needs to know and be able to do.
  • A sequence of learning experiences that the teacher delivers in each classroom in order to ensure the ‘content’ is being taught
  • Assessment of student learning – frequently occurs throughout the unit to monitor student progress – also occurs usually on culmination of the unit in the form of a ‘unit task’; or could be a series of smaller ‘unit tasks’ throughout the unit
  • Feedback to students on their achievements and how they can make improvements
  • Reflection on the effectiveness of teaching strategies used to improve student learning.
