Curriculum

Prep to Year 6 Curriculum

In 2016 Greenslopes State School will continue implementing the Australian Curriculum in English, Mathematics, Science, History and Geography. 

All Queensland teachers are also required to plan, teach and assess the remaining Key Learning Areas (KLAs): the Arts, Health and Physical Education and Technology, as part of our mandated Queensland Curriculum, utilising the essential learnings and ways of working from the Queensland Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Framework.

Teachers identify opportunities for teaching the content of units aligned with the Australian Curriculum, the Queensland Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Framework and the Early Years Curriculum Guidelines alongside each other for the purpose of making learning meaningful for students through:

  • Developing deep knowledge and deep understandings.
  • Connectedness to the world and extension of the learning beyond the school context.
  • Connecting knowledge across subject boundaries (eg links between Science, SOSE, English and the Arts).

The Australian Curriculum

The Australian Curriculum sets out the core knowledge, understanding, skills and general capabilities that are important for all Australian students.

  • English, Mathematics, Science and History
  • General capabilities
  • Cross-curriculum priorities

Curriculum into the Classroom (C2C)

Greenslopes State School has elected to adopt and adapt the C2C planning documentation, which interprets the Australian curriculum.

Curriculum into the Classroom (C2C) is an Education Queensland initiative to help introduce the Australian Curriculum in Queensland State Schools, and includes English, Mathematics, Science and History for Prep to Year 10.

Curriculum minimum time requirements

The C2C English, Mathematics, Science and History materials for Prep to Year 7, meet the minimum curriculum time requirements per week.

Staff have the flexibility to adjust the lesson plans, build in appropriate revision and extension time to assist with the range of student needs and adjust weekly hours to factor in blocks of teaching, special events, such as carnivals, excursions and public holidays.

For a full breakdown of the weekly hours, please refer to the table in the Curriculum minimum time requirements (PDF, 187 KB).
