Curriculum

Australia is moving towards a national curriculum to achieve consistency in curriculum, assessment and reporting from Prep to Year 10.  Australian Curriculum subjects will be phased into Queensland schools over several years.  Morningside State School is currently implementing the Australian curriculum for English, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History, LOTE (Japanese) and Health curriculum.  During 2017, our teachers are becoming familiar with the Australian curriculum for The Arts and Technology.  Currently, Morningside State School's school curriculum is also framed by the Queensland Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Framework’s Essential Learnings in the areas of Technology and The Arts.
The teachers at Morningside State School are using and adapting Education Queensland's C2C (Curriculum into the Classroom) units of work, ensuring consistency of curriculum delivery across all classes in a year level. When necessary, our teachers adapt these units to ensure that they suit the context of their classrooms and students. This is done through modifying the knowledge and skills to be taught (content), the activities or ways the students learn the content (process), the documented evidence of student’s learning (product) and the physical and emotional setting in the classroom (environment), to ensure that the learning needs of every student in the class are being catered for. This means that in every year level, the same curriculum is delivered however, the way the curriculum is taught in each classroom may look different, in response to the learning styles and needs of the students in that particular class.

Our Prep curriculum follows the Australian Curriculum Foundation level, as well as incorporating play based curriculum based on the Early Years Curriculum Guidelines, which are designed around two Early Learning Areas that have been shown to build strong foundations for success at school:

1.    Social and personal learning

2.    Active learning processes

 

Throughout units of work, students are given specific and constructive feedback on ways to improve their learning. Students in many classes are actively involved in setting their own learning goals, based on the feedback being given to them by their teachers.

Reporting to parents occurs through parent-teacher interviews in Terms 1 and 3, as well as through written reports in Terms 2 and Term 4.  Written reports are emailed to parents so it important that the office is informed if your contact details change.  If you do not have access to email, please ensure you let the office know so we can arrange a hard copy for you.
