Curriculum

At Undurba State School our curriculum is designed to provide the best outcomes for all learners. Planning and implementation is guided by the systemic requirements of the Education Queensland P – 12 Curriculum Framework. Within our school context the Early Years Curriculum Guidelines forms the basis of our prep program and the Queensland Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Framework (QCARF) throughout Years 1 – 6.

Prep

Our Prep teachers work collaboratively to develop units of work based on the Early Years Curriculum and dependent on learners’ interests and needs. Visit the Early Years Curriculum Guidelines for further information.

Years 1 – 6

Units of work are developed from the Essential Learnings and are based on the Key Learning Areas (KLAs) of English, Mathematics, Science, Studies of Society & Environment, Technology, The Arts, Health and Physical Education and Japanese. Teachers work collaboratively in year level teams and consider:

  • the targeted Essential Learnings and Assessable Elements

  • learners’ strengths, needs and interests

  • the learning context, deep understandings and key learning experiences

  • pedagogical approaches and strategies

  • the integration of ICTs

  • integration of indigenous perspectives in appropriate units of work

  • assessment, evidence and moderation

  • reporting.

Assisting learners to meet requirements in the essential skills of literacy and numeracy so they are able to effectively participate in education, is a priority. Our early years’ program builds a strong skill foundation. In the middle years, our learners are provided with challenging learning experiences to extend and refine their knowledge and skills.
