At Norfolk Village State School we implement the Australian Curriculum in the learning areas of English, Mathematics, Science and History. The Queensland Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Framework outlines the curriculum for the learning areas of Health and Physical Education, The Arts, Technology and Studies of Society. Teachers plan cooperatively to ensure every student is accessing the same entitled curriculum at the same time.
The Australian Curriculum
The Australian Curriculum (ACARA) sets out the core knowledge, understanding, skills and general capabilities that are important for all Australian students.
It identifies what all young people should learn as they progress through schooling, and is the foundation for high quality teaching to meet the needs of all Australian students.
In 2013 all students across Australia will have a consistent curriculum in English, Mathematics, Science and History, and these will be the four core learning areas every young Australian will study during their education from Prep to Year 10.
Incorporated within each of the four key subjects and the seven general capabilities of the Australian Curriculum are the three cross-curriculum priorities. Students will learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and culture, Asia and Australia's engagement with Asia, and Sustainability.
