Kairi school will plan, teach, assess and report English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences, the arts, music and LOTE across the year levels using the Australian Curriculum.
English is organised around three interrelated strands:
- Language: The Language strand involves the development of a coherent, dynamic and evolving body of knowledge about the English language and how it works.
- Literature: Students learn to interpret, appreciate, evaluate and create literary texts such as narrative, poetry, prose, plays, film and multimodal texts, in spoken, print and digital/online contexts.
- Literacy: Students apply their English skills and knowledge to read, view, speak, listen to, write and create a growing repertoire of texts.
Mathematics curriculum is described in three content strands:
- Number and algebra.
- Statistics and probability.
- Measurement and geometry.
Mathematics embeds the proficiencies of understanding, fluency, reasoning and problem solving. It assumes teachers will make use of available digital technology, including calculators in teaching and learning contexts.
Science is organised around three interrelated strands: science understanding, science inquiry skills; and science as a human endeavour. The curriculum provides the basis for learning science that engages students in meaningful ways and prepares students to use science for life and active citizenship so that they can function effectively in a scientifically and technologically advanced society. It provides a foundation for specific learning pathways leading to senior secondary science as well as science and engineering courses at university and technical and vocational education and training.
Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS)
Australian history will be taught within a world history context, and not limited to world history from an Australian perspective. It recognises the importance of the process of historical inquiry, integrates concepts of historical understanding, including evidence, continuity and change, cause and effect, empathy, significance, perspectives and contestability.
