Curriculum

At Drillham the F-10 Australian Curriculum is delivered for all learning areas from Prep to Year 6.  Teachers are currently planning, teaching, assessing and reporting using the F-10 Australian Curriculum.  To find out more visit Australian Curriculum.

Queensland C2C (Curriculum into the Classroom) materials are used as supporting documents for all learning areas.  C2C quality assured assessment tasks are used for English and Mathematics along with school approved material

Time allocation for each learning area at Drillham is in-line with requirements as set out by the QCAA (Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority).

 

Developing the general capabilities of the Australian Curriculum is a priority at Drillham as
well as developing literacy and numeracy skills across all learning areas.  To support literacy development a focus is placed on the 'Big 6' which include oral language, phonemics awareness, phonics, vocabulary development, fluency and comprehension. 

While implementing the curriculum, teachers plan for the development of cortical and creative thinking, information and communication technology capabilities and personal and
social capabilities to develop the whole child.

Testing and Assessment

Student's progress is monitored throughout the term through work samples, observations and formal assessment. Assessment generally occurs at the end of units.  This may occur mid term or at the end of term.  Assessment items align to the unit of work taught.
 
Formal written reports are published twice a year at the end of term two and four. Parent teacher interviews are organised at the end of term one and three. Parents are welcome to organise parent teacher meetings at anytime.
 
Year 3's and Year 5's participate in the three day National Assessment Program in Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) in May each year.  A NAPLAN report is issued to parents later in the year.  For more information visit NAP (National Assessment Program).
