Teaching and learning

At Woodridge State School, our curriculum framework is based on the new Australian Curriculum in English, mathematics, science, history and geography, with the addition of civics and citizenship (year 3 and up), business and economics (year 5 and up) in 2015. The arts, technology, languages (LOTE – Indonesian for years 5 and 6) and health and physical education will also be adopted upon familiarisation.

The curriculum gives students the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills in these areas. It also gives students the opportunity to develop general capabilities specific to the key learning areas.

Assessment is planned to align with the achievement standards, allowing judgements to be made about student progress. Feedback is used to inform students about their progress and to inform future teaching.

Reporting

Our reporting process includes both formal and informal reporting to parents / caregivers about what their children have learned and their progress.

Informal reporting occurs in the form of class and school newsletters, meet and greets, other communications, informal discussions and student sharing of their personal progress folders.

Formal reporting to parents occurs twice yearly in years prep to 6. Face-to-face interviews are also offered twice yearly at the end of each semester.

In years prep to 6, written reports are issued to parents twice yearly. These reports use the Education Queensland reporting format of OneSchool.

Reports are also issued to parents of students who have participated in the National Testing Program for Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN).
