About this illustration

The journey of using the Australian Curriculum has involved developing trust and honouring previous achievements and work. Teachers had the opportunity to be curriculum leaders, specialising in learning area content, working with consultants for deep understanding, then working with staff on an individual and year-level basis. The staff use shared school based proformas and documents when planning. When planning, the staff focus on learning intentions, assessment and reflection. Integrated units outlined in the film are for Year 6: English, history, technology and general capabilities; and for year 1: English, geography and technology.
