Curriculum

At Moore Park State School (MPSS) we offer the following Key Learning Areas:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Humanities and Social Sciences (History, Geography, Civics and Citizenship, and Economics)
  • Health and Physical Education
  • The Arts (Music, Visual Art, Drama, Media and Dance)
  • Digital Technologies
  • Language Other Than English (LOTE)

 

MPSS follows the Australian Curriculum from the Foundation Year (Prep) to Year Six in English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities and Social Sciences . Compliance with other subject areas will follow as they are developed and ready for implementation. At this stage, students access the other KLAs through the Essential Learnings of the Queensland Curriculum.

LOTE is studied formally in Years Five and Six for 1 hour and 15 minutes per week. The LOTE language at MPSS is Japanese.

Specialist teachers deliver programs in Music and Physical Education. Digital Technologies will also be a priority in 2018, with a specialized teacher delivering quality instruction in ICT skills.

MPSS has a strong focus on literacy in our curriculum and this has been actively supported by a literacy coach for teachers. Improvements in reading and reading comprehension have been at the core of the program.

Teaching is a complex mixture of science and artistry, teachers having to know their subjects and how to develop knowledge, understanding and application of the different subject matter in all their students. We believe that we do it well, but our students will do even better if their parents and guardians are working with us.

We believe that children learn best if parents and teachers work in partnership. Our teachers hold a parent night early in the year to inform parents about curriculum, homework, class routines, parent helpers in the classroom and general behaviour expectations. This gives parents an opportunity to get to know their child’s teacher, while our teachers can develop contacts with the parents.  

We send reports home at the end of each semester.  These reports provide you with a comprehensive picture of your child’s progress. From the report you are able to celebrate his or her successes and have a good idea of how you and the teacher can work with your child to improve further still.

We encourage parents to attend the parent-teacher interview which are held mid-year. This will provide a more personal opportunity for parents to hear clear, specific information about their children directly from the teacher and learn how your child can be even more successful.
