Human Society: Change and Continuity

  • Students describe events and actions related to the British colonization of Australia and asses the changes and consequences:
    • sequence significant events related to human occupation in Australia
    • identify the consequences of “terra numis” by the British Government
    • describe the involvement of people from other countries in Australia’s heritage
    • acquire and critically evaluate information from source material
Human Society: Environments

  • Students describe people’s interaction with environments and identify responsible ways of interacting with environments:
    • indicate the consequences of using features, sites and places in different ways


Science: Knowledge and Understandings

  • understand that the activities of people can change the balance of nature
  • describe the process of investigation which can involve exploring and discovering phenomena and events, proposing explanations, initiating investigations, predicting outcomes, testing, modifying and applying understanding
Science: Skills

  • make detailed observations using appropriate technologies
  • produce a model, prototype, or product to meet a specific design task
Science: Values and Attitudes

  • show flexibility and responsiveness to ideas
  • initiate and preserve with activities to their completion
  • be curious about and appreciate the natural and made environment


Working Mathematically

  • extends a mathematical investigation by asking “what if” questions
  • selects and uses appropriate problem-solving strategies to complete investigations
  • uses mathematical terminology and some conventions to explain, interpret and represent mathematical situations in a variety of ways
  • gives a valid reason for a solution to an investigation and checks that the answer makes sense in the original situation
  • reflects on own method of problem solving
  • selects appropriate technology and uses it in mathematical investigations

  • recognizes, visualizes, describes, makes and represents three-dimensional objects
  • recognizes that objects can be represented using scale models and makes simple calculations using scale
  • uses simple coordinates or compass points to describe position, and marks out points on a grid

  • makes conversions between measurement units
  • selects from a range of of units and measuring devices to measure accurately and record in practical situations
  • explains the relationship between length, breadth and area of a rectangle and uses it to calculate the area of rectangles
  • measures and records the mass of objects to the nearest gram
  • uses 24 hour time and am and PM notation to read, construct and interpret timetables and timelines in real situations

  • counts, compares and orders whole numbers up to seven digits and represents them in symbols and words
  • recognizes and represents common fractions, decimals and percentages
  • recognizes and represents the relationships among hundredths when represented as common fractions, decimals and percentages
  • recalls division facts up to 100 and uses them in everyday situations
  • counts, compares, orders and calculates with decimals up to two places
  • selects and uses appropriate mental, written and calculator techniques to approximate and calculate solutions to problems involving whole numbers, money and decimal fractions
