What is the English curriculum?
 
The Australian Curriculum for English, is built around the three interrelated strands of
  • Language
  • Literature
  • Literacy
 
Together the three strands focus on developing students’ knowledge, understanding and skills in listening, reading, viewing, speaking, writing and creating.

At Daylesford Primary School we strive to create independent literacy learners who appreciate, enjoy and use the English language in all its variations and develop a sense of its richness and power to evoke feelings, convey information, form ideas, facilitate interaction with others, entertain, persuade and argue.

An outline of the english curriculum organised under each of these strands for each year level from prep to year six is available here...

What is the Maths curriculum?

The Australian Curriculum for Mathematics is organised into three strands:
  • Number and Algebra
  • Measurement and Geometry
  • Statistics and Probability

At Daylesford Primary School, our curriculum covers each of these strands through a series of units of work based around the key understandings for each specific year level. We also have a core Maths curriculum which is based around the “Big Ideas in Number”, Problem solving and Understanding. These are the key proficiencies within Mathematics and form the basis of our teaching and learning.
