Curriculum Support for Continuity of Learning
Noosaville State School has provided a set of resources from the Department of Education to support your child should they need to work from home in response to the current situation regarding COVID-19.
In the event that your child does not attend school, we are recommending the following daily learning activities to support you and your child in their continuing studies.
Your role in your child’s education is important. Research shows that children whose parents are active and interested in their learning:
- have better educational outcomes
- have a greater sense of what’s expected of them and how they can succeed at school; and
- are more likely to graduate and go on to post-secondary education.
To get a better understand of what your child is learning at each stage of their schooling, you can familiarise yourself with the Australian Curriculum.
General support required at home
- Reading on their own (independent)
- Reading with an adult (shared and guided)
- Writing – daily journal, stories, persuasive, etc.
- Completing assigned work/homework
- Mathematics and science – everyday mathematic problems, challenges, etc... (age appropriate)
E.g. money, number facts, cooking involving measurement and problem solving
A suite of curriculum resources providing opportunities and resources for students to continue their learning while not being able to access a school have been developed by The Department of Education.
These materials are designed as a support tool for students to engage in familiar activities essential to their learning and wellbeing. The included tasks and activities allow for students to work at their own pace from home. These materials can be accessed in the Education Queensland Learning Place.
Students will need to use their school login details to access this resource. This is only available for students in Year 2 to Year 6 at this stage.
Students in Prep to Year 3 may require adult support to read and understand instructions and write responses. Detailed lesson instructions, helpful information, teaching tips and answers are provided.
The lessons for Years 4–10 are independent student materials that are written for a child to work through independently. They contain a complete set of student resources, teaching episodes and learning objects.
These are initial measures that we are putting in place. As we receive further advice, additional learning opportunities and resources will be developed and communicated to parents/caregivers to allow for learning continuity.
