Year One - Present and Past Family Life

Welcome back to another busy year ahead in all schools in Western Australia! 

Last year the Year Ones were exploring Present and Past Families and their teacher Anne Gemser asked them to look at an image of a family from the Victorian Era and look at what is different and what is the same. They were then asked to illustrate what their family looked like.

Knowledge & Understanding - 
  • Differences in family structures and roles today, and how these have changed or remained the same over time (ACHHK028)
Historical Skills
  • Distinguish between the past, present and future (ACHHS032)
  • Explore a range of sources about the past (ACHHS034)
  • Identify and compare features of objects from the past and present (ACHHS035)
Using images from the past can be reliable sources and will eventually lead to them being able to extract information to be used as evidence in the later years.

Below are 2 examples from the Year Ones:

  • Keep an eye on the IPL website for all our events this year. We are offering Centra, Science & History Australian Curriculum Collective (SHACC) @ Greenmount PS and History Hikes! Watch this space.
  • If you are on Twitter make sure you are following us @sawyersVsharing
  • Make sure you are part of the Connect Community via the Portal so you can ask questions with access to many professionals throughout Western Australia!
  • Access the Western Australian Curriculum via SCSA.
  • Geography is now on-line for familiarisation via the Australian Curriculum Website  
That's all for now!
