Split Grade Planning Tools

We have developed Split Grade Planning tools for you. 

Year F/1
Year 1/2
Year 2/3
Year 3/4
Year 4/5
Year 5/6

Our school has selected specific knowledge and understandings (K&Us) to be a focus for split classes with the expectation that not all the K&Us can be covered. A focus on the Historical Skills is the main thrust of the programmes.

Three Year Cycle 2014 - 2015

We have been working on developing planning tools that can be used with the History Learning Area. We can now share these documents and they can be downloaded via the blog.
Important Information:
  • Years F-2 have the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) incorporated and the language has been modified in the general capabilities and EYLF. Years 3-7 have the language taken directly from the Australian Curriculum.
  • The planning tool has been designed to be used over one semester/2 terms. 
  • It is a word document so activities and links can be inputted easily. 
  • ScOT codes have not been hyperlinked so you can copy and paste the codes into the portal's resources online.
