Prep Year

 

 As the first formal year of schooling, Prep is about learning to “do school” as well as building the foundations for learning in key subject areas. Prep students at Humpybong State School are supported in this by their class teacher and a full time teacher aide, as well as support staff from across the school.

Our Prep Curriculum is based on the Australian Curriculum. Prep students are taught and assessed in English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, Technology (Design and Digital technologies), The Arts and HPE. They continue to learn through the Early Years Curriculum for Social and Personal Learning, Health and Physical Learning and Active Learning Processes.
During Term 3, Prep students will engage with a New Pedagogies for Deep Learning (NPDL) unit, where they will explore the properties of materials and how we can be responsible global citizens in our consumption and production of waste materials (recycling, reusing).
During 2018, our Prep students will take part in a number of special events, including the Easter Bonnet Parade, Early Years Celebration, 100 days of school and Grandfriend’s Day, as well as taking part in whole school events.
In 2018 the planned excursion program for Preps includes a visit to Trevana Glen Farm in Term 1, where students will learn about the needs of farm animals, a trip to the Bunyaville Environmental Education Centre in Term 2, where students will learn how to use their senses to explore the environment and a theatre trip to Twelfth Night Theatre in Term 4, where students will watch a play.  More information about all these activities will be provided closer to the date.
The 2018 Prep curriculum documents​ are available for you to access.These include parent newsletters, information about excursions and parent information sessions, as well as English assessment tasks.
