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 and Technology (Design and Digital technologies). They also learn The Arts and take part in HPE activities. They continue to learn through the Early Years Curriculum for Social and Personal Learning, Health and Physical Learning and Active Learning Processes.
Through our New Pedagogies for Deep Learning project, students in Prep are also learning to develop skills in Character, Citizenship, Collaboration and Critical Thinking. They are learning to understand that sometimes we ‘get stuck’ when we are learning, and what to do when this happens. They are developing an awareness of their actions on our environment and beginning to learn that their behavior has an impact on others, especially when they work in groups. Their overall theme for the year is We are allstar learners.
 During 2019, 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 2019 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 visit by Big Bang Education in Term 2, where students will learn about the mechanics of how things move, 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 2019 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.
