Whole School Thematic Program Overview An example of an integrated program approach, focusing on outcomes in HSIE, Mathematics, PDHPE and SciTech. Within these programs teachers would incorporate Creative Arts, English and Mathematics when and where it is appropriate. Note: Thematic Focuses are only examples, as are the possible focus Outcome Strands. Schools are encouraged to develop Thematic Focuses that are relevant and of interest to their school communities and within those themes focus on outcomes that meet the needs of their students. 4 TERMS THEMATIC Natural and Built Healthy Lifestyles Communication Then and Now FOCUS Environments HSIE: HSIE: HSIE: HSIE: Environments Social Systems and Cultures Change and Continuity PDHPE: Structures Change and Continuity Mathematics: Safe Living Mathematics: Mathematics: Measurement Mathematics: Measurement Measurement Space and Geometry ODD Measurement Data Data PDHPE: FOCUS YEAR Space and Geometry PDHPE: PDHPE: Growth and OUTCOME STRANDS SciTech: Active Lifestyle Interpersonal Development Designing and Making Personal Health Choices Relationships Using Technology SciTech: SciTech: (in Built Environments) Investigating Designing and Making Using Technology Using Technology (in Living Things) (in Information and Communication) THEMATIC Goods, Services and Energy Diversity of Life Our Planet Earth FOCUS Systems HSIE: HSIE: HSIE: HSIE: Social Systems and Change and Continuity Cultures Environments Structures Mathematics: Mathematics: Mathematics: Mathematics: Measurement Measurement Measurement Measurement Data Data Space and Geometry EVEN Space and Geometry PDHPE: PDHPE: PDHPE: FOCUS YEAR SciTech: Active Lifestyle Growth and Personal Health Choices OUTCOME STRANDS Designing and Making Safe Living Development SciTech: Using Technology SciTech: Interpersonal Investigating (in Products and Investigating Relationships Using Technology Services) Using Technology SciTech: (in Earth and its (in Physical Investigating Surroundings) Phenomena) Using Technology (in Living Things) Whole School Thematic Program - Stage Overview If using the above whole school overview, a stage overview detailing focus outcomes might look like this: Natural and Built Environments – Early Stage 1 KLA Focus Strand(s) Focus Outcome(s) HSIE Environments ENES1 Gathers information about natural and built environments and communicates some of the ways in which they interact with, and can care for, these environments. PDHPE Safe Living SLES1.13 Demonstrates an emerging awareness of the concepts of safe and unsafe living. Maths Measurement MES1.1 Describes length and distance using everyday language and compares lengths - length using direct comparison. Measurement MES1.2 Describes area and distance using everyday language and compares lengths using - area direct comparison. Space & Geometry SPES1.3 Uses everyday language to describe position and give and follow simple – position directions. SciTech Designing and DM ES1.8 Generates own ideas and designs through trial and error, play, modelling and Making making. Using Technology UT ES1.9 Identifies and uses a limited range of equipment, computer-based technology, materials and other resources when undertaking exploration and production. Built Environments BE ES1.1 Explores and identifies ways in which built environments suit their users.
