Year 5

The Australian Curriculum across Years 3–6 assists students to develop their ability to take positive action for well-being; relate and communicate well with others; pose questions and solve problems; make informed decisions and act responsibly. It engages students more purposefully with the discipline knowledge, understanding and skills of the eight learning areas of the Australian Curriculum.


Literacy and numeracy are again prioritised across these years of schooling. The curriculum further builds the essential knowledge and skills in literacy, consolidating ‘learning to read and write’ through English, as well as increasingly using literacy skills for ‘reading and writing to learn’ in other learning areas. Similarly, the curriculum continues to progress the development of specific mathematical skills and knowledge, and uses these skills in learning across the curriculum to both enrich the study of other learning areas and contribute to the development of broader and deeper numeracy skills. The development of Information and Communication Technology Capability is more apparent across the curriculum at this level.


Reference to the Moreton Downs State School  Year 5 Curriculum Overview provides a snapshot of Key Learning Areas for the 2018 school year.


2019 IMPACT Project - Just Write
Moreton Downs State school enters its second year participation within the IMAPCT Centre projects focusing on the available 'Just Write' programs. The prime focus of Moreton Downs SS involvement is to offer our students an extension writing program that extends beyond the formulaic writing process. Identified students discover how successful writers create ideas and expand on those ideas to draw the audience in.
Students practise the craft of writing, constructing sentences and passages that cover subject matter, mode and tenor. The Just Write Program provides a great opportunity fo each student to experience onloine learning. This includes the chance to connect and collaborate with students from other state schools in Queensland.
The program is delivered throught the IMPACT Centre in partnership with Moreton Downs State School. More information is available at
