Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS)


Teachers at South Thornlie Primary School use the School Curriculum Standards Authority (SCSA) to plan, teach, assess, judge standards and to assist in the moderation of student achievement.
In 2020 we have continued our focus on year level content, HASS skills, integration of HASS into English and the Cross-curriculum priorities of Sustainability and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures. This will been woven into our planning, teaching and assessment in HASS for 2020 and 2021. Every year the whole school celebrates NAIDOC Week with planned classroom activities and recognises other important dates such as Reconciliation Week and Harmony Day.

Robotics club with Mrs Waghorn has begun for Term 3, 2020.

Children are selected to be part of a Robotics program run after school with Mrs Waghorn and Mrs Liedermoy. The children were very excited that robotics had started again for 2020  They began practising with the Spheros and iPads making sure they were in sync under the explicit instruction of Mrs Waghorn. This intial stage is preparing them for greater use of coding later in the term.
