Timetable

The Australian Curriculum uses a spiral approach to teaching science, teaching a little bit of biology, chemistry, physics, earth and space science—each year. However Charlotte Mason science lessons use an immersion approach—this is where you focus on one topic at a time and cover it in depth, possibly over a year. This resource has been prepared with more of an immersion approach in mind.

You can choose to do a part of each resource each year or follow sequentially through each topic over the three years. It is up to you. These topics flow well together, and flexibility is allowed when deciding when to teach them. The Australian Curriculum content and outcomes per year are suggested  guidelines but the learning is grouped into one early learning framework—Foundation to Year 2 (or Stage One in NSW). During these years it is considered appropriate to teach “and then to select the most  appropriate content (possibly from across several year levels)”. The teacher has autonomy here, “The order and detail in which the content descriptions are organised into teaching and learning programs are decisions to be made by the teacher.” (Australian Curriculum: implementing).

The Australian Curriculum & NSW Syllabus

This resource uses the framework of the Australian Curriculum for its  lessons. For those studying in NSW who are worried that the NSW Board of Studies syllabus has not been used exactly, do not fret. Here is a quote taken from the NSW Home Schooling Registration Package 2013, “the   educational   program identifies the intended learning outcomes BASED ON the relevant Board of Studies syllabus and relevant content.” Since the NSW syllabus is based on the Australian Curriculum, differences are minimal and your program only needs to be based on the NSW Board of Studies syllabus which is, as mentioned, based on the Australian Curriculum anyway.

Creation And Evolution

The guides were written by homeshooling mothers who both have science based university degrees. They do not believe in the theory of evolution and have a young earth theology. However the resources are basically secular in nature.
