RFF Teaching

RFF - Relief From Face to Face Teaching

In these lessons Mrs Mbonimpa will be teaching Geography to all Stages.

Kindergarten will be studying the unit "Places People Live" which provides students with the opportunity to learn about places they belong to both privately, such as their home and publicly, such as their school. They will learn about how places and spaces are designed and used and how to care for a variety of places.

Year 1/2 In the unit, "Natural, Managed and Constructed Features" students are learning to identify places that are natural (not manmade such as a waterfall), managed (require maintenance such as a park) and constructed (built such as a school), or a combination of both (such as an igloo which is manmade from a natural material). They will learn to identify the unique features of places and how places are designed and used for daily and recreational use.

Year 3/4 - The topic "Places are Similar and Different" provides students with an opportunity to realise how places are shaped to reflect the culture of their inhabitants. Students will participate in research into different customs and celebrations of the world to discover how humans are innately the same although they may have different acquired characteristics and may do things differently.

Year 5/6 -  "A Diverse and Connected World" introduces students to the concept of identity and diversity in a 'global village'. Culture is explored and defined as students compare and contrast customs around the world. Students will be introduced to the UN and its Declarations including the agreement to protect groups of individuals such as our Indigenous Australians.
