AFL QUEENSLAND YEAR 4 CURRICULUM PROGRAM - EVERYONE MATTERS

 

Everyone Matters is an innovative program designed by teachers, for teachers.

Culture and family are important to a child’s sense of identity, belonging and success. Throughout the program, students will learn about diversity, empathy and respect. The AFL believes that it is critical to support students from culturally diverse backgrounds and ensure people are welcoming and approachable, accepting of difference and able to respect multiple ways of being – it helps students to build a sense of belonging and trust.

The curriculum program is a celebration of multiculturalism and promotes inclusive behaviours, positive relationships and valuing diversity while using AFL as a vehicle for learning. The program aligns with the Australian Curriculum, meeting multiple achievements standards and content descriptors. The well-resourced program is free for schools comprising unit plan, lesson plans, activity resources and assessment tools suitable for today’s classroom.

The program is eight sessions in duration;

  • 4 x Health lessons (delivered by classroom teachers)
  • 4 x Movement lessons – includes Indigenous games (co-delivered by HPE teachers and AFL Queensland staff)
