English Curriculum Discounts for HEA Members
The Australian Curriculum: English Foundation to Year 10 is organised into three interrelated strands that support students' growing understanding and use of Standard Australian English (English). Each strand interacts with and enriches the other strands in creative and flexible ways, the fabric of the curriculum being strengthened by the threads within each sub-strand.
Together, the three strands form an integrating framework of disciplinary knowledge and focus on developing students’ knowledge, understanding and skills in listening, reading, viewing, speaking and writing from Foundation to Year 10. The three strands are:
Language: knowing about the English language
Literature: understanding, appreciating, responding to, analysing and creating literary texts
Literacy: expanding the repertoire of English usage.
Check your State's page for any specific requirements that may be applicable.
The kindergarten course is provided in 4 parts (4 terms). Each part contains 10 weeks' worth of explicit instructions, lessons and activities. The final week of each term, contains progress monitoring assessments and time for revision.
Children are provided with access to one week's worth of lessons at a time. When completed, they progress to the next set of lessons. Revision is built into the course, so sounds and skills are frequently revised.
Each week includes 4 explicit instructional lessons, a storybook and comprehension lesson, and suggested supporting activities to develop newly learnt sounds and skills.
