Australian Curriculum: English links to First Steps Foundation to Year 7

 Baynton West Primary School is a fellow Teacher Development School. They have collated a resource linking Australian Curriculum: English to First Steps. 

The fantastic thing about this document is that it not only lists the area from First Steps that the Content Description links to. It ALSO lists the exact page number in the First Steps book.

This document is very useful is bringing the WHAT to an evidence based HOW such as First Steps.

Woodlands would like to thank the team at Baynton West for all their hard work in collating this information. We have already found it very useful in our weekly planning meetings with teachers.

If you are a Department of Education in Western Australia employee, you can access the document via Connect in the Communities section. Join the Australian Curriculum English Primary (K-7) community and then locate the documents in the Library under Baynton West.

If you are a non DoE WA teacher, you can download the documents via the links below.
