The Australian Curriculum: English Year Level Description for Foundation states:
"Students create a range of imaginative, informative and persuasive texts including pictorial representations, short statements, performances, recounts and poetry"
Create in the Australian Curriculum is defined in the glossary as "develop and/or produce spoken, written or multimodal texts in print or digital forms."
Multimodal means more than one mode is represented. This could be a combination of pictures, words, sounds - more than ONE mode.
