The Australian Curriculum: English Year Level Description for Year One states:
"Students engage with a variety of texts for enjoyment. They listen to and view multimodal texts in designed to entertain and inform. These include Aboriginal stories, picture books, non fiction and dramatic performances. They participate in shared reading and viewing using a range of literary texts, and recognise the entertaining nature of literature"
"In Year 1, students communicate with peers, teachers and students from other classes."
"Students create a range of imaginative texts including performances and literary retellings."
The Year One learning sequence contained in this post was developed by teacher Claire Keenan from Woodlands PS in our work as a Teacher Development School.
The sequence is linked to The Australian Curriculum - English content descriptions.
