Australian Curriculum English: Year Five Learning Sequence - "The Coat" by Julie Hunt and Ron Brooks

The Year Five learning sequence contained in this post was developed by teacher Sofia Delios from Bertram PS. Sofia is a valued member of our Woodlands Australian Curriculum Implementation (WACI) Club which meets each month to discuss planning and assessment in Australian Curriculum:English. During term 2 of this year, WACI Club focused on planning for Reading and Viewing using AC:E. Thanks Sofia for being a guest on our blog and allowing us to share your plan!
