The English program, in line with the new Australian Curriculum, is organised into three interrelated strands.
Together the three strands focus on developing students’ knowledge, understanding and skills in listening, reading, viewing, speaking and writing. The three strands are:
- Language: knowing about the English language
- Literature: understanding, appreciating, responding to, analysing and creating literature
- Literacy: expanding the repertoire of English usage.
When students engage in English learning experiences they will develop the ability to speak, listen, read, view and write with purpose and confidence. They will develop knowledge of the ways in which language varies according to context, i.e. purpose, audience, channel of communication and content.
