English/Literacy

This scope and sequence is based around the EAL/D Progress Maps, with the Fitzroy Readers Series as the key resource for literacy. Red Rocket Readers are a supplementary graded resource. Each classroom is also well equipped with age-appropriate fiction and non-fiction reading material, as well as access to internet literacy. In addition, the entire Fitzroy series has been loaded on the school iPads for students to independently read along with.

Literacy, especially writing, is also a significant component of the Science Pathways resources.

Teachers encourage students to use SAE in their responses, and in practicing this prior to writing.

The age-appropriate English ‘Skills and Strategies’ framework (see Appendix) outlines the essential skills, activities and experiences necessary for students’ literacy competence. These are mapped out by each teacher in their Literacy Block using examples developed by Assoc. Professor Konza from ECU.
