|Expressing and developing ideas||
Explore differences in words that represent people, places and things (nouns, including pronouns), happenings and states (verbs), qualities (adjectives) and details such as when, where and how (adverbs) (ACELA1452) (EN1-9B)
Literature and context
|Discuss how authors create characters using language and images (ACELT1581) (EN1-10C)|

Texts in context
|Respond to texts drawn from a range of cultures and experiences (ACELY1655) (EN1-11D)|
|Interacting with others|
|Interpreting, analysing, evaluating||Use comprehension strategies to build literal and inferred meaning about key events, ideas and information in texts that they listen to, view and read by drawing on growing knowledge of context, text structures and language features (ACELY1660) (EN1-4A)|
Create short imaginative and informative texts that show emerging use of appropriate text structure, sentence-level grammar, word choice, spelling, punctuation and appropriate multimodal elements, for example illustrations and diagrams (ACELY1661) (EN1-4A)
