Using language, symbols, and texts

Using language, symbols, and texts is about working with and making meaning of the codes in which knowledge is expressed. Languages and symbols are systems for representing and communicating information, experiences, and ideas. People use languages and symbols to produce texts of all kinds: written, oral/aural, and visual; informative and imaginative; informal and formal; mathematical, scientific, and technological.

Students who are competent users of language, symbols, and texts can interpret and use words, number, images, movement, metaphor, and technologies in a range of contexts. They recognise how choices of language, symbol, or text affect people’s understanding and the ways in which they respond to communications. They confidently use ICT (including, where appropriate, assistive technologies) to access and provide information and to communicate with others.

Each week we will explore a Big Book, reading it aloud every day and using this as a springboard for exploring surface features of text, (correct use of capitals and other punctuation, spelling patterns, grammar etc) as well as the deeper features such as writing for a specific audience and a specified genre, ideas, poetic writing techniques such as alliteration or simile/metaphor etc.
