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.

Due to the change in circumstances with the pandemic the program has been split into two components of reading LA's providing reading content and HB LA's providing literacy content.
With this in mind.

This program at this time will provide a journal story each week with sound, and the same journal story independently to read with a grown-up. I am also still providing a writing activity for each reading to support this learning for students to choose to do.
