Curriculum - English

The study of English is central to the learning and development of all young Australians. It helps create confident communicators, imaginative thinkers and informed citizens. It is through the study of English that individuals learn to analyse, understand, communicate with and build relationships with others and with the world around them. The study of English helps young people develop the knowledge and skills needed for education, training and the workplace. It helps them become ethical, thoughtful, informed and active members of society. In this light it is clear that the Australian Curriculum: English plays an important part in developing the understanding, attitudes and capabilities of those who will take responsibility for Australia's future.

At Belmay we believe children learn literacy through positive immersion. By engaging in speaking and listening, reading, writing and viewing children will develop to their potential becoming proficient in language.

We endeavour to foster a love of language and the development of good oral skills and written communication. We value that students are individuals and will communicate at varying levels.
