Oz-e-English: Writing (Language) Foundation Year is an English unit for Foundation Year students.

It aligns to the Australian Curriculum 8.4: Language Content Strands:
Text structure and organisation
Understand that punctuation is a feature of written text different from letters; recognise how capital letters are used for names, and that capital letters and full stops signal the beginning and end of sentences (ACELA1432)

Expressing and developing ideas
Recognise that sentences are key units for expressing ideas (ACELA1435)
Recognise that texts are made up of words and groups of words that make meaning (ACELA1434)
Phonics and word knowledge
Recognise and generate rhyming words, alliteration patterns, syllables and sounds (phonemes) in spoken words (ACELA1439)
Know how to read and write some high-frequency words and other familiar words (ACELA1817)

Note: Information on this page is subject to change as this program is currently being updated to align with version 9.0 of the Australian Curriculum. GGSA will release an updated version in early 2023.
Learning objectives
In Lessons 1 to 10, students learn to:
  • Say, make, trace and write a sentence about game we can play (Aboriginal).
  • Say, make, trace and write a sentence about game we can play (Chinese).
  • Say, make, trace and write a sentence about game we can play (British).
Progress test
Progress tests are conducted after Lesson 5. They allow teachers to monitor student understanding of the concepts taught over the past five lessons and to identify where reteaching is needed. The Teaching Guide contains the progress test script and there is a handout for students to write their answers on.

End-of-unit assessment
Week 10 is the end-of-unit assessment. It has the same variety of question formats as the progress tests (e.g. multiple choice, filling in blanks/punctuation, editing, constructing and improving sentences) to assess student mastery of sentence level writing development from the unit.
The Teaching Guide contains the testing questions and the end-of-unit assessment handout for students to write their answers on.
