English K-6 develops students' knowledge, skills and understanding of English language and literature. It is based on an approach to language that describes the ways that people use language.


People use language for three main purposes:

This approach to language enables teachers and students to explore and analyse how language works in different contexts, including picture books, novels, newspapers, letters, conversations, speeches, plays, feature films, television programs, computer graphics, CD-ROMs and advertisements.

Competence in English will enable students to: learn about themselves, their own and other cultures, to communicate their thoughts and feelings, to participate in society, to make informed decisions about personal and social issues, to analyse information and viewpoints and to use their imagination.
