This Area of Learning focuses on children being immersed in language experiences and activities. Their skills develop through talking, signing/ communicating and listening.
They are encouraged to communicate their needs, feelings and thoughts and retell experiences. Some children will communicate by means other than speech.
Children refer to their intentions by asking questions, voicing/ expressing opinions, reacting to situations and making choices through a variety of media. They are encouraged to listen and respond to others.
They have opportunities to choose and use reading materials, understand conventions of print and books and are given a wide range of opportunities to enjoy mark making and writing experience.
