Aligns with Foundation Year and Year 1 Australian Curriculum ACARA so that students can recognise that texts are created by authors who tell stories and share experiences that may be similar or different to students’ own experiences. Students should also be able to respond to texts, identifying favourite stories, authors and illustrators and identify some features of texts including events and characters and retell events from a text.
