English - St Patrick's East Gosford


The NSW Board of Studies provides the English K–6 Syllabus upon which the students’ learning in English is based.

Learning in English is supported by ten hours each week spent on the three strands of Talking and Listening, Reading and Writing. The outcomes in this syllabus describe the knowledge, skills, understandings and strategies that students demonstrate when learning to talk, listen, read and write. They also specify the knowledge and understandings students develop when learning about talking, listening, reading and writing.

The School’s ‘Literacy Plan’ documents our beliefs, strategies and processes for effective teaching and learning in this Key Learning Area.
