Students are exposed to rich and varied literature sources and text types, including contemporary and classic texts, Australian Aboriginal storytelling and news articles.
Each level of the Activity Books includes core units which offer clear Language explanations followed by scaffolded activities to use the language in context and build on grammar, vocabulary, spelling, reading and writing skills.
