This webinar will provide headteachers, principals, senior leaders and teachers with an expert overview and insight into the new English syllabus for children in kindergarten, year 1 and year 2. It follows the first comprehensive review of the curriculum by the New South Wales (NSW) government in more than 30 years.
On 15 November 2021, the NSW Education Standards Authority published it’s new English K-2 syllabus. It follows several recommendations made in the Masters review related to building strong foundations in the early years and aims to develop students’ understanding of how language use is determined by different contexts, audiences and purposes.
In this webinar Karen Yager, award-winning leader and adviser on academic improvement and English teaching with 25+ years’ experience, will explore the reforms in more depth including how the new syllabus is structured, what skills and competencies the curriculum expects young students to develop and how content has been sequenced to highlight connections across oral language, reading fluency, comprehension, and writing.
