Within the strands, the processes of speaking and listening, reading, viewing and writing are represented and language elements such as spelling, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary are developmentally sequenced.

Core skills and conceptual knowledge are embedded within each strand and are sequentially developed throughout each year level.
