The Victorian Curriculum F–10 incorporates the Australian Curriculum and reflects Victorian priorities and standards. Students participate in discussions, debates and presentations on a range of issues. They extend their writing skills to include more informative and objective language and write in more formal genres. They develop their skills in analysing characters and recognising word and clause boundaries in extended text. Students explore the influence of English on their own communication in Chinese, both in pronunciation and in linguistic structures. They share ideas about how they can contribute to Australian society through maintaining their bilingualism and through the development and consolidation of intercultural knowledge and skills.
