Understand that language is organised as ‘texts’, which take different forms and use different structures and features to achieve their purposes

[Key concepts: genre, text, meaning; Key processes: noticing, applying]

 (ACLFRU014)

Elaborations
  • understanding that texts can be spoken, written, digital, visual or multimodal and that they can be very short (Stop! or a hand gesture to signify Arrête!) or much longer (Il était une fois…)
  • recognising that different types of text have different features (for example, rhythm and repetition in action songs and rhymes) and use different language, for example, formal or informal forms of address (Bonjour, Monsieur; Merci beaucoup, Madame; Salut, Annie!)
  • comparing similar texts in French and English such as counting games or street signs, identifying elements in the French texts which look or sound different
  • developing a language to talk about language and texts (metalanguage), and naming familiar types of text (story, poem, recipe, list) and talking about how they work, for example, using the story-starter Il était une fois…; rhyming and repeating words in songs such as Trois p’tits chats…
