Students explore a range of texts and analyse the relationships between language and stylistic features, text types, and contexts. Students also extend their experience of language and explore their ideas through creating their own texts, and reading and viewing the texts of others. Students appreciate how clear and effective writing and speaking displays a depth of understanding, engagement, and imagination for a range of purposes, audiences, and contexts.
