LOTE - Auslan

L.O.T.E. (Language Other Than English) Auslan


Mrs. Corrina Hartland teaches LOTE - Auslan to the students on various days through the week.


Students develop an understanding of the differences between Auslan and spoken English. They complete activities aimed at consolidating their knowledge of the letters of the alphabet, including how to fingerspell their own name, numbers, colours, family and people, days of the week and how to sign "I like..."


As students continue to develop an understanding they are introduced to signs for common actions such as run, walk, jump, hop, sit, stand and swim. They watch videos of stories being read in Auslan, play games and complete written tasks to develop their Auslan knowledge.
