Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 Teaching Sequence Manual

Year Level: Years 3 to 6

The Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 Teaching Sequence Manual outlines what to teach and when to teach it sequence over a full year for Literacy and Oral Language. The manual provides week-by-week guidelines including professional development options and essential PLD evidence-based programs.

Keep in mind that it may be appropriate for schools to adapt the timing of the skills depending upon the demographics of the school community and the associated student entry levels to the school.

We recommended, following a solid period of repeated targeted instruction as outlined in the PLD Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 Teaching Sequence Manual, screens are administered to check in on progress. The Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 Screening & Tracking Manual, which outlines step-by-step instructions including what and when to screen, the materials required, time allocations and discontinue rules is also available to download.

As a support to the Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 Screening & Tracking Manual, PLD has recently released Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 Tracking Sheets Videos which outline how to create the three targeted teaching groups.
