This year we have introduced a new specialist area for language at Coral Park Primary School. Auslan (Australian sign language) is a visual form of communication for people who are deaf or hard of hearing. It uses hand, arm and body movements to convey meaning.
The whole school focus for AUSLAN in Term 2 is the home and family. Students will continue to develop their fluency in signing the AUSLAN fundamentals including greetings, the alphabet and numbers. Students will also learn how to ask and answer questions in AUSLAN and share their likes and dislikes. Depending on their year level, students will be focusing on being able to recognise, demonstrate and respond to the sign language associated with family members, pets and actions performed at home.
