Comprehensive content and handy yearly plans
Access to English Stars includes four year levels of content (Years 3–6), with each year level consisting of 8–9 engaging units of work. Each unit is made up of several modules that teach the comprehension, grammar and text type concepts required for the unit’s assessment.

English Stars is packed full of meaningful multimodal content and resources to help you carry out robust and interesting English lessons.
English Stars has a variety of literary, persuasive and informative texts, from modern children’s literature extracts to bespoke information reports.
These texts are embedded throughout units to help teach tricky concepts, practise comprehension skills, model text types and act as stimulus for activities.

All bases are covered with English Stars’ activities, with online and offline options, differentiation, automatic marking and data collection.
Along with a wide range of activity types, including multiple-choice, cloze, text editing and composition, English Stars also offers a choice of activity delivery – with printable activities or online + printable activities.
With all students having access to Years 3–6 of English Stars, you’ll love the flexibility that four year levels of content offers. What’s more, most modules include both core and extension activities to cater for the needs of your students.
Automatic marking is the ultimate time-saver! Not only do students get instant verification of their answers, they’re also directed to consolidation or extension activities based on their results.

For classes where students have online + printable activities, results are conveniently collated into class and student portfolios.
