The Curriculum is very broad and the language strand of the curriculum has skills stepped out but they are not in fine detail about what children need to learn. Schools often create their own scope and sequence documents which are helpful for teachers to see the fine detail of the learning required by children and what teachers have to teach. Some schools use the English Document called Letters and Sounds.
There are many scope and sequence documents and most align fairly closely as the skills are mapped out from least difficult to most difficult.
