Compose very simple text to communicate ideas or basic information
(i) Decide what to include in very simple texts. E.g. Address an envelope. Leave a message for a friend or colleague. Text a friend.
(ii) Communicate ideas and basic information in very simple texts. E.g. Write about self in class, using important names and words of personal significance, e.g. own name, children's names, country of origin.
Write numbers and dates accurately, e.g. the day's date, date of birth, telephone number, postal code. Enter user/login name and password to access a computer
