English learning intention cards aligned to the Australian Curriculum.

A set of  Learning Intention cards, perfect to display in the classroom to promote visible learning and explicitly show students what their learning goals are for a particular concept.

These learning intention cards have been written using the English Content Descriptions found in the Australian Curriculum v8.3 and have been created to use with our We’re Aiming High – Bump It Up Data Wall Display.

Print off the learning intention card that you wish to focus on with your class then laminate and display at the front of the class or attach it to the Bump It Up Learning Intention poster.

Use these learning intention cards as a generic learning goal then, as a class, determine the success criteria.

Please note that the success criteria for each learning intention card will be different for every class, depending on the ability level of the students. It is important to create the success criteria together as a class from the chosen learning intention card by making a list of the steps required to achieve the goal.

Use this resource with our We’re Aiming High – Bump It Up Data Wall Display.

    This is great and saves soooo much work 🙂 Thank u 🙂

    Is it possible to change the border colour for each year level?

    I have a split class yr5/6 and the border is pale blue on both…it would be great is they were 2 different colours so I can show the difference between the 2 yr levels when I put them up on my board under my learning intention headings 🙂

    Thanks again 🙂

    Loving this! It has saved me so much time typing them up myself to display on my class’ focus board!
    Wondering if this will also be done for science / HaSS / health / technology, etc?
