Abstract/Summary Numeracy is a fundamental component of the Australian National Curriculum as a General Capability idenitifed in each F-10 subject. In this paper we report on an aspect of a larger project aimed at investigating how effective cross-curricular numberacy practice can be implemented within the context of the Australian National Cirriculum. Specifically, we draw on a numeracy audit of the English curriculum and on data collected via a semi-structured teacher interview to explore the numeracy demands and opportunites that exist in the teaching of English. Despite limited guidance for teachers in how to take advanteage of numeract skills within English, our investigation reveals that multiple opportunites to do so abound.
