Your purchase includes the following:


  • Two comprehensive, high quality 13 page yearly English plans; one for Fifth class, and a second for Sixth Class based on the Primary Language Curriculum (PLC) for 3rd – 6th Class published in September 2019.
  • The plans contain the sections suggested by the NCCA in their planning framework, including general aims, the learning outcomes for each strand, methodologies, differentiation and assessment. These sections are the same in both the 5th and 6th class plans.
  • In addition to the required sections above, most teachers like to include a monthly breakdown of content, so the plans also have a comprehensive table containing suggested themes/ topics, content, resources, linkage and integration for each month. The content sections of the 5th and 6th class plans are tailored for each class level, and gives suggested poems, novels, picture books, phonics, grammar, handwriting etc. that can be covered each month. This plan is not based on one particular scheme, and so these suggestions can easily be edited to suit your needs if you are following one.


  • Two comprehensive, high-quality sample long term Gaeilge plans; one for Fifth, and one for Sixth Class, based on the Primary Language Curriculum.
  • The plan contains the sections suggested by the NCCA in their PLC planning framework, including general aims, the learning outcomes for each strand, methodologies, differentiation and assessment.
  • The plan also contains suggested poems, songs, stories, grammar, verbs, phonics, and phrases for each month for teachers who are new to a class level and who would like some ideas, or teachers who are not following a publisher’s scheme. There are 2 different versions of the plan, with different suggested content for fifth and sixth classes.
  • If you are following a particular scheme/ textbook and wish to include the content from this, most publishers have a document on their online resources with a monthly breakdown of their content and if you wish you can include this in the plan instead of the table with suggested content that is provided.

These sample long term plans will save you countless hours as the content is already pre-populated, so instead of typing everything from scratch, you can simple edit it to suit. Suggested content for each month is provided for teachers who are new to a class level or for those who would like some new ideas, but you can easily change this to suit your own circumstances if you desire.

    This is an incredible resource. I teach the multiclasses 3rd-6th. I was feeling a little overwhelmed with implementing the New Primary Language Curriculum this year. This planning document has made all the difference and is very comprehensive. A sample is also included which is a helpful guide to filling in the template. What a tremendous amount of work inputted!
