A set of 11 comprehensive, high-quality yearly plans for Junior or Senior Infants. Long term plans included in this bundle are for: English, Gaeilge, Maths, Art, Drama, Music, PE, SPHE, Science, History, and Geography. I created these plans during my Dip year to follow the NIPT long-term planning template and guidelines. The plans contains aims, strands and strand units, list all objectives from the curriculum, outline skills and concepts to be developed, give details of approaches and methodologies, list resources, outline assessment and differentiation strategies, and give possible areas of integration with other subjects.
NEW LANGUAGE CURRICULUM UPDATE:
I have included an updated version of the English and Gaeilge plans for the 2015 New Language Curriculum with this bundle. There is a 15 page long-term plan for English and a 10 page long-term plan for Gaeilge.
The layout of the plans are based on the NCCA draft long term planning frameworks and these plans took me over 10 hours each to complete!
The plans contains all sections suggested by the NCCA in their planning framework including aims, learning outcomes for each strand, a section where you can mark which progression milestone the children are on at the beginning of the year and where you want them to be at the end of the year/ term, and a comprehensive table for terms 1,2, and 3 containing the strands, themes/ topics, suggested content, methodologies, differentiation, assessment, linkage and integration.
The content section gives suggested poems, rhymes, songs, phonics, letter formation big books etc. that can be covered each month. The New Language Curriculum requires that early reading and writing in Irish be covered at Infant level and I have included activities for this.
Both plans are for a whole year, however I have a separate table for Term 1, Term 2 and Term 3, so even if you are doing your long-term plans by term you can just keep the section you need.
I also have these Gaeilge and English plans on sale separately at €10 each, but here you can buy them as part of this bundle at a much discounted price!
I have left my old long-term English and Gaeilge plans based on the 1999 curriculum here as you may wish to draw on both plans for the 2017-2018 school year when schools are required to begin the implementation of the reading and writing strands of the new curriculum (the oral language strand’s implementation was begun in the 2016/2017 school year).
