- The layout of the plans is based on the NCCA Primary Language Curriculum draft long term planning frameworks and they took me 10 of research, typing and formatting to complete. The plans contain the sections suggested by the NCCA in their planning framework, including general aims, the learning outcomes for each strand, methodologies, resources, linkage & integrations, differentiation and assessment.
- In addition to the sections above there are suggested themes/ topics and content each term. This is not based on one particular scheme. The picture books, poems etc. are suggestions that I have found work very well but these suggestions can easily be edited to suit your needs if you are following a particular scheme as these are fully Editable Microsoft Word documents.
- The plan is 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.
