The plans contain all sections suggested by the NCCA in their planning framework including aims, learning outcomes for each strand, 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, stories etc. that can be covered each month. The Primary Language Curriculum requires that early reading and writing in Irish be covered at Infant level and I have included activities for this. These plans are not based on a particular scheme, but contain suggestions for content that I have found work well with infants.
The suggested content is the same for JI and SI, but if you are following a particular scheme and wish to include that, most publishers have a yearly outline of the content to cover each month as part of their digital resources and if you prefer, you can include this content instead of my suggestions.
The 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.
